With a good variety of cell phone providers in Cambodia, the competition is good and relatively effortless for travelers to buy a sim and pop it into their unlocked cell phones. The Cambodian cell companies are: Cellcard/Mobitel, Metfone, Smart, qb, Beeline, CooTel and Excell. To purchase a SIM card, just bring a passport with a valid visa to the office. At Cellcard, SIMs cost $2 and you’re required to add at least $1 in credit when you purchase one to activate it. In-network calls cost 5 to 7 cents per minute and it’s 8 cents per minute for cross-network calls. International calls cost 20 cents per minute, or as low as 4.5 cents a minute if you dial 177 before the country code. *SOURCE - Move to Cambodia Blog*
