All 3 telecos have 3G prepaid Data SIMs. DaGeDa is slightly more expensive for the unlimited data plans BUT are the ONLY one that can provide both telecommunication services & 3G data together.

Meaning to say, with the other telecos, you can only use the net but not the phone. So bo bian, got dageda unlimited 3G + talktime.

Should have gotten the least talk time SIM. Used Email and Watsapp all the way. . Note: the value expires in 6mths.

Does the iPad take a regular sized SIM card? I posted my experience with CHT and FarEasTone in this thread: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293910-i9303-k354…

no ipads uses the micro sim... i think... anyways ipads dun use the regular sim cards...

but what i intend is to get a regular 3g taiwan sim card...

and use it with a mifi device... so both me and my partner can be on wifi when we are outdoors and need to check out google maps or translate stuffs using the iphone or something...

Forumer Zone 123 in Taipei now posted:

hi all,

i am in taiwan now. i arrived at taipei airport terminal 2 travelling in sq flight.

i am also in search of taiwan da ge da, as i had read about this forum.

after collect all the bags, clearance then walked to the arrived hall. after that u have to turn left, then after a few steps turn left again. then you will see

some telco booths there, you will not miss it.

taiwam mobile ( taiwan da ge da ) is there.

yes, who forum messages mentioned above is correct for the price plan.

as for me , travelling with my wife with iphone 3gs and 4 respectively, we bought a normal 3g sim card and a small micro sim card for the iphone 4. (those who need one for iphone4, no problem, they have sim card for u).

we opt for for a 5 days 3g data plan each.

each cost nt$345. we did not purchase for voice,

as the staff told us, it still has some value inside ( i think is nt$5) if u really need voice call later, can easily topup voice or even top up 1 day ,3days or another 5 days later.

we did not bother to get voice because, since everyone in the travelling group are using iphones,

oh yes please do not forget,

you really have to present your nric as a form of identification, witj effect from oct 2010, this apply to other isp.

erm, do not ask me or tell me such thing as

going oversea use passport will do, why use nric,

anyway this is their policy, if we want to use their service, we got to follow their procedure.

as i saw another 2 pair of couples, did not bring, still argue with the staffs, as a result didnt buy.

so, dun tell me go oversea use only passport.

i read this forum, i understand it. so in order to speed up the process, i bring along. else i will be causing delays for others waiting behind me.

( coming for tour, must be happy, dun argue)
