Cell phone stores are found almost everywhere. Your cell phone from home can be used in China if it is unlocked, tri-band or quad-band and able to accepts SIM cards.
Each SIM card comes with a variation of minutes. Be sure to ask the store representative about the different plans at your time of purchase.
