Default Blackberry Work in Korea?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,

Does anyone know if any blackberries work in Korea? I will be going there for an extended time in early 2007, and would like to use a blackberry while there (I am officially a crackberry addict).

I know that KT Powertel just started offering the 7100i in Korea last spring, but haven't heard much about how good this network is. Couple questions for anyone who has recently been there or is in the know:

1) Would I be able to say port over the new 8703e from Verizon and have it work on their network?
2) Would the EVDO internet work?
3) Anyone know how good the KT Powertel coverage is?
4) Do any of the GSM based blackberries work (IE: Does Korea offer anything other than CDMA?)

I love my Blackberry (8700c on Cingular) and am not sure how the heck I am going to survive over there for 3 months without one!!

I tried a search on this topic and wasn't able to find any recent Korea-specific info.

Thanks guys and gals,
