We had an issue a few days ago where we were told that we couldn't get a SIM-Card in the Beeline store we were in. They told us to go to the main store in town. We then visited a Ucell store which would sell us SIM cards. It took them a while to copy the data from our passports and they insisted on seeing our registration slips from the hotel.

Yep, it seems you have to go to one of the big stores to get a SIM. I went to Ucell who were very thorough in checking who I was, visas etc. So it was a bit time consuming, but the staff were pleasant.

Note: my purely data SIM stopped working after a couple of weeks, because I apparently needed to top up with general credit (for calls I'd never need) in order to keep it working. So I suggest checking that when you buy your SIM.

Hi,
I got my SIM in Nukus 2 days sgo by the beeline store (https://goo.gl/maps/5suFs75z21D2 ) close to the museum. I needed just 30 minutes, my passport and 31.000 some for the welcome tariff.
There is another company (I don't remember the name) with a tourist plan for a month for 42.000 son or so
