Copenhagen SIM Card

I made a repeat visit to the Telia outlet in Copenhagen Central Station to pick up a SIM card for my time in the Copenhagen. I’ve updated the page with details about how to do this. I’m amazed again how easy this is: no identification required, just pay 99 DKK and you’re out the door, slip in the SIM card and you’ve got a Copenhagen number.

I’m sure there are places other than Telia where you can do this, but it seems all the electronics and mobile shop outlets otherwise have no concept of what a “pre-paid SIM” is, or aren’t in a position to sell one.

Yes, data right out of the box — no config needed.

this year it’s cbb thats available but data is costly.. you might get a global data roaming sim http::// but local sims are also cheap.

Could you repost the ‘details on how to do this’ link? The page is dead at the moment but I’m very interested to find out how to do this. Thanks!
