    Default prepaid mobile card finland

    hi, i will be next month in helsinki, and need mobile internet connection.

    can you tell me where can I buy it?

    i found this page PrePaidGSM: Finland
    and there are few adepts, but links are only in finnish

    Saunalahti Oy (by Elisa)
    TeleFinland (by Sonera)

    those two are my favourites for now, can you tell me if thoce cards are still available? or any other which can I use?

    thank you

    you´e right, not that big differences in long term using.

    but i need that card only for 2 weeks, in that case /if that page is true, because on pages of finnish operators there is no english and i´m not able find appropriate info there/ is big difference that your DNA have Activation Fee/Credit included:€ 17.00/10.00, Saunalahti have € 6.90/6.00 and TeleFinland have € 9.90/11.00 :-)

    big help will be maybe adresses of operator shops in helsinki, i´m sure that there is biiiig chance talk with someone who understand english :-)

    or maybe links to price lists of finnish mobile operators :-)

    thank you in advance if anyone help me with this.

    p.s. i know about roaming, but this way is toooooooooooooo cheaper than use it :-)

    Those shops are everywhere in the city. DNA e.g. in the shopping center Kamppi (is one metro station away from the central station).

    Here are some prices for mobile phones from DNA:

    From Elisa I think it is this one:

    You can buy pre-paid phone cards at any R-kioski. You should wait until you get here to see what kind of deals they have. I once got a card for 6 euro and it came with 10 euro talk time as long as I went and registered online. Sometimes you can get even better deals than that. I have Saunalahti and I'm happy with it. Only problem I've found with it is that I can't use it outside of Finland, not even in Ahvenanmaa.
    Follow your bliss!!!

    Do you mean a prepaid for calling or for the mobile internet? I thought you meant the internet.

    Well, just a week ago Saunalahti released the first prepaid mobile internet in Finland. (Link) I guess it's available for tourists, too.

    On the page they say:

    The package contains a USB Modem (Huawei E160E (I have the same, works well with my macbook)) and a Saunalahti Prepaid starting package.
    You get an activation code, you activate it* and then you can use internet for one month without speed or transfer limits.
    The package costs 79€ (The worth of the Modem is 120€)
    After one month using the internet will cost 1.50€ per Mb, but you can pay for extra time of unlimited internet for 6.90€ per week.
    All you have to do is to find an Elisa shopit (there is one in Kamppi too)

    (I hope this made sense...)

    practicly for two week you can buy a Saunalahti prpaid SIM which is very cheap . and also if you have you laptob there is many places in Helsinki or other cities that had free Wireless servises and also lots of public Libraries . and as you are coming for two week , so you might be in hotel which is difintly there is a free Net . and all depend on your situation and on the aplication that you want to use through the net .
    at end you need to be here then you gonna see how is it .
