Yes, but you'll have to have an unlocked phone that is GSM 900 network compatible. Advice I've heard is, don't buy SIM cards from Viettel, as lots of people have had problems with them, reloading, etc. There are a couple of other providers in VN and cards are sold all over the place.
When I was in Vietnam I bought a Mobifone SIM card. Worked fine and whats more, when you buy one you get lots of credit. Note however that you are best to buy a SIM card away from the touristy district 1 in HCMC as people sell them at inflated prices. In many places, Can Tho say, you can buy a SIM card for around 50000VND. Not bad at all especially since it usually comes with about 100000 or 1500000 dong of credit!
