SIM card for cell phone. Suggestions?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Yes you can. I forget the details, but I've heard of several people doing it.

I think they get you to verify the last few calls you made and/or received.

You can buy a SIM card wherever you can buy water. Seriously.

But if you feel really awkward approaching an unrecommended shop (I can't believe I'm saying this . . .), there's one on 51, where I have bought many top-up cards etc. It's on the river (east) side of 51, between 172 and 174. It has a glass case outside, internet inside, sells coke and cigs.

Can you tell me where any Metfone stores are located?

As others have stated you can buy a sim pretty much anyplace. If you want an official store there is SMART inside Sorya shopping center Or you can check the Metphone store locator here:

Personally I think Metphone is good except for the annoying spam (daily text, and one or two voice recorded calls per week)
