Pre-paid card for mobile phone with data plan

Hi, can anyone recommend me a pre-paid card that comes with unlimited data plan? I will be in HK for 4 days and I will Ljmbe meeting friends there. I reckon it's cheaper to get a Pre paid card. And how much does it cost Approx.

There is 1010 at the Departure Hall at the HKIA which you need to take the elevator as soon as you are coming out from the arrival hall. They are almost cost the same as others are 3 Shop, PCCW and the SmarTone. 1010 is affilated with CSL and one2free and since your stay is four days, you can ask them which one is best value. I believe HK$ 98.00 should be sufficient.

If you want 3G prepaid data, then you pretty much have to go with 3. PCCW only has EDGE/wifi on prepaid.

I used this 3 prepaid card when I was in HK a few months ago:

three.com.hk/website/appmanager/three/home…

Data is charged $2HKD/MB with a daily maximum charge of $28. That means you can get unlimited data for $28/day.

There's a 3 shop shop in the departure level in the airport. Just head on upstairs after exciting the arrival area and find it. The staff there speaks good English and will give you help.

@Leehy, yep,as advised, you pretty much have to go with 3.

Other one is CSL but data plan on prepaid is costly.

Other telcos prepaid are only 2G.

Not sure if they have the SIM in 3FF form factor for the iPhone4 for prepaid.

In fact,when iPhone4 came out, we took the normal SIM card,and just using a puncher(Noosy) and it punches to 3FF form factor dimensions and can be used on the iPhone4 and also iPad.

Just do remember to bring along the SIM ejector pin.
