Mobile Network Operators in China

Would like to get a SIM from a Mobile Network Operator in China during my stay there (visiting Beijing, Shanghai and Xi'an). Who has the best coverage and economic call charges. Want to call Sri Lanka from China. Thanks

China Mobile has the best coverage. What kind of phone do you have? If you have an iPhone then it is better to go with China Unicom if you want 3G.

Ask your own CDMA provider. As you know, you cannot obtain local service with your foreign phone, other than through roaming.
