This is something I have had issues with several different countries during my travels. 

This is great information and super helpful. I mean you can buy a sim there but I would advise if possible to just get one ahead of time so you don't have to worry about it as much when you arrive.

I've been to Vietnam twice, and I've used a prepaid sim card both times. The first time I got a sim card on the street in Hanoi and just walked up to someone who looked like they had something to offer, and the second time I went to a shop in Ho Chi Minh City and bought one from them. Both times the sim cards worked great and I had no problems with them.

The best part about using a prepaid sim card is that it's cheap! You can buy your sim card for about $5 USD and then pay for your data as you go using it.

I have a phone I use for my travels that accepts sims from all over the place. That is something you need to make sure. Not all phones accept all regions of sims so it might be worth having a secondary phone for travels.

They should make a traveler's SIM that works in all countries. At this point, it seems silly to have to use a different SIM everytime you travel.
