There are several reasons that you may want to rent a phone for your trip to China instead of purchasing a SIM card for your phone. The main reason is to product yourself against security breaches which are increasingly common in China. Nonetheless, if you have an extra unlocked phone or don’t mind taking the risk, our China SIM card features a Chinese number, 10 GB of data and 30 minutes of conventional direct dialing to China. Please note that WeChat is commonly used to make calls in China and we highly recommend that you download it. To call the US and Canada, we recommend using a calling app such as Whatsapp, Talkatone or FaceTime. You will however probably will have to use a VPN to use these apps as well as to use Google, Facebook and to view many American and Canadian websites.
*When you download an app, such as Talkatone, you can make free unlimited calls and texts to the USA and Canada.
