All kinds of pre paid SIM cards in HK... and a million shops that sell them... in varying amounts... data available, too, on a prepaid... although the costs are high.

I think Singtel... I definitely recall having a prepaid sim card a few years back that allowed roaming (roaming in Australia, at least)

however, not worth it. Call charges whilst roaming are too expensive

No. You need a Hong Kong phone number to avoid heavy roaming charges while making calls in HK. You should also check international calls costs on each SIM card offering.
