Thanks

What about registration of the SIM card?
I read in one of the providers that this is required.
How complicated is the whole purchase, activation and registration process going to be?

I'm aware of this option and was planning to contact them as soon as I arrive in AK.
I'll need mostly data, we'll use our regular phones/plans for the few calls we'll make.

I'll read the details there in a few days.

But in the meantime - does this SIM have an expiry date, as all prepaid SIMs have?
In this case it's no use to me.
