    I went to Vietnam last summer and used a Vinaphone sim card fo my iPhone 4s during my trip. When I came back to the US, I took it out and put it in a small pouch. Now in 2 weeks, I'm going to be heading back to Vietnam again for vacation and I was wondering......could I use that same sim card again on my phone?

    I've had Sim cards that stayed active for a full year (or more), and others that died in 6 months, probably depends on the service provider. I usually get Mobi, have not had good experience with Vinaphone. By all means take it and see if it works, be sure to top it up as soon you arrive to keep it alive.

    Is that so? How long would Vinaphone last?

    @yeahokaysuu-re: If your card is still have money, it alive for 1 years. Maybe, when you come to Vietnam, you can buy another simcard. It's so easy and so cheap.
