Where do you recommend english-speaking tourists purchase chinese cellular phone & sim card with established phone number to be used in the two cities & Hong Kong since I am on a travel budget tried to save as much money as possible not buying an expensive smartphone nor iphone nor global-ready phone . I don't want to buy for expensive calling rates per minute when I call in Peking & Shanghai & Hong Kong. Any Suggestions ?

Although I had been to China before, but I do not use the local cellphone, since I just stayed there for a short time. One of my friend used a Chinese SIM Card inserting in his international cell phone. We all think it is not a budget way to buy a new card and cell phone in that country if you just traveling.
But I think you can go to the China Mobile Shop in the airport for asking more detail information. You can find the shops in the terminals easily.
