China Summer Camp | Phones and Internet
If you stay in Shanghai or Beijing for a short time, there is no need to get a local SIM card and number though it helps save a bit. Plus, there is a phone in each dorm room that your families and friends can call in the evening. If you do need one, there are plenty of Shanghai telecom stores in the vicinity and we will be happy to assist you once you land in Shanghai.

If you got a SIM card from elsewhere in China, for example, Guangzhou quite a while ago and it has run out of money, dont bother to go to the telecom store to charge, it wont work. You need to be in Guangzhou to charge it. You can only charge for a local SIM card at the telecom store, but it is possible to charge it online if you have a Chinese bank card or an alipay account.

Internet access is everywhere in the city. In our school, there are computers you may use for checking the news, and emails free of charge (time is limited so that everyone has the chance to use the computer). There is a free wireless connection in the entire building too. In each dorm room and host family, there is either cable internet or wi-fi. Mature students can bring along laptops. You need to set up VPN on your computer or smartphone if you want to access certain websites and apps such as YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.
