1. Re: 3 G sim card

Hi and welcome to the forum..

Im afraid there is no prepaid SIM card with unlimited access on internet.

So far... visitors have options either rent a phone or rent a sim card upon arrival at Gimpo or Incheon Airport. And you could buy data allowance for around 5,000won/ day from KT if you rent an iPhone.

For phone rentals :


There is Korea Pre-paid SIM card that you can use if you have an unlocked 3G phone. If i'm not wrong it's the only prepaid SIM card that you can easily purchase in Korea. I have no idea how the service charges but you can use the card from Korea to Overseas or from Overseas to Korea (both way service).


Good Luck !!

Pls check the above link for rent phone company.. There are SK, KT and S Roaming. You can make reservation from visitkorea website to enjoy discount rental rates.

I don't think many people on a travel forum will even know what APN is, I'm afraid. It is a little specialised- most people here would like to know much less sophisticated info.

I have no idea where or even if you can find KT's APN detail, I'm afraid
