Im going to China at the end of Feb. for work. I was wondering if anyone here can give me some tips on how to get my photon working over there? Do I wait till I'm there and buy a sim card? Only going to be there for 7 to 10 days but it would be nice to have my phone working. Thanks for any advice. This will be the first time I have been out of the country with my photon and I would love to take advantage of my first "world phone".
The sim card is already in the phone. All you have to do is try and use it and you will automatically connect to the Sprint international network. I would call Sprint before I left the lower 48 to make sure the sim card is activated.
buy a sim card in China, I bet it is cheaper.. cause Sprint is gonna want to charge you an eye and a leg for the international service.. A lot of people know that buying a sim card from the local carriers is cheaper.
