SMS Breaking Down

I've been having some trouble sending text messages lately here in Vietnam. At first I assumed my unlocked iPhone was just on the fritz. I spoke with several other people and they've also been having problems sending text messages.

Texting is very popular here in Vietnam. My guess is that the mobile phone infrastructure, like so many other infrastructures in Vietnam, is having trouble keeping up.

This country is very successful in many ways. Dealing with the growth that comes with success, brings its own challenges. Perhaps it's time to take the infrastructure spending up another notch.
