[The Chosun Ilbo, August 6 2007] Demand for Internet-Free Phones Surging

Demand especially among parents for mobile phones without a wireless Internet function is surging, but the service providers stand accused of failing to meet it. Lee Sung-young, a homemaker from Seoul’s Jamsil said, “My son in middle school used to play wireless Internet games on his mobile phone, and the bill for the games was over W120,000 (US$1=W923). I wanted to replace his phone with one without a wireless Internet feature, but it’s very inconvenient since that means changing the mobile service provider and there are few handsets available.
