So what do you pay to call Cambo from OS?

It depends on what country you're calling from. From Laos and Vietnam, it is $0.15/minute. From other Asian countries, it is $2.50/minute. From the rest of the world, it is between $4.00 and $4.50. I just use a calling card or VOIP in those cases. The main thing is that you can consistently receive calls and send/receive SMSes. The last time I tried traveling with Mobitel (about two years ago), some of the SMSes I sent took up to a month to reach the recipient.

yeah, I got 2 sims cellcard and metfone.
If a company in the west were spamming like metfone is, they'd have 0 customers in a few months.

Hi, which line has the best internet coverage all over Cambodia? Smart seems to be the best being so cheap and all. Won't be calling around a lot so 3G is the most important for me.

A big thumbs up to Mobitel Cellcard from me. I started off with Metfone, but gave up after a week, having had all sorts of issues with the sim card in my iphone.

No problems at all with Mobitel. Cheap international calls using their 177 prefix . . . around 6cents a minute to key places like US, Thailand, HK, Singapore etc and the 3G is excellent

Best package is $5 for 2gb lasting a month. Best thing about that is that if there is balance left on your data and you auto-renew the subscription monthly, then the new months 2gb is added to whatever is left over. Useful for tethering to you laptop if you're out and about and need wifi connection.
