Cell Phone Questions

Hi everyone.

So I'm planning on buying a smartphone from SK wireless. My budget is around 500,000W. I have an E-2 visa, so I can't pay the smartphone off every month. I have to buy the phone all at once.

My questions: What is the best phone I can get right now at a 500,000W budget? How would it compare to a Galaxy S 2 at 845,000W?

I have looked at olleh and LG, but LG wants a 200,000W deposit, and olleh does not give E-2 foreigners cell phones.

Best regards,

Harrison

More information:

I plan on being here for 2 years, so contracts don't bother me.

Compatibility with American cell phone networks is a huge plus. But it's not essential.

Re: Cell Phone Questions

Hi Harrisonp,

Thanks for posting your situation.  You probably already have a phone now, but this message is for you and anyone else who may be interested in getting a cellphone in Korea.

 

SK Telecom’s change in policy last year was a step in the right direction for foreign residents who have previously paid more or received less than the options available to Korean citizens.  Now foreign residents, including E-2 visa holders, can get a 24-month unlocked iphone contract during their time in Korea.


For more information check out our new website, dedicated to serving the foreign community. 

There are few other places that deal directly with customers all in English, so give us a try!
