Communication Services

I've heard that it can be difficult to get phone service in Korea if you're a foreigner. Is that true?

I guess it depends on how you define difficult. Expat corporate executives have very little trouble, since their companies obtain service for them or guarantee payment. However, that is not the case for many ESL teachers, small foreign investors and corporate spouses. Some companies will require foreign residents to pay downpayment. Expats who do not have a resident's visa (for example the unmarried partner of someone working legally in Korea) generally cannot get land line service and may not be able to obtain a mobile phone either.
