I think you can get information on POO from the other posts. Here's a hidden gem.
There is a wet market and mini marts nearby which sells stuff in INR (Ruppiah), where you pay what the locals do, instead of jacked up SGD prices.
Walk out from the main entrance of Pasar Oleh Oleh (POO), turn right and turn right again at the junction. Keep walking straight and you will find the place. The locals will tell you where it is if you know about it. I think its called the "Pujasera".
Anyway you can get a sim card at this place. For chinese speaking travellers the shop right at the end is run by a Chinese, so you can communicate better if you do not speak Bahasa Indonesia. Get the 1 Week package for 200MB just for a low price of INR13,000. Ask them to help you activate the sim. Note that they only have a micro sim cutter and not a nano sim cutter yet so you might have to trim it down to size, if you are using the iPhone 5 or 5s. Stock up your crackers, bottled water, chocolates and ice-creams here too!
