Has anybody used a cellphone they bought in Thailand back in the states? I'm decided I'm going to get a tracphone, but then I remembered I still have the phone from Thailand. It's an iMobile. Does anybody know how I could use this in the US?
Yes, they work just fine but, you'll have to buy a sim card from and independent operator/cell provider when you get to where you're going in the states.
We went to Portland, Or. and had zero problem getting hooked up. Cheers

They don't work in Korea. It won't even let the sim card activate, so I can get to the phone numbers in the memory, and I didn't think to write them down anywhere...Doh!

Damn. I'm at my parents' place now (in a different state). I left my cellphone from Thailand at my place. I need some kind of communication so I'm going to go get a tracphone today. I wish I had my phone from Thailand with me to see if I could get it working.
Well, Korea is my next destination. I wonder if I'll have the same problems you're having with your phone in Korea.
^^ If you're coming to Korea expect to buy a new one and start all over.. And you can't get service without an ID card or a Korean to sign you up. I got a 'black market' one from a guy who gets things for foreigners. I have to go by his office and give him 10,000 won every month. It's about impossible to find a job without one and you can't legally get one without a job because you don't get the ID card untill you get your work visa. Good Luck with it.
Anyway, let's try to keep this thread on topic. I already got a job lined up. I'll have my work visa before coming to Korea. I'm not sure about the ID card. Where do you get the ID card?
