sim cardSim Cards

Please note that Thai GSM Sim cards only work with unlocked GSM phones that are compatible for use overseas, most dual-band GSM phones will not work, you will need a tri-band versions, or quad-band GSM Phone. Currently in the United States T-Mobile and Cingular offer phones that will support Asian Sim Cards but they need to be unlocked.

prepaid cardPre-paid Thai GSM Sim Card
The prepaid SIM card for Thailand is easily the least expensive solution for making and receiving cellular phone calls while you are in Thailand. All incoming calls, regardless of their origin, are always, absolutely free. Three main companies provide these sim cards within Thailand at this time. AIS 1 2 Call, DTAC, and True.  With pre-paid calling, you are always know your phone expenses and there are no heart attacks when you receive your phone bill. Your SIM card will come with a base number of call credits. When you have used up this credit or whenever you want to add more to the existing amount, you can rechargethe SIM card in your phone by purchasing a recharge voucher card at a local convenience outlet such as a magazine stand, tobacco shop, 7/11-type store or at the corresponding phone store. These are sold in denominations from 50 THB to 1500THB.

AIS 1 2 Call, it is the largest provider within Thailand offers great service and low rates.  All cell number in Thailand start with 08, for example 08x xxx xxxx. You do need to know a few simple things to much using your phone here easy.

First you need to have a unlocked phone that takes GSM Sim cards and has the 900MHz band. This in the band use throughout most of Asia. It is not the band used in North America, so you will need to have a tri-band or quad-band phone.

Once here place the Sim card into your phone, and dial *120 then press send or call on your phone. You will here a recorded voice, first speaking Thai and then in Ehglish, it will asked you to select option 2 for English. Just press the two key on the phone and your Sim Card and service is active and ready to make or receive calls.

A few important numbers to know are *120 to add more airtime to your phone, and *121 to check the balance of airtime left on your phone.

The International country code for Thailand is 66, so anyone calling you from outside of Thailand need to add 66 before your number. Very important, if your phone is being called from outside of Thailand the caller must drop the 0 at the start of your number. So a US / Canada caller would dial 011 (International Access) plus 668x-xxx-xxxx.

If you want to call the US or Canada from your cell phone here in Thailand, you need to dial a international access code; 001 or 008 or 009 and then 1 (area code) (number). The cost of placing calls is different for each access code; 001, is the best working and works with all numbers but cost the most per minute, 008 is the least costly per minute but does not always work, 009 cost a little more than 008 but not all numbers work. I would start with 008, then 009, and use 001 last.
