Phone and Internet


Cell phone

Most of Koreans have cell phone and it is not hard to subscribe it as foreigner in Korea. But since you are foreigner, mobile companies ask 200 thousands won for deposit money. It will be returned when you terminate the cell phone service.

To register Cell phone under your name , you must have alien card which you will make after you come to Korea. There are many mobile service shops ( SK,KTF,LG) on the street, there you can buy cell phone and get it activate right away. The cell phone price varies depending on model. If you don’t need fancy and newly released model, you will be able to buy new model around between 50000won and 100000 won.  



Most of housing  provided by the school has landline. In case your housing happen not to have landline, you can easily install it. The basic fee is 5000won and you will pay for it depending on how much you use.


*Calling abroad from cell phone and landline in Korea: I strongly recommend you to use prepaid calling card, you can purchase it in any convenient stores.

If you don’t have prepaid calling card but you have to call right away, please dial 001 /00700 and  then push your country code and city code ( drop the “ 0” ) then the number.


In South Korea internet use is common. Almost of every household has internet service in Korea and also internet café ( 1000won for one hour )is easily found everywhere . Quick internet Set-up and inexpensive monthly internet fee with unlimited use and fast speed.If you don’t bring your computer, you can easily access to computer at  schools. Every schools has internet Service.
