Hello there, I have heard that it is easy to get a pay as you go sim card in Thailand but I would like to know were they sell them and also can I use them in Laos or will I have to buy another sim card there? Thankyou in advance for any answers.
You can buy SIMs and credit easily at any 7/11, Family Mart or similar store. It's usually a couple of bucks for the SIM and only slightly more for the credit. I sincerely doubt you'll be able to use a Thai SIM in Laos, unless you're very close to the border and pick up a signal from a Thai tower. I always keep a toothpick in my wallet for popping open the SIM hatch and making the ol' switcheroo on my iPhone when crossing the border to Malaysia.
It's not so hard to juggle SIMs - but it would be cool to have one of those phones that houses two at once. Seem to be popular in Thailand where most people have at least two phone numbers.
you can easily find it at seven eleven shop or you can even get it at the airport.... You can use them in Laos if there is enough signal otherwise you will have to open it for roaming system. It would be better for you to get 2 sim cards though

2 sims is indeed the best.
I always use Dtac in thailand and Tigo in Laos.
Cheap anyway so just switch sim's.
the Thai Dtac works in Vientianne, Pakse and Si Phan Don in Laos but If you need to call back to thailand with that sim, it's cheaper to call with a Lao sim to thailand.
Tigo sim's in Laos are available at almost every shop, just look around for "Tigo" signs and you're good.
