How difficult is getting a local SIM card in Egypt for a tourist?

Getting a local sim card in Egypt is quite easy as there are two service providers (Egypt Vodafone and Mobinil) that offer a Tourist Line for just 60 LE (INR 540, approx). You can get an Egyptian number which will enable you to make phone calls (national as well international).

Ok..I Just bought a SIM card today. Service provider is Etisalat. It was very easy to get a SIM card. I went to the shop and asked for a new SIM..The guy gave me without asking for any identity proof and there was no activation time. It was already active. It was a new one only and cost me 8 LE. It is not only the case of Etisalat. I also tried to purchase a Vodafone SIM from another shop and he agreed to provide me. However, I didn't buy Vodafone due higher tariff charges.
