SIM cards in Cambodia

The recommended SIM card is Metfone whose signal covers the widest range, even in remote temples and mountains.
- 1) You may need a passport when you buy a SIM card. It is best to bring a copy of your passport with you. In addition, before the payment, let the store take the test card and put it on the mobile phone to test it, so as to avoid the mobile phone system that is not supported by the mobile phone system.
- 2) If you do not need to use data functions such as GPRS in foreign countries, you must remember to turn it off, and only keep the voice call function, because the cost of international data traffic is really high.
