    Hi guys,

    I'm currently have my D2G unlocked for SIM card access for GSM carriers overseas. I've been trying to check out prices and it's almost looking like American phones will not work even with a 3g/gsm capability in Korea. I was wondering if anyone has used their american phone in Korea , if its a DSG even better! I also know they are coming out with a new SIM this OCT2011, detail here: SK Telecom launches SIM cards that add NFC to existing phones , but don't know if that will make a difference.

    Any help would be great.... Thank :motdroidhoriz:

    I moved this to the D2G section.

    Hopefully someone here can get you some answers.

    Not always reliable, but the Verizon page Calling From South Korea

    suggests that the phone will work on CDMA in some parts of South Korea (I am assuming you mean south rather than north!)

    Yes it is s. Korea, but i'm mainly concerned with a SIM card carrier, which I know they have, but Don't know too much on the restrictions for phones outside of Korea.

    OK, look at the AT&T page:

    3G Phones for Travel to Japan or South Korea - Wireless from AT&T

    This states that you need a GSM 3G phone at 2100Mhz and lists several of their phones that will work. That frequency IS supported by the Droid 2 Global, so it might work!

    KT supports 2100MHz W-CDMA/UMTS.

    I use my D2G in Korea with an SK SIM and it works just fine.
