Despite more expensive rates for cellphones over public phones, Koreans have made mobile phones an integral part of their daily lives. In fact, there are more mobile phone subscriptions than landline subscriptions in the country. You can purchase mobile phone handsets and activate both regular and prepaid services with your passport and foreign registration card at nearby mobile phone shops, which are run by either SK Telecom, KT Show, or LG Telecom.
