This is a HK$198 pre-paid SIM card from the cell carrier “Three.” Navigating the Three website is a bit tricky. I believe this SIM card is most similar to the 3G Rechargeable SIM Card for iPad, which also caps the price of data at HK$18 per day.
If you want to work with your Prepaid SIM on Three’s website, don’t use the obvious login box — that’s not for you. You actually need to click the link near the top that says “Prepaid SIM.” On the left side, you’ll have these options:
Bill enquiry / Customer Service
- Check Account Enquiry
- Online Recharge
- Wi-Fi Password Setting
- Change Password
- Apply / Cancel “Data Roaming Daily Pass”
- Turn On/ Off Data Network Shield
That’s where you can change your 6-digit password and top-up online.
If you use the site’s other login form, you’ll get this error:
Sorry! The mobile number/password you’ve entered is still incorrect.
Please retry later or contact 3 Customer Service Hotline 31663333 for enquiry.
When doing an online top-up with credit card, how long does it take for the transaction to be processed?
In my case, I added HK$100 to my account (which gives me a HK$10 bonus).
Submitted transaction online: Tue, Apr 24, 2012 at 9:24 AM
Received text message saying recharge was credited: Wed, Apr 25, 2012 at 4:12 AM
In other words, it took about 19 hours.
Hope this helps!
