China Data enabled SIM Card
The China SIM Card comes with an initial credit worth 3GB - this is more than most people will use for their entire trip for emails, data-based apps, web browsing and social networking. If you are going for additional months, Cellular Abroad can provide you with another 3GB of credit for the next monthly period.
If your cell phone is not compatible for use in China, we also offer affordable cell phone rentals and cell phone purchases for China. Most of our customers prefer to purchase our entry level handset as it costs about as little to purchase as to rent. Please feel free to compare!

Listen to an Overview
A data enabled SIM card specifically intended for use in China is the most cost effective way to access mobile broadband while in China. The "Internet Everywhere" data SIM from Chinese carrier China Unicom protects you from high data roaming fees associated with international roaming with your U.S. cell phone service provider. With our China SIM card, you are not roaming; the data fees are extremely affordable - the initial SIM card offers 9GB of data for use in China. Additional data credit can be added to your account - $99 provides you an additional 30 days and 9GB month of 3G speed data. The SIM card is available in mini, micro, or nano size and it's compatible with the latest Apple products like iPhone 6, 6S, and iPad pro, air and mini seris as well other smart phone models like the HTC X One, Nokia Lumia 900 and Samsung Android OS's.
Please note: This SIM card is NOT enabled for voice. If you need a communications solution for calls and texts, please consider our Hong Kong & China 2-in-1 SIM Card. If you have a smart phone, you can always consider using a VoIP app like Skype to make voice calls, but be aware that high-quality VoIP calls can use up data quickly
