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.
Anyway, when I have mobile package and technical issues with my Cellcard service, I go to the main HQ on Sihanouk, between 51 and 63. I sometimes find out good stuff there and make changes accordingly.
Upon entering the country, I went to Smart, and they wanted to register with my passport ID for a sim.
Last time my lady got me a $1 sim and she didn't have to show any id. It occurred to me to give any bum (or give your tuk tuk driver a few bucks to get you one) on the street a few bucks to get you one, even if they have to show their ID, you are anon, if that's important to you.
The cool thing was, this time I got a $5 scratch card, and it cost $1 a week for 1 GB of fast data and the rest unlimited, which automatically repeated. So that $5 scratch card lasted me more than a month.

Be careful, SMART eats data out in the provinces. $1 gone for 30 minutes of Facebook. $5 card lasted about 2 days. Needed another $5 card to last out the wedding ceremony.
You can type in numbers on you phone to get various plans.
