    So which sim card would be the cheapest for moving back to Canada? Want to retain my wife's and my HK number for SMS purposes.

    Lucky sim HK$138 for 3 years, works out to HK$3.83/month. This will allow you to receive SMS in Canada.

    Or if you want full roaming in Canada, there is a 6 year option for $328. Works out to HK$4.55/month. But you dont get much data with that, only 5GB spread over 6 years

    To port current number to lucky SIM, have to visit one of their locations in HK, cannot do it online unless you want a brand new number.

    I ended up joining Birdie on their HKD50/ month plan. Receiving SMS overseas no problem.

    I use the China Mobile prepaid - 50 bucks every six months is enough to keep the card alive and good for receiving OTP SMS at no charge.

    (and as a bonus - assuming not used for anything else - over time the value will accumulate and if visiting HK for a holiday or somesuch - then can use without paying any extra)
