Weird cellphone question
« on: April 06, 2012, 08:04:28 am »
I signed a 1 year cellphone contract last year, but I'm staying an extra year.  I went to the cellphone store, because I want a new cellphone (galaxy nexus) and contract.  The lady there told me I didn't need a new contract and the new cellphone would only cost 10,000 extra won a month for the year.  This seems a bit weird/ scammy.  This phone retails for around 4-500$.  Is this normal?

Maybe she's assuming that you will buy the phone outright, up-front, and then your monthly service plan would increase by 10,000/month

I would guess... you don't need a new contract, but your current one will likely extend.
Smartphones are commonly only about 10,000 won a month for the hardware with a 2 year plan :)
