    SIM for USA and Canada

    I am travelling too the USA and Canada soon and would normally purchase a SIM when I arrive in the new place. However, I am having trouble finding a decent SIM package. Buying a burner phone and SIM seems more the done thing in North America. I am reluctant to buy a HK wifi egg package from my phone provider here at $128 a day- extortionate!

    I am likely to use data for maps, internet so calls less of an issue.

    Can anyone suggest a decent provider either here in HK, Canada (first destination) or the US. A package that does both would be ideal.

    Thanks.

    Head to Ap Liu Street, Sham Shui Po. You will find scores of vendors selling USA SIM cards. If you don't want to take the trouble to travel, scan through hktvmall.com and order one you like.

    Please do sort it out on this side, it will likely be more expensive in the US and may be hard to find (as in, you might have to go to a mobile store, not something you want to do on a trip).

    Presuming you don't want to get a wifi hotspot / SIM package deal, It is cheaper to get the SIM card here.
    Don't know where you are located but there is a shop in Causeway Bay that sells the SIM that SHRI linked to for $110.

    Wow! Thanks- loads to look at.

    This looks ideal for 30 days split across USA and Canada.

    the store I linked to has a sim that does both canada and the usa for 150.

    note: I'm not affiliated with the store / don't know the guys name / just have bought sims there in the past
