I'm going to be teaching English in Taiwan for 6 months. Wondering which carrier would be the best, what kind of mobile to get for just talk and text, and how much it would cost? Is it set up in Taipei month to month or more like the US with long contracts? Is it much more expensive to get data? Thanks!
There are a couple providers. I recommend Far East tones. You can buy a burner phon for about $30 usd plus another $5 for a SIM card. Then you can go to 711 and buy mins. $30 of mins will probably last you 2 months. You need to show your passport to get a SIM card. If you already have a phone that uses a SIM card just bring that and buy the SIM card. It will save you $30 for a small burner phone. about 5 years ago
