you can't buy a sim card, they don't sell pre-paid sims there.

my opinion: just rent a korean phone while you're there. hell, some of the phones are just as nice as the iphone. in the mean time, use the iphone4 as a mini ipad.
have fun in korea btw. it's been years since i've been there and i definitely wanna go back. so much has changed.
To get under their imei registration my impression is you have to pay like 300 dollars and be a korean citizen or have a visa provided to foreigners married to koreans... All this money i'd pay, I'd rather just pay to ATT. I'm only there for a week.
