Hey guys.

 

We are off to South Africa in 2 weeks, I have a 17 hour stopover in Hong Kong.

 

I intend on buying a local simpack in South Africa, but it's not worth buying a sim card if you're in Hong Kong for just 17 hours.

 

What are the roaming settings for Hong Kong,  mainly what network is used?

 

For example, I heavily used my Telecom Sim in Australia (Mainly for data), and upon landing in Sydney, the first time I had to force my phone to connect to the Telstra network, for it to work, (Was fine after that)

 

Since I've been to Australia before, I had no problem telling it what network to connect to, however this is my first time in Hong Kong, and I have no clue.

 

 

 

Would someone be able to answer for me?

 

 

 

Thanks

You should only ever leave your phone on auto. Roaming steering will automatically select the network for you.
