How to setup 3g mobile data access with vinaphone in vietnam

      10
I purchased 2 Vinaphone SIM cards in DaNang for 200,000vnd each. I installed them and made two calls to kiểm tra they were working but I found texts were blocked when I tried to text Australia, và 3 days later I notice both phones have no service and won't connect to a network. I've switched phones, adjusted settings, và looked up Vinaphone's website for solutions. No luck. Can anyone offer an explanation & solution to lớn get a network connection?

Have you looked khổng lồ see how much credit is left on them? Did you buy them from a street vendor or a retail outlet for phones computers etc. The latter would be the best place to ask for help.

Thanks Ross. I can't check credit because the phone won't connect. I tried on the Vinaphone trang web but I can only see recharge option. You would think even with no credit the sim card should connect khổng lồ the phone network. I purchased the cards from a local Kmart convenience store who installed them in the phones. Can't go back I'm in Hoi An now.


« So what is a visitor to vì in 2017?

You can still buy a SIM card at a corner store or at the airport. But have in mind that they are not properly registered. Even at airport booths, they still sell them without the legal registration. When you ask for it, they will smile or find an excuse or simply lie lớn you.

A traveller visiting the country for only a few days may bởi vì fine without registration. You only risk that your SIM will be shut off anytime without prior warning. This has been reported after 4 days already. Lớn avoid losing your credit và allowances in this case, you'll need to go khổng lồ a registration point in an official store and re-register your SIM on your name by showing your passport as required by law.

If you continously need smartphone data, travel through the countryside where there are no registration points and/or stay for longer, it's now very much recommended lớn go the legal way by buying and registering your SIM card in a major store of an operator.»

Try Vinaphone store 06 trần Hưng Đạo, sơn Phong, Hội An, Quảng Nam, Vietnam.

But I am not sure about this one.

You will definitely find legitimate shops for

Viettel

210 Ly Thuong Kiet

and

Mobifone

566 hai Bà Trưng

here.

Thanks worldcitizan1962. I visited the Vinaphone office. It took a while but we managed to lớn get new sim cards và numbers. Apparently the sim cards we we sold were cancelled. Maybe a dodge seller. I would have thought buying from a corner well know convenience you'd be OK. Advice:dont pay 200000 vnd for a sim thẻ you can't use

The sellers at the airport at least in Danang are not official salespoints for the companies.

Ask them wether they will register your thẻ ;if they tell you that it is not necessary..., don't buy.

Best to lớn stick khổng lồ the official shops which you will find in every major city.

Check the trang web of the tele companies for adresses.

Regarding Hoi An, see above.
