You can buy an Indonesian SIM card that will give you internet access through your phone
To get your phone connected to the internet in Bali, you need to buy an Indonesian SIM card. Telkomsel or XL are the best brand to go with for Bali. You can bought SIM card at the airport in Bali – when you walk out of the international terminal, there’s a few small kiosks selling snacks etc. One of them also advertises SIM cards and credit top-ups. Asked the guy there for a SIM card, and then also asked him if he could activate the GPRS service. This is the crucial bit to get the internet connectivity. The GPRS is activated through sending a couple of SMSs — but it’s hard to do it yourself because the instructions and texts are all written in Bahasa Indonesian.
