soak them in cold water until they are soft. it usually takes about 4 hours. (just do it over night) If youre adding them to a pan make sure the heat is not too high. do both of these things and your rice noodles should never stick.

I just boil them until they are just right or slightly underdone, then instantly rinse them in cold water. They never stick that way for me.

this. we cook it just like typical pasta. We use rice noodles for spaghetti, etc. We don't eat gluten so any pasta we use is rice based. Maybe the noodles you mean are different from what we use, but it's essentially the same. boil in water for X minutes until done "al dente" :)

You know to make fried rice, you're supposed to use cooked rice that are one day old? So they don't stick together when you fry them? You do the same thing with rice noodles. One day old rice/rice noodles has less moisture, so they don't stick to each other.
