[The Chosun Ilbo, July 16 2007] How to Make Best Use of Automatic Roaming

Kim Do-sik, an office worker who is in negotiation with a Japanese firm to attract investment, used to have to rent a phone from the airport’s mobile roaming center whenever he went to Japan on a business trip. No longer. Things have become much simpler since he got a third-generation WCDMA phone. Now he can just use his own phone in Japan. As more and more people subscribe to 3G mobile services like KTF’s “Show” and SK Telecom’s “3G+”, many also plumb for automatic roaming. But while the service is convenient, it also pricey. Here, the Chosun Ilbo suggests how to make the most of the service by keeping a close eye on the setup and discounts that may be on offer.
