Default Prepaid with data - which provider - 11-06-2013, 15:31

Hello,

I am looking to buy a prepaid SIM-card that can have a data pack added, to last for a few days while visiting Berlin.

Are there any providers that won't allow a foreigner to register the SIM-card and top-up (i.e., you need a German credit card or bank account)? I will have a German address I can put on the registration form.

I am thinking I should be good with 1 GB of data. Which option would I have for this?

Thanks for any advice.

Pick a SIM card package from the next Aldi store (food chain). Store locator: Aldi Süd (south branch), Aldi Nord (north branch). Chose between a 2GB rate (19.99 EUR), a 300MB (7.99 EUR) rate and a day flat rate (1.99 EUR).

A bit old, this thread, but...

From reading PrepaidGSM's page on german operators, it seems that you would need a German ID card in order to register the SIM card. Does that still apply?

Update: From reading Aldi's FAQ, I guess not...

I would not recommend Aldi Talk as they use the eplus network, which is by far the worst in Germany. Given that you can provide a German address, I would rather buy a Lidl SIM card which is based on the much faster O2 network.
For details about Lidl see LIDL mobile - Prepaid Wireless Internet Access


terminals: Samsung: Galaxy S5 DuoS (G900FD); BLU: Win HD LTE; Nokia: 1200; Asus: Fonepad 7 ME372CG; Huawei data: E3372, Vodafone R201, K3765, E1762;
postpaid: O2 on Business XL; prepaid: DE: Aldi Talk, Lidl; UK: 3; BG: MTel, vivacom; RU: MTS; RS: MTS; UAE: du Tourist SIM; INT'L: toggle mobile
VoIP: sipgate.de (German DID); sipgate.co.uk (British DID); ukddi.com (British DID); sipcall.ch (Swiss DID); megafon.bg (Bulgarian DID); InterVoip.com
