Before getting a SIM Card
Recommended for those who need to make voice calls and use 4G mobile data & SMS!
If you are a traveler who needs to make calls and also wants to use mobile data anywhere while traveling in Thailand, purchasing a prepaid SIM Card is ideal for you instead of renting or buying a portable WiFi router.
It is much more convenient and safer to make a reservation online for the SIM Card in advance and stay connected as soon as you arrive at the airport.
After you book online, you can simply pick up the device at the airports in Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi Airport, Don Mueang Airport) and Phuket International Airport.
Before getting a SIM Card
While/after booking it online, follow the steps below:
- Unlock your phone through your cellphone carrier before coming to Thailand.
- Be sure to write down your name as exactly the same as your passport while booking. If not, you won’t be able to pick up your SIM Card!
*If you are from US, Canada, or Japan, make sure you check with your carrier before traveling to Thailand. If your phone device is locked, you won’t be able to use some of the prepaid SIM Cards.
