A few days ago I've moved to Shanghai and, since using a Beijing phone number in Shanghai is expensive, I decided to get a new phone number. I've decided to go with China Unicom, because their 3G standard is the same as the rest of the world's, so now I finally have 3G! (Although, youtube is still blocked, but at least Android 2.1 supports VPN now.)
To get my new Shanghai phone number, add 3410941632 to my old phone number
whats up!? just came across your place.. i have china mobile and i live in beijing.. my chinese is quite bad and i am not getting it. I got a 2.1 android cell and i cant get it to work properly with internet. i heard cuz china mobile dont have 3g, so im guessing the rare occasions it kind of worked out was gprs WAP internet? did you set up your android by your self? perhaps its because i set it up wrong.. but im even thinking about changing to china unicom since i heard it works better.. please some advice would be great!! lol! take care enjoy shanghai!
Hi Jose! Yes, I think I know the problem, I've experienced it myself and have had to explain it to many friends as well. I've decided to write a post about it: http://lunesu.com/index.php?/archives/115-China-Mobile-SIMs-explained.html
