I am visiting Denmark for 4 months. I will need a mobile tariff with data for my Android phone. I won't be making many calls. Does any of the Danish providers offering a prepaid card with large data quota (at least 500 MB/month)? Or will I have to sign a contract?

I just stumbled upon this post, as I will be studying in Denmark for the next 4 months in a similar situation to both of you. I was just a bit confused about your reply. Did you need to have a Danish social or could you use one from you home country, I am from the US. Thanks!~ – user19058 Aug 5 '14 at 22:34
@JordanEdward if you want to sign for a contract, you need a Danish CPR. But you don't really need a contract, you can just get a prepaid card with mobile data. – prasopes Aug 6 '14 at 13:50

I am in a very similar situation. I am in Denmark for 5 months on a work visa. I arrived on June 1 and went through the annoying phone search too!

Getting a phone with data is difficult without a contract. The only company that does it is Telenor that I could find. Their prices though are about 2-3 times the price of those with a "contract".

To get a "contract" I have had varying replies from suppliers. In general though, they say that you need a CPR number (social security number). I put "contract" in quotes because they said that it is not binding and that I can cancel at anytime without fees. I personally have a 6 month contract with TDC. Everything was reasonably easy to sign up and it has worked well with bills every two months. I pay 99 Danish kroner every month for 2 hours talk and 1Gb of data.

I tried figuring this out from home before coming but got no where. Unfortunately you must go to the store and ask questions to get answers. Let me know if you have other questions!

When you arrive to Denmark and before making any contract with any company just buy SIM card from Lebara for 10 danish kroner it is about 2 us$ that gives you a phone number and a credit for 10 us$. You can use it and recharge it, it is not binding, no contract no headache, after while when you are in the country you can research for monthly contract offers and find the reliable solution. Most of monthly contract require Danish ID number (CPR number) and they are binding for minimum of 6 months.

Price gets down every year OR the same price and you get more content in it.

Example CBB offer mobile internet connection from 49,- danish kroner pr month with 1Gb or 99,- danish kroner for 12 hours talk, 12Gb 4G mobile internet.
