With Pay As You Go phones you only pay for the minutes you use. There are no contracts, call plans, or monthly bills. As you talk, money is deducted from your prepaid account, which can be refilled by purchasing more minutes from the carrier directly, or by purchasing cards that refresh your minutes. Here's how to get a Pay As You Go phone:
1. Choose a phone from one of our Pay As You Go Carriers: China Mobile, China Unicom or China Telecom. All phones come with instructions for activating your phone and setting up your new phone number. Some phones also come with an allotment of prepaid minutes that you can activate as soon as you get your phone. Information about the number of minutes included is available on the phone's product page.
2. When you're ready to purchase minutes for your phone, browse the prepaid minutes cards available from each of our carriers: China Mobile, China Unicom or China Telecom. Instructions for refreshing your minutes are included with the cards.
