Can't get a mobile plan anymore?

So I spend 4-6 months a year here and always get a mobile plan for that time and cancel it when I leave.

But I went to activate my line today and was told that you now have to have a DNI to get a monthly plan. Is this right is there no other option then getting a pay as you go sim?
They have good coverage and good 4g. Just came back from 1 week in Tigre on an island...4g was spotty on the island, but in Tigre it was good. Order sim card from their web site. I have used them for two years with no complaints.

My experience with Tuenti was not so good. It is a budget brand of Movistar. When you are trying to connect to towers, Tuenti clients have lower priority than normal Movistar clients. I work in downtown. If I said that I wanted 4G, Tuenti always connected to a tower in Belgrano and Internet was basically unusable. If I set it to be 2G, then phone connects to a closest Movistar tower, but for calls only.

Prepaid Claro has 2Gb/10 days for 110 pesos add-on plan. Just in case if you can consider using Whatsapp or Skype for most of your calls.

thanks for the advice guys. I think Ill just get my girlfriend to get me a plan in her name, as all the family is on movistar so need it for the calling between phones. Cheers
I know when I visited in October I could not activate my Claro sim that I bought . I stopped in the Movistar office as well and they told me you need a DNI.
