gsm research sim card


i'm considering purchasing  a SIM800 breakout board for a project which uses GSM and requires a sim card for communication.

Is there a sim and data package plan that can be used for research into the communication of the device? i don't want a plan that costs $30 a month when all i may need is 2 or 3 days.

I think the best you'll get would be $20/3GB/7 days. prepaid-mobile-broadband

Hey there PaulCav - you can pick up a Prepaid starter pack at most servos/major supermarkets to use as a mobile broadband device. Hope this helps!

Please be aware that the SIM800 board is 2g Only and that network on Optus will be closing down by August this year.
