Default help: Holland - Prepaid KPN sim data optoins? - 28-06-2011, 18:12

I bought a pre paid sim to use in an android phone while in holland ( mainly for the data) on e-bay, however i have received a KPN Prepaid sim with the words
"Handleiding KPN Prepaid" on the package, as opposed to the vodafone sim that i was expecting

I was hoping to use the vodafone smartphone blox option for upto 1GB of data.

what are my options with KPN in Holland with a prepaid sim card with regards to data? im after an unlimited type pay up front for 1GB of data ( or similar) what do KPN offer?

The reason why i bought one from ebay in the UK, is that i will not have any time to visit the airport telecom shop

I attach a screenshot from the KPN website here, too lazy to type. There you see the available day and monthly options, to be booked with the code that is stated in the table.
e.g. the day pack with *133#

If you need more data you can buy the data prepaid SIM including a surf-stick. It cost 20 Euro and has 1 GB included in the starter kit. Without surf-stick you pay 10 Euro for the blank card.

So from the above, the KPN card is pretty much useless for data?

Where can i buy a Dutch prepaid card with 1gb of data? what im really after is this

SIM Only Prepaid - Prepaid SIM Only ? vodafone.nl

But when i get to Holland ( Schipol airport) i wont have time to visit the airport telecom shop, so thats why i need to buy, and get one delivered to the UK.
Tomorrow i will get in touch with the person who sold me the KPN card, unless that will work on the Vodafone network in Holland??

for some reason my reply didnt show up yesterday..

Thanks for the replys, from what you've said then i assume that the KPN card wont be much use for data, that is e-mailing the odd photo+browsing etc unless there is an add on that can be used with that sim to give me a reasonable amount of data.

The deal that i was looking for was the vodfafone 1GB smartphone blox which would have given me 1GB of data to use in a month.

So it looks like i need to get in touch with the seller of the KPN card (it did say vodafone prepaid when i bought it - but i received a KPN card instead )

an interim solution would eb a vodafone UK pay as you go card with data traveller ( 2.00 for 25mb per day) and then see if i can make it to a Dutch phone shop if needed, unless theres another solution??
