Ken (Apr 18, 2014):
You'd better to contact the seller who you bought the sim card for the details of your plan. I have no idea on this.
Luke Wallace (Feb 14, 2014):
Hi I am currently living in China and I want to buy some internet for my phone so I can tether it using my laptop and connect to it. I would need to be doing a lot of downloading, especially since I be using video chat with friends and family back home. Which data plan would you advise me select for this purpose? How much per month?

Lucia (Sep 2, 2013):
Hi, im at beijing now. I have china mobile simcard and activated the data plan but it didnt works, and ny balance is deducted 50 a day. And I sent more than one message to activate the data plan.do you have local number that I can text?
Ken (Sep 4, 2013):
If you have a new sim card, then it should work from the first day of next month, thank you.
Tuan (May 9, 2013):

ksdtmuppet (Mar 2, 2013):
Is a nano-sim available for the iPhone 5?
Thank you.
ksdtmuppet (Mar 2, 2013):
Hi Ken. Is there a Nano-SIM option available for the iPhone 5? Thanks.

Ken (Mar 2, 2013):
Sorry we have no Nano-sim card available.
Mercury1 (Jan 29, 2013):
Thank you very much for your response! One more question before I make a decision:
How do I activate the data plan once in China? Do I send a text message to China Mobile?
Thank you Sir. I would also like to mention that you have a fantastic web site. Keep up the good work!
Ken (Jan 29, 2013):
Normally two ways we do. We activate the data plan before shipping, or when you arrived China and activated sim card then send us a SMS or call us, and we activated data plan for you manually. If you can read Chinese then you can send SMS commond to China Mobile to activate data plan by yourself.
Mercury1 (Jan 22, 2013):
Dear Sir / Madam:

Very interested in the China Mobile Prepaid EDGE/GPRS Data SIM Card Plan50. Suppose I order it from you, slip it into my iPhone upon entry into China in mid-March and activate the SIM card and 50 yuan data plan on my day of arrival in China:
Question 1: If I decide that the around 45 yuan left for calling won't be enough, how can I add more credit?
Question 2: What happens at the end of the month with the 50 yuan data plan? Will I automatically be charged
Ken (Jan 24, 2013):
1. You can buy China Mobile recharge card and refill this sim card. It's easy to get a China Mobile recharge card in China just like to buy one newspaper.
2. At the end of the month, 10 yuan monthly fee will be charged from the credit for next month, if you activated data plan, data fee will be charged too. If credit is out, the service suspended until refilled.
james (Aug 3, 2012):
I bought a sim in Jinan. I really only need it for data and getting calls. How do I activate free incoming and a cheap data plan? I should have bought from your site as it is very hard to get through to CM customer service. 4 days now and no answer.
Thanks in advance.
Ken (Aug 4, 2012):
Not all sim card has free incoming plan, so please contact China Mobile to make sure what kind a sim card you have. Read this for more info about China sim card please.

lyn (Jul 29, 2012):
hi i am arriving in shandong next week 7 aug. possible to send there to me if i am purchasing the 100 yuan sim card? it's for iPhone4, so will need a micro sim card. or if i can purchase it at beijing airport?
then i will be traveling to sichuan, will it work there as well?
Ken (Jul 30, 2012):
Sorry we can not delivey it before Aug 7th for our office now is closed and we will back after Aug 18, thank you. This sim card is from Guangdong and it supports international outgoing calls in nation wide. If you only need data and some local calls, you can buy one at Beijing airport.
Julia Tolman (Jul 21, 2012):
I am going to be going to Shenzhen in about a month and am considering the 50 yuan plan with 500MB data. Is this plan only for data or does it include minutes or money for talking and texting?
Ken (Jul 21, 2012):
This sim card includes 100 yuan credit and once 50 yuan data plan applied, it still has some money for talking and texting. If needed this sim card also can be refilled. Thank you.
Rafael (Jul 10, 2012):
Ken, I understand. So the data plan comes imediatelly active, and not only for the next month like in China Mobile Cards for Beijing. The card will work automatically for data after inserted on Iphone4 or I will need to configure cmwap?
Ken (Jul 10, 2012):
You need to set up APN as cmnet then let Login and Password empty. If you need MMS then Relay server URL: http://mmsc.monternet.com, Proxy servers:, that's all.
Rafael (Jul 9, 2012):
Hello Ken, thanks for your clarifications.
500MB data plan is already active for current month of July or only for next month? I will need it right away.
How long does it take to arrive in Beijing after ordering?
Ken (Jul 10, 2012):
It takes one day to delivery it to Beijing unless airports closed for very bad weather.

The sim card we have is new and unactivated. So suppose we activated one card on 5th July, then 5th of each month is its billing date. Then if we apply data plan between 5th to 20th (first half month), China Mobile charges full fee (50 yuan) and releases 500 MB for this billing cycle, if we activated data plan on one day between 21th to 5th of next Month, then half fee (25 yuan) charges for half t
Rafael (Jul 9, 2012):
Im arriving to Beijing next Wednesday and am considering your China Mobile Prepaid EDGE/GPRS Data SIM Card Plan50 for my Iphone 4 (GSM).
Does it come already with credit or this should be added?
Besides the KTSJLL50 data plan, can I also activate on this same SIM card the KTCTWY plan - 10 RMB/month for unlimited incoming calls, 20 minutes of outgoing calls ?
Is 12593 international service already activated or I should go to a China Mobile store for IDD?
Is it a Bejing number
Ken (Jul 9, 2012):
1. Yes credit is already added by us.
2. KTSJLL50 and KTCTWY are commonds for Beijing SIM card, however our sim card is from Guangdong, so they can not work. Our sim card has not KTCTWY plan.
3. 12593 international service in whole China is ready, not only in Beijing.
4. It's a Guangdong number.

I will be traveling to Beijing and Shanghai at the end of May. I would like to get a prepaid MicroSIM for my iPhone 4S to use to make local calls and 3G data. Is it possible purchase a sim card at the Beijing airport?
