Hi Raj, at the moment to my best of knowledge from previous use of Blackberry, there is still no prepaid BIS from China Mobile.

Only last year, they offered on monthly fees- CNY98/month,and only 30MB.

So, best is disable data when roaming on your BB set- set to "NO", and with your subscribed BIS from your own country, connect via WiFI.

Or purchase a china Mobile WiFi card, and once that is set up, load your BB with it and have wiFi on all the time BUT with your mobile network disabled.

A prepaid SIM card in China will cost about $2.80 (say 3.00) then add your desired airtime credit.

At Sanya airport(SYZ), there are few convenience stores, you could check if they are selling prepaid SIM cards....frankly BB/BIS stays disconnected to enjoy Sanya...
