    Telephone, Mobile and Long Distance Calling Cards

    Telephone Access

    There are public phone booths available around Tianjin require either coins, or sometimes calling cards. Calling cards are available from the post office, hotels, newsstands and convenience stores. The phones take all coins and the phone cards (IC cards) come in RMB 30, RMB 50 and RMB 100 denominations.

    Mobile Phones

    There are several options with using mobile phones

    1. The easiest, but most expensive way is to bring your phone to China and keep it on your home network with roaming enabled. This will enable you to receive and make phone calls using your phone number. However this option is expensive due to roaming charges. Additionally, people within China will be charged more because they will have to ring internationally.
    2. The second most popular option is to buy a local SIM card. The SIM cards are available for a one-time fee of approximately RMB 100 (US$12) and work by buying recharge cards for RMB 50, RMB 100, RMB 300 and RMB 500 respectively. With this option, there are a couple of options when choosing your local SIM network.

    China Mobile SIM Cards

    This works throughout China and the SIM card is available at many outlets throughout China, including the airport. The price to make a local call on this network is about RMB 0.60 per minute. However the downside to China Mobile is that they also charge a small fee for receiving phone calls. International calls vary dependant on the country you are calling.

    Other SIM Cards

    The other option is to get a local SIM card that works only in the city you are in. Choosing this option allows you to receive calls without being charged. If you are bringing a mobile phone with you, make sure that it is capable of accepting SIM cards for other networks, and it is not locked to your home local network.

    Long Distance Calling Cards

    Calling cards are one of the cheapest ways to make international calls. The cards are used with landlines or mobiles and are easy to use; they usually have English instructions on the back of the card. The cards can be obtained from mobile phone shops, some convenience stores and newsstands. There are also a variety of different companies offering cards and the charges vary dependant of time of call and the country you are calling. Another inexpensive option is to make international calls over the Internet, using programs such as Skype, and internet cafes with high-speed internet access are abundant in Tianjin.
