Hello all. I'm going to be spending the next 3 months in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil for a study abroad program and I want to be prepared as possible.
Once I touch down at the airport in Rio I want to be able to communicate with family back home (in the USA) as well as classmates that will already be in Rio, so I'm looking into how to get a sim card to do so. Would rather get the card now and shipped to me so that I can have it handy rather than searching with my bags in tow to find a place to purchase in the airport or nearby in RIO.
I have heard of TIM but it appears their sim cards are out of stock on the website www.telestial.com/view_product.php…
Is there any other website where I can purchase a TIM prepaid sim card? They also don't mention anything about having data on their cards, which I think will be necessary for me as a student, so I am also interested in other carriers that are better about that.
