Has anyone had experience buying a cheap cell phone for use in VN and SR? Our low end American phones don't have the service needed in Vietnam and then there is this "unlocking" issue which I don't fully understand, but could be a problem. One suggestion is to buy one when we arrive in Hanoi and re-sell in HCMC, or just bring it home for possible future use in other parts of the world.
Has anyone done this and then just emailed friends and family the number to call in case of emergency?
We only want it to keep in touch with guides/hotels in Vietnam and for emergency use for calls to/from U.S.
Will the same phone work in Vietnam and Siem Reap?
Many thanks...as i don't want to spend precious holiday time dealing with this!
