 If your phones unlocked ,simple really,you buy a month SIM card from the many on offer, you pay ,they connect you after showing your passport details and your away.Tourist prices are not a rip off.

The cheapest deal currently is with CAT Telecom. Their My By CAT Prepaid SIM offers 31 days of unlimited 4 Mbps data for 96.30 baht inclusive of VAT

 

Pop into one of their shops/offices with your passport, obtain a SIM, choose a main package. my Super Khum will do; http://www.mybycat.com/en/PrePay.php?package=8_my-Super-Khum . You can apply it by tapping in *905*01# and then pressing the Dial key or get them to do it in the shop for you.

Top up 100 baht and then apply *906*490# and then the dial key to applied the unlimited 4 Mbps Internet package.

 

The caveat is that the deal is currently only available until the end of this month. You haven't mentioned your date of your arrival.

For those who wish to take advantage of the deal for a bit longer, there are actually two promo codes. One for 15 days of unlimited 4 Mbps data; *960*445# and the other for 31 days. The terms of the deal is that you have to apply the codes within 31 days of opening. So theoretically, you can apply the 15 day code, costing 48.15 baht and when that runs out, the 31 day code for 96.30 baht.

 

But for Scutty, he should apply the 31 day code for his month long trip.

 

They should set the SIM up in your phone if you ask nicely. Otherwise; http://www.mybycat.com/en/Service_Set3G.php

The only minor inconvenience that I have found (so far) with CAT is that their shops are very few and far between. The other brands such as True, DTAC, AIS etc seem to have shops every few yards and in every mall, but with CAT you are lucky to have even one in a city the size of Pattaya, and they only work very limited government department hours. So "popping in" may be a bit problematic.

They do apparently have a branch at BKK airport.

Have just run this past the person beside me who tells me that the signal for  CAT Telecom is not good.

I will be in Thailand for 30 days, mostly in Bangkok but possibly in Pattaya for a day or two to meet with a real estate agent. I will need to work on the move. This package would work perfect for me and is far cheaper than 1-2 call is currently offering (my usual provider).

 

Can someone who uses their services comment on the signal reception in Bangkok and Pattaya for CAT Telecom? I would very much appreciate and be grateful for your quick response.
