Cell Phone in South Korea

Jump to last reply

I've tried searching, but really can't find a definitive answer. I'm one of the Europe forum guys, but Korea is all new to me.

My daughter, who is in the Army, will be stationed in South Korea for the next 3 years. She has an unlocked Droid Incredible 2 (CDMA/GSM Quad Band, 3G-wireless) smartphone. Originally, she was to be stationed in Germany, but they just changed her orders this week.

So, from what little I am finding by searching the web it seems that South Korea may be on a different planet than most of the rest of the world as far as cell phones go (or I'm an idiot, which is most probable).

So, can someone please help on this? Is Korea like most of the rest of the world now, where GSM is standard and a person just buys a SIM card, or is it CDMA or something else? All I've found on the internet is things saying that South Korea is different than almost everywhere else, which I found hard to believe in such a technically advanced country.

Does anyone have a preferred provider? Since she will be there for so long, I assume it may be best to do some kind of contract. Verizon (her present carrier in the States) will be suspending her present contract until she returns (they do that for the military).

Thank you so much in advance!

Dave
