Mobiles in China – My Personal Perspective

Huge Mobile Subscribers Amount

According to the latest report from the Ministry of Information Industry on Dec 17, 2002, by the end of Nov 2002, the number of mobile subscribers has reached 200.3 million.

Mobile phone subscriber # 200.31 million

Fixed-line telephone subscriber # 212.68 million

Telephone total subscribers # 412.99 million

Internet users # 48.29 million

# of telephone subscribers by the end of Nov 2003, according to Ministry of Information Industry, China

From the begining of 2002, there are about 5 million new mobile subscribers. With this trend going on, the number of mobile subscribers will exceed the one of fixed-line telephone very soon. The number of 200 million subscribers means every 100 persons in China have 14.95 mobiles. This number in big cities like in Shanghai and Beijing is much higher.

My personal perspective

From my personal perspective, there is vivid persons and lives behind these abstract numbers. I bought my mobile five years ago when I was still a student. My girlfriend bought hers 6 years ago. I don’t have any friend who don’t have a mobile in Shanghail now – my estimation is, any well-educated young people in Shanghai have a mobile.

What surprises me a lot is, even the workers decarating my house have their mobiles – the painters, the decorators, the mason, the electricity, and the carpenter. They dressed poorly – they don’t bath for weeks, but they have mobiles. It is amazing!

I do have one friend in Shanghai who only have a pager – a 70-year-old famous professor. Beside him, I don’t know anyone without a mobile phone.

Mayor of WebmasterWorld described his vision for China when he was here in 70’s.

Having spent some time in PRC in the late ’70’s, my vision of the Peoples Republic is still one where there is little electric power or communication infrastructure, except to a limited amount in major cities. It’s still a vision of technology mired in the 1940’s.

It is quite true that in late 70’s, there is almost on communication infrustructure. But now, it has changed greatly.

Impression of my friends in US

Some friends of mine came to Shanghai from Seattle. They are talking about the mobile and communication infrustcture in China excitedly – “Can you imagine it? My mobile phone still gets signals in the mountains that are hours’ car ride from Chengdu!!” I happent o have the pictures of the mountains he described.

When I was travelling in Seattle, I found it insteresting that a lot of people don’t have mobiles. People explained this to me: in the north Americian, the telephone infrusturct has been built very well and you can easily find a telephone anywhere. But in China, to find a telephone on the street is not as easy. So there is a huge demand to get a mobile.

Fee of China Mobile

Here is the fee of China Mobile Communication Corp. (a.k.a CMCC)

Monthly subscription fee: 50 RMB/month

Local call: 0.4 RMB/min

Long distance call: 0.4 RMB/min + 0.07 RMB/6 seconds = 1.1 RMB/min

Answer phone: 0.4 RMB/min

Good way to save money:

Dial 17951 + Long distance number: 0.7 RMB/min

(note: 1 USD = 8.3 RMB)

For me, I use my mobile frequently. For local calls and long distance calls. I get a bill of around 300 RMB every month.

Mobile phones

Mobile phones in China is cheap. For some old-fasioned mobiles, it only costs about 300+ RMB (40 USD?) to get a mobile. It is different than in U.S. Mobile phone and the SIM card are sold seperately. You can buy any mobile you like and choose the NSP (network service provider). Any two can macth. There is a discount to buy a mobile with a SIM card though.

Big mobile phone companies are fighting for bigger market share aggressively. It is clear that Nokia is taking the leading position and Motorola follows. My new mobile is Alcatel OT715.

Network Service Providers

There are three large NSPs in China

  • China Mobile – the largest. I am using China Mobile.
  • China Telecome
  • China Unicom – this is the provider of my girl-friend’s

Actually, I don’t see much difference between the service they provide.

Besides the subscription fee based model, they also have other options, like Prepaid Card.

Pre-paid Card

All the providers offer their pre-paid card. Users of these card don’t have to pay for the monthly subscription fee, don’t have to pay the bill. They just buy a card (with a SIM card and certain amount of fee). There is a mobile phone related to this SIM card. Insert the SIM card into any mobile and you gain instant access to the mobile network.

Before the prepaid amount of money is used out, you can buy “value card”, which is about 50, 100, 200 RMB. Unveil the card number and password, call the provider’s number, key in the card number and password, you gain additional communication time. It is easy. The charge of this card per minute is a little bit higher than the monthly subscription model.

I have a lot of phone calls so I choosed the subscription based. My girl friend don’t use her mobile as frequently, so she bought the prepaid card.

Pre-paid card in action

Here is an example of the Shenzhouxing pre-paid card from China Mobile (CMCC).

shanghai-shenzhouxing-card.jpg

Shenzhouxing card. You can see the SIM card on the left.

Local: 0.6 RMB/min

Domestic long distance: 0.6 RMB/min + 0.07 RMB/6sec

Answer call: 0.6 RMB/min

You can compare the rate with subscription-based rate listed before. Please note: both calling out and answering call are charged, at the same rate.

Signal coverage

Here is the China Mobile Communication Corp. (CMCC) report on signal coverage from ChinaByte on March 10, 2003

In the 36 major cities, avg. coverage = 99.86%

Country-wide highway coverage = 96%

In big cities like Shanghai, the coverage is a big challenge. There are two many tall buildings that weakens the signal. Now, most places are covered, such as in metro tunnel, in most elevators.

    What is the difference between a Quanqiutong prepaid SIM card and a Shenzhouxing prepaid SIM card?

  2. Tarachand

    dear sir ,

    i am intrested in importing china cellular mobile phones please send me list of exporters .

    thanks

  3. Jian Shuo Wang

    Tarachand, thank you for your intesting in this page and your questions. However, I may not offer you my help at this time since I don’t have the bandwidth to check the exporter list for you. It may be more easier for me to help you to specify what you need in. Otherwise, a simple search in Google with “China Mobile Exporter” may be more helpful than I do for you. Just check this: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=china+mobile+exporter

    Please don’t get me wrong. I am willing to help but the question is too broad for me to help you.

    I’m getting a Motorola V66 3-band gsm

    mobile phone in US. I was told that it

    was sim unlocked. Is there any way to

    make sure it is not locked before I

    leave for China? I wonder, if it

    happens to be locked, any one in Shanghai does the unlocking at all.

    By the way, how much does a Motorola V66 cost in Shanghai?

    Thanks.

    Just bought a Mobile phone here and have bought 2 China Mobile sim cards..one with 50 rmb and one with 100 rmb. Why? I am trying to send SMS back home (Australia) and to friends in Turkey. Nobody seems to be getting these SMS but according to my phone they are being sent. Where do they go and why are they not reaching home. Apparently China Mobile does SMS to approx 60 countries!!! What is the trick?

  6. Dave

    I am researching the “terms and conditions” (contracts or agreements) which mobile operators make with their customers. I would like to research China Mobile’s contracts – because they are the biggest mobile company in the world – but … I need to find their English language version!

    I found your online information on China Mobile prices very helpful thank you, and if you could direct me to a URL containing China Mobile’s terms and conditions for supply of mobile services to their consumer and/or business customers this would be great (I have looked at their web site but no luck – at least on the English language version).

    In order to give you an idea of the information I am seeking – here is a typical link to a mobile compamy’s terms and conditions …

    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    Well. I did see some contrats from China Mobile, but there is no online Chinese version. Don’t have too high expectation for websites of local companies, especially for the English version.

  8. Dave

    Thanks for taking the time to look at this, much appreciated.

    For the moment I guess I can review the various Hong Kong operators’ contracts, although they are very small companies compared with China Mobile.

    With best regards

    Dave Bartell

  9. Jian Shuo Wang

    For the agreement, like any other company’s agreement, customer will seldom spend time to read it and it seldom is refered. I hope I can find a copy someday and put the photo copy online.

    Mr Jian

    I have read the comments about the pre paid cards but am still a little confused. I will be arriving in Shanghai shortly and really need to be in touch with Australia using my mobile for international phone calls and sms. Does the prepaid Shenzhouxing sim card enable me to do this? If not what do you recommend as the best option?

  23. Mrs Ramatu Khatib

    PRAISE ALLAH, THE MOST BENEVOLENT.

    I am Mrs Ramatu Khatib,named person from Kuwait. I am married to Late Malam Muhammad Khatib of blessed memory who worked with Kuwait embassy in Sudan for nine years before he died in the year 2000.We were married for eleven years without a child.

    He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.Before his death we were both very devoted muslims.Since his death I too have been sufering from cancer and fibroid problems.

    When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of$10.5 Million (Ten Million Five hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) with an oversea security company.Presently,this money is still with the Security Company.

    Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this

    fund to either a moslem organisation or devoted muslim individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here- in.

    I want this muslim organisation or individual to use this money in all sincererity to fund mosques,orphanages,widows and also propagating the word of ALLAH and to ensure that the society upholds the views

    and beliefs of the holy Quran.

    The holy Quran emphasized so much on ALLAH’S benevolence and this has encouraged me to take this bold step. I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are new Christians converts and I don’t want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused by people I call unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an unholy manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I know that after death I will be

    with ALLAH the most beneficient and the most merciful.

    I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and also the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always. I don’t want them to know about this development.

    With ALLAH all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Security Company. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the original-beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the Muslim community where you reside to always pray for me.

    My happiness is that I lived a life of a true devoted muslim worthy of emulation.Whoever that wants to serve the ALLAH must serve him in truth and in fairness. Please always be prayerful all through your life.Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a Muslim organisation or a devoted muslim for this same purpose.

    Until I hear from you, my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders. May the almighty ALLAH continue to guide and protect you.

    we discovered from his contact employers COTE D’IVOIRE

    National Petroleum corporation that the said man Alhaji Bello,

    died in auto crash along with his entire family.

    On further investigation, I found out that there were no next of king to stand as beneficeary to this effect, including his Bank Deposit paperwork. This sum of

    US$12,000,000.00 is still sitting in the Bank and the

    interest is being rolled over with the principal sum

    at the end of each year, and no one has come to claim this money till date.

    According to the ABIDJAN COTE D’IVOIRE Law, at the

    expiration of 6 years, the money will revert to

    the ownership of the COTE D’IVOIRE Government if

    nobody applies to claim the funds. Consequently, my

    proposal is that I would want you as a foreigner to

    stand in as the next of kin to late Alahaji Ibrahim Bello,and have this fund transfered into your account rather than government properties.

    Further more,,

    1. I would like you to provide me immediately with your

    full names and address as well as your bank statement of account for easy fund transfar

    2 This money will be paid into your account for us to share in the

    ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you.

    There is no risk as all the paper work for this

    transaction will be fowarded to you such as certificate of deposite which were issued to late Alhaji I B Bello when he deposited the money to the bank.

    Still also my position as a staff of this department, guarantees the

    successful execution of this deal.

    If you are interested, please reply immediately.

    Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more

    details and relevant documents that will help you

    understand the deal very well. Please observe ultimost

    confidentiality, and rest assured that this

    transaction would be more profitable for both of us

    because I shall require your assistance in due cause on the basis of investiment

    depending on your sincerety and maturity in handling such a key matter

    Awaiting your urgent reply .

    Best regards,

The bank involves in disbursement of funds to finance United Nation projects and common wealth development projects in Africa.In the course of my duty, I discovered the total sum of USD $18,500,000 (Eighteen million ,Five hundred thousand dollars) in cash deposited by Mr Ray Collins a sole Proprietor of multy link investiment plc, after he had completed a contract awarded to him in Febuary 2000.

    Obviously it took my timely intervention to observe that Mr. Ray Collins died on a ghasy accident with his family very partetic. I also observed that late Mr. Ray Collins carried out this contract on personal LPO award and contract agreement basis. Even till this moment, nobody has come to claim this fund as benefficeary or next of kin because such person were not mentioned by Mr Collins. And if no body comes for it till next year, it will be retrieve and send to Federal Government account as usual here in Côte d´Ivoire after six years.

    As it stands now I have the fund deposite certificate and other relevant documents which I will send to you before the transaction.

    The area of assistance required of you is to stand as the Beneficiary or next of kin as well as a foreigne partiner to late Mr. Ray Collins so that the fund can be retrieved for onward transfer to your designated bank account overseas. I shall provide you with detailed information on how to execute this transaction upon receipt of your reply.You will be entitle to 30% of the total fund, 60% for myself and 10% for reimbursement for expenses incurred after a successful transaction. Be rest assured that there is no risk involved. I shall requir your assistance in time to come on the basis of investiment in your country depending on your confidentiality and sincirety in handling such a key matter.

    Contact me through the Email address immediately and after which I shall give you my phone and fax number because of the confidentiality required. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks and God bless you.

    Hello,

    I saw a posting somewhere in your website about:

    MOTOROLA V70 -$30 V66 -$25 V50 -$25 V60g -$30 T190/191-$15 V600 -$110 V300 -$80

    A835 -$110 G70 -$50 V60t -$30 V70G -$35 T7201i-$65 V3 RAZR-$150 V220 -$90 … Can you please give me some company info. to contact. I would like to purchase some phones from China. I went thru your site, but unable to find it. Please assist.

    Thank you.

  58. Mr Vampire

    My experience of SMS messages between China, is they arrive garbled – if they even arrive. Internally, it should be fine I would have thought. Although I read somewhere that you cant assume all phones receive txt messages, as it depends on their subscription. Ive tried sending standard english as well as chinese chars from my chinese phone, but both never arrive intact. I have my suspicions the message is being routed along a piece of wet string somewhere along the way, but thats just be being a cynic!

    Anyway, Im guessing that with mobile phones being so popular, buying the cards should be straight forward right? I think id go into a shop, whip out my phone point to it and ask “ni yau mei yau dian hua simm caad” – or is my broken chinese unintelligible?

    I use a two-way radio at home in USA. There is no licensing restriction to use my FRS (Family Radio Service) low-power, short-range two-way radios. Does anyone know if it is permissible to use these FRS radios (462 mHz frequency band) in China? Is any license required to use such a radio in China?
