iPhones in Saigon

I'm the owner of a spanking new iPhone. Gotta love a market economy! (Thanks for the tip, Kevin.)

If you're in Ho Chi Minh City and looking for an iPhone that will work with the local carriers, drop by Tin Tuc Dien Thoi at 683 Tien Thanh in Quan 10. They have hardware unlocked phones, including TurboSIM hacks. The scary thing about TurboSIM is that they have to slice off the corner of your SIM card. Ok, maybe this is a drawback to the prepaid plans. I believe that if you hose your SIM you loose your funds.

They claim that they may be able to fix my poor dropped iPhone in the meantime. I'm going to drop it off and see what they can do. If they can fix it, the wife will have a nice new toy as well.
