I searched for my question across several threads, and I can't seem to find a consistent answer, as there seem to be contradicting accounts. So...
I'm about to travel to South Korea for about 2 weeks. I checked to see if South Korea was offered coverage from VZW's website and it was offered. I called a customer service rep, and asked them to activate the international data plan service for the 2 weeks, and they have it scheduled to turn on, with the charge being pro-rated for the time I'm in the country. I updated my roaming capabilities, and according to him, I should be good to go as soon as I turn on my phone when I land. My question:
People here have stated that they haven't been able to get data service there. Could someone possibly clarify? I don't want to get charged for something that isn't going to work. I'm going to turn off the voice/call capabilities and simply use it for email - so this is purely for the data/email/internet. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
I just got back from S. Korea a week ago and my phone worked flawlessly for data and phone service. Also in Japan perfectly. The only issue I have is the GPS does not seem to pick up there. Not even with Google Maps really. Trying to work that issue out.
Anyone got a solution for the map service in Korea?
