Anyone know if there are shops at the Delhi airport where I can pick up an Airtel SIM card? I was planning on taking an unlocked smartphone with me...I know India doesn't have 3G yet, but does Airtel offer prepaid voice/data SIM cards? Or just voice?

Thanks

Sure! right at the exit you will find the airtel kiosk, or at least it was there the last times i came through Indira Ghandi Airport..You cant miss it, they are very helpful and the sim cards are very easy to get too, better there than in the city where they will ask for proof or adress etc...they are cheap too but i only go voice cards before not sure if they will have data...Good luck!

There is an Aircel shop which is rather prominent as you clear customs on the left side.

300 Rs gets you a SIM with a decent amount preloaded. They deal 99% with foreigners so your passport and additional photo is all that's needed! airtel has presence as well in the airport but i dont recall the location - its around in the same area, slightly to the right IIRC.

The same data card works just fine for data. but its a bit slow. For FAST data, you will need http://www.rcom.co.in/Rcom/personal/..._internet.html or the Tata Photon+ but neither have points of sale in the airport.
SMASH!!!!
