Temporary SIM card
« on: May 16, 2014, 02:10:20 am »
So, my friend is visiting Korea next week and I was wondering if there's somewhere I would be able to get ahold of a temporary SIM card that he could use while he's here. Preferably one that would also give access to 3G/4G as well, without being to complicated to set up.
Does anyone know about this or have some experience with it?
Thanks in advance!

If you have a contract with one of the phone companies here in Korea, you can get a pay as you go sim for him under your name (legally you are allowed one contract and one payasyougo line in Korea), as I don't think he will be able to, top it up with $10 (sim costs around $9/10 too) and bobs your uncle. I recently did this for one of my friends that visited too, you can get internet on it but only 3G no 4. Hope this helps :)

Oh and try to go into an official store too, as if you go into a third party store they will most likely turn you away and say its impossible  :rolleyes: as they would rather sell a nice new contract.
