What are the requirements to obtain a pre-paid micro-SIM in Jakarta, Indonesia (passport, cost, etc)?
What are the recommendations for where to obtain a micro-SIM (7-11, cellular company store)?
Fortunately, Indonesia is not India. Here's how to do it:
Walk outside your hotel, pick up a rock, throw it. It will land on a shopping mall, convenience store, corner shop, wartel or guy squatting on the pavement festooned with colorful signs for Indosat (IM3), Telkomsel (simPATI) or XL Axiata. Hand over around Rp 10,000 ($1), preferably while showing them your phone and its SIM card slot to make sure they give you the right size. Enjoy your shiny new microSIM!
