Adding minutes to prepaid cell phone?
« on: September 08, 2011, 12:18:52 pm »
OK, so I was given a prepaid cell phone by my recruiter when I arrived in Korea but I've run out of minutes on my phone. I'm still waiting for my ARC to come through so getting a contract phone is out of question for the time being.

I've been told that it's possible for me to add minutes to my cell phone but I have no idea how. Can anyone fill me in? I'm meant to meet someone tomorrow night so I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me out. Thanks.

Which company is it with?

For SKT, you just go into an SKT store (I think they're "Show" stores but it says SKT on them) and ask them to recharge with the amount you'd like to add in credit.  They type in your number and it takes about 5 minutes.  A friend of mine is with another company and she does exactly the same thing.

Wow, thanks a lot, I really wasn't expecting such a quick response. I'm with SKT and they have a store right by my apartment, I'll swing by later on this evening and get it sorted.

I salute you!

Just say "charge" and the amount. They'll understand that.
