Default Best Sim for a week in Vietnam? - 06-11-2014, 14:10

I'm guessing none of the SIMS I use in the EU are going to get me good rates in Vietnam. I'll be there for one week and in Hong Kong for 12 hours. Recommendations appreciated.


GSM phones: SonyEricsson w580i, Samsung A437, Dell Streak
CDMA/GSM phones: Sprint Samsung Galaxy 5,
SIMS: (live) AT&T GoPhone (USA, Mexico) LIDL (Germany)
(dead) Ortel, solomo pro, Yackie

Maybe you want to play with the new Knowroaming.com solution.
They have 15ct/min to call from vietnam to US, 1 USD/MB data in Vietnam and
11ct/min / 0.2 USD/MB from Hongkong.

piranha mobile has
24ct/min to call from Vietnam and 1.12USD/MB data,
14ct/min to call from Hongkong and 13ct/MB for data.

I was told that vietnamese SIM cards are very cheap and can also be purchased at the arrivals section on the airports.


Germany: o2 blue all-in L, simquadrat
Thailand: truemove (phone+sms+wifi)
International: xxSim+372, toggle +44/+49/+41/+31

If you know someone who would add a line to their acct. on T-Mobile U.S., temporarily for $10/mo. - you would have unlimited text and data and 20./min. calling. Vietnam is one of their 120 "free" roaming countries. I did that for a cousin who went to Europe.


Make use of T-M's UMA/wifi free calling from any place in the world with access to wifi. I use an LG G6, wife an S7)
A/o Oct 20, 2013 no need for intl prepaid as T-Mobile U.S. includes voice roaming at 20/min (in and out)., unlimited text (in and out), and unlimited data in 140+ countries.

My Plan -[6 lines] U.S. T-Mobile unlimited minutes (incoming and outgoing), unlimited text, fast data on each line. that $145/mo. total! . (In U.S. no surcharge for calling a cell.) If a line exceeds 2G of data in a month, pay $10 more for that line. [That only happens a couple times/year.
