[quote=“maunaloa”][quote=“catfish13”] With Zhonghua I think you need to go and get a throwaway SIM for pay by the day internet.[/quote] ???
My Zhonghua 3G USIM has the standard 2G SIM terms… recharge good for 6 months, number good for a year w/o recharge.[/quote]
I’m talking about their prepaid “internet by the day program.” To get mobile internet by the day, you need to go to a Chunghwa Telecom office and pay for 3 or 5 days worth internet, and they will give you a SIM which is activated then and set to deactivate at the end of your paid internet period.
You can get your 2G prepaid service converted to 3G by going to a Chunghwa Telecom office and filling out some paperwork. They’ll hand you a new SIM which is set to turn on a couple of days later.
If you don’t use unlimited plans, your balance will run out within minutes. At CHT’s $.005/packet (128 byes) rate, a MB of transmission will cost you NT$40.96.
