Does anyone know how to make a reverse charges call from Vietnam to Australia? In my guidebook and on the net it says it's possible but gives no further details. However trying to convince the ladies behind the desk at the local post office that it is possible to make a phone call and make someone else pay for it is another matter entirely. Anyone know?
I have never tried it in Viet Nam but in other countries. Just use a public phone and instead of putting money in you dial the number. You should get connected to the telephone company. Usually there's descriptions of how to do it next to the telephone. about 10 years ago
We usually take the laptop along and connect in to the hotel/guesthouse wireless Internet. If you buy some Skype credit you can call just about anywhere. Australian fixed lines 2cents a minute and 20cents to mobiles. In Ho Chi Min City I could pick from 10 local hotel wireless networks none of which were secured.
I might buy a smaller netbook for my next trip.
