Using Cellphone in Korea(2019 ver).

If you want to use a mobile cellphone at the same rate as Koreans, then come to HACKINSA here.

In order to use mobile Cellphone in Korea, you have to contract with Korean telecommunication companies in any way.

1. If you are traveling, you can use prepayment USIM (prepaid USIM). There is no contract.




Short term pre-payment, mostly pre-paid with data only available.
It is quite expensive to get a number that is available in Korea ($ 20 / month)

2. If you stay in Korea, You should contract with one of the three representative telecommunication companies in Korea. (SK Telecom, KT, and LGU Plus.)

You will get a legal subsidy on your newest mobile Cellphone for a two or three year contract.
Most Koreans and foreigners who stay in Korea use their mobile phones in this form.

Advantage:  2 or 3 year contract with the carrier
You can buy the latest cell phones a little cheaper. (IPhone xs, xr, Galaxy s10, LG V50, etc.)


If you are unable to complete 2 years or 3 years. You have to pay a subsidy as well as all the discounted fees as well as spitting out subsidies.
(If you cancel for a year and a half to return to your home country, if the subsidy and discount you received is 600,000 won, the total penalty is 600,000 won)

3. SK Telecom, KT, and LGU You can use the mobile phone companies of Korea's leading mobile phone companies.


It can be used without contract at low price as standard carrier's quality.


Legitimate subsidies for the latest mobile cellphone are close to zero, but do not sign a 2 or 3 year long contract (no cancellation for 6 months, no penalty)
Also, it is possible to charge 30 ~ 70% less than the second rate.

Three companies
Data, unlimited currency
About 65,000 won a month

uplus save M (uplus subsidiary company, same quality, cheap rate, No contract)
Data, unlimited currency
