I've picked up an unlocked dualband GSM mobile (900/1800 bands), the Motorola Motofone F3, and am looking for a SIM card for it, since my parents are traveling to VietNam this fall for a couple weeks to see relatives.
It looks like the Vinaphone SIM cards are recommended, but is there a way for me to order them online to be shipped to me in the US? I know that they are everywhere in HCMC, but:
1) My parents aren't very good with this sort of thing, so I want to be able to set up and top up the mobile with the SIM card before they leave so they don't have to worry about it for the duration of the trip
2) I understand that vendors will put the SIM card in for them, but even though I bought the mobile for their convenience, I don't think that they will want to buy a SIM card at all, preferring to seek out payphones (a rarity it seems) instead...because they'd feel that it's "more trouble than it's worth" =(
I don't expect to find a Vinaphone SIM card online for $5 USD, but I feel that the prices I see of around $35-70 USD might be too much for the SIM card.
Please let me know if there's some place I can go to for a reasonably priced Vinafone SIM card (or Mobifone... I shouldn't be picky =P)
Thanks for your time!
