Default Going to Finland - 02-07-2014, 18:22

Next week I will be going to Finland with my wife for a week.
Can anybody give me advice on choosing a prepaid SIM card mainly for data (navigation, Skype and some surfing). We will stay in southern Finland and the handset will probably be mini SIM compatible.

During the above trip I bought a Saunalahti prepaid SIM card.

I am planning a trip to Lapland in December.

Does anybody know if it will be possible to reactivate the line?

Would that be Lappland in Sweden or in Finland?

It's very uncommon to be able to reactivate a dead SIM-card. The numbers must be reused. That goes for both Sweden and Finland (and most other countries).

I've managed to have quite recently expired SIMs reactivated, on some UK networks and also an Omnitel in Lithuania (used August expired November active December) several years ago, but I think after over a year would be fairly unlikely.

Last tuesday I bought a DNA SIM card in Helsinki airport. It cost 5 Euro, with a starting balance of 7 Euro and a "level 2" plan activated, which gives me 3GB data over 3 months, and costs 0.69 Euro every day I use it. The plan also includes free talk time and SMS in Finland, but I have no use fot these.

The problem is that the agent in the R-kioski sold me a 10 Euro top up, but later I found out that it is useless because a "control digit" was not printed on the voucher.
