    Temp Cell Phone Services

    Hi there,

    I will be travelling to HK/China in the next few weeks for some vacation time. I was just wondering if it is possible to get mobile service in HK for a few days, so I can communicate with people @ Home (Canada).
    What about China? Can the HK mobile service be used in China aswell?

    If yes, what are some providers/plans that I can use?


    Thanks

    Any prepaid sim card will have a roaming agreement with networks in mainland china so you shouldn't have a problem in that department.

    The sim card is about $100 hk and you'll get around $90 worth of credit on it.

    I think the Sunday shops have a promotion on which is not on their website. I have two of their prepaid sim cards for my parents visiting this month.
