    Prepaid SIM for voice/sms/data

    I'll be visiting HK for a week or two every three or four month. Can everyone recommend a good card to get? I plan to use it with a smartphone, so Im sure there will be some data usage along with some voice and mostly text. I'd likely need to send text to China. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't think you can access internet with a prepaid.
    SMS to China is easy , just dd +86 to it
    for cheaper calls there are prefixes
    any of the big providers will do
