You can purchase prepaid SIM card from any phone shop and kiosk from shopping malls. Beware of touts selling prepaid SIM card at the airport which will offer you with ridiculous price. Starter pack cost no more than Rp10,000 and you can buy the top up voucher in many denominations. Rp50,000 is good for a month use.

Select prepaid SIM card from Indosat (IM3 or Mentari) and Telkomsel (Kartu AS) for good network coverage. Visit the website to learn more about international call charges.

for the provider whose has low cost for international call are:


as low as IDR3500 for 5 min to SINGAPORE

using prefix 01016 + country code + area code + phone number

ask the call center for detail (111)

3 telkomsel


as my review for the best quality ( compare with price) use INDOSAT (MENTARI, IM3 or STARONE)
