Bring Rogers smartphone to South Korea?
Guys, just wondering if you (or somebody you know) have brought Rogers smartphone to South Korea to use?
My wife is going there in a few weeks and she would like to bring her phone (Note 1) with her. I did some research and Rogers does have partnership with SK Telecom but she would have to rent or purchase a CDMA phone as Rogers uses GSM and South Korea uses CDMA.
I thought about unlocking the phone for her and she can then simply pop in a local SIM card but again if the technology is different, I'm not sure if her phone will work?
I have suggested to her that it's better to rent/buy a cheap local phone and you don't have to worry about any exorbitant charges/incompatibility but she would like to bring her phone as it contains all addresses and contact info.
I'm still doing further research but if you have any tips/tidbits to share, please go ahead.
