How to get a SIM Card in Brazil, Mexico, America and South Africa

However further afield, it becomes more financially sensible to buy a local sim card if I am travelling to a location for more than two weeks.

TIM is one the the most helpful phone providers in Brazil. They were the only provider willing to provide us with SIM cards without the Brazilian ID number (aka CPF).
