Can i get phone reception is Vietnam and Cambodia?

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

I’ll be going to Vietnam and Cambodia for a holiday but will i get reception there to use Facebook and also what are the plugs like

I’m an IT consultant and I have witnessed Vietnam’s rapid progression into modern technology.

Just a few years ago, most all Viets went to internet cafe’s to access the internet because computers and Internet access was too expensive and/or not available. Now, Internet cafe’s are few and far in between because most everyone has internet and computers in their homes. Also, wifi is now commonplace in many coffee shops and some restaurants. Wifi is so common in Vietnam that I was able access free wifi hotspots around most of Hoan Kiem Lake in Ha Noi.

Cambodia’s technological advancement is a little behind Vietnam, but not by much.

Depending on who you ask, Vietnam has five or six cell phone services. All but one are GSN based systems (similar to AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S.) and have very good reception in most of the country including the countryside. They all offer data plans for smartphones and phone to computer use. EVN Telecom is the only CDMA based system (similar to Verizon or Sprint) and has the fastest data rate available, but has dropped out of the mobile phone market and offers fixed phone or internet services via wireless in most major cties.

Cambodia is having a cell phone war. Six carriers are currently fighting over a 12% market penetration with three more carriers planning to enter the market very soon. Cambodia cell phone service is very cheap because of the fierce competition.

If your U.S. carrier is AT&T or T-Mobile, you can probably use your phone in Vietnam or Cambodia by using a SIM from a local carrier and unlocking the phone. AT&T is the only U.S. based carrier that offers international roaming, but it’s extremely expensive and doesn’t work in Vietnam.

Electrical plugs in both countries are Asian standard (two round pins). Most new buildings are fitted to accept both Asian standard and the new universal standard (two flat vertical pins). It’s advised to take a plug adapter with you while traveling in that region.

Another person was correct that Vietnam has restricted access to the internet, but that’s easy to get around. Change the DNS that your computer uses to something outside of Vietnam. Here’s a link to Google’s public DNS with instructions on how to change this in your computer:

Should I suicide? I think my death is closing in as time passes?

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

My girlfriend asked if I wanted to go to the Opera with her but I thought she said Oprah so I said yes(she got free tickets somehow). I can’t use any excuses cause I used too many on her so I have no choice but to go. I am bringing food, phone, games, spit straw, slingy and a pillow with me. What other stuff should I bring? Any other tips?

HAHAHAH enjoy man :)

a psp or something like that would help …

how can i convince my parents to let me buy MYSELF an iPhone?

Saturday, January 26th, 2013

I am 18, i work 2 jobs, and i have my own car that I bought myself. My parents refuse to pay for any of the car so i have to do it all myself. Right now, i am still in the process of repaying my parents for the car. I still owe them about $400 for the car and then i have paid them back everything for the car. I also pay for the registration and the insurance as well. Since I have already paid off the insurance and registration for the year and have little left to go on the car itself, i want to use my own money to buy a smartphone and pay for the data plan each month. I have asked my parents about a smartphone and i offered to pay for it each month, and he said "you don’t even pay for your car insurance yet and you still have the car to pay off". i said ok and the conversation kinda ended there. But now, 2 years later, i have paid for all the insurance costs, other car costs, and soon to be the car itself, how could i ask them to allow me to use my money to buy a smartphone? Also, i have a sister that is a sophomore in hs and she doesn’t have a job and its constantly asking for an iPhone and my dad is saying no to her too because of the data plan. my point for bringing up my sister is because she will likely get pissed if i have a iPhone and she doesn’t because she keeps score of everything that i get that she doesn’t. So how could i explain to my parents that she needs to understand that i am paying for it myself and that she will get my old iPod (with the cameras) if i get a new phone. So bottom line is, given that my sister will be jealous, how can i convince them to let me buy a smartphone?

Also, i put a portion of each paycheck in a savings account, a portion to be spent at the movies, restaurants, mall, etc.. and then the last third goes toward the car.
also, please no bullshit answers

and Reben, they are stubborn. that’s the fucking problem.

**i do plan to pay off the car first before getting the phone

you dont need their consent, you can just buy it yourself. you have your own car, you can drive to the store, they dont have to do anything. after you pay for the car, you should celebrate with your new iphone. and you are 18, a smartphone is a very good thing to have. just dont drop it.
and your sister is stupid, if you pay for it yourself i dont know why she would be mad. buy her an ice cream cone if you get the phone.

After all bills is it good to have this much left over?

Saturday, January 26th, 2013

I live in Georgia, and I am in the process of purchasing my first house. After I calculate for all utilities, the mortgage, gas, food, cell phones, cars, Insurance for cars, and savings. I am left with about 500-600 dollars each month. Hopefully i can use this extra money for savings/entertainment purposes. I really just want to know if this is going to be considered struggling.

Yes that is good. Too many people are "house poor", in that they pay way too much for a mortgage then can’t eat or go to a movie. Successful budgeting requires that you pay yourself first, before bills. If there isn’t enough money for your to live comfortably, then reduce your bills. I learned this from an old man that had tons of money, and worked a regular job. He made a payment to his savings account just like a car payment. Took his weekly money first, and THEN started paying bills. That way he didn’t get a frazzled because he couldn’t go out, or have fun.

What would be considered a business plan?

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

I have to make a business plan for a competitive event competing in DECA . I’m supposed to make a business plan. my idea is to make a mobile security company for smartphones would this be considered a business? or are they asking for like a restaurant or bakery repair shop?. My advisers are not being very clear and i just want to know if my idea of a mobile security company would be considered. I think they are asking for a small business but that sound boring..

depending on when it is due, any college biz dept can give you a TEMPLATE,
your state dept of commerce has them, and free templates are available on line.

I taught small biz

you need
name, address, phone
an executive summary; [the highlights of your plan]
history
team make up [if any]
SWOT
resume
competition
financials

luck to you
