Hi,

First of all, I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong section, I didn't know where to post it.

So my question is, can I use my Samsung Galaxy i9000 (bought from NZ - but was from an importer) in Korea? 

Because when I went to Korea my friend had told me they didnt have any sim cards, but when I got there, they did have sim cards.

Im just wondering as my other friend wants to buy a Galaxy as well but will go back to Korea next year.

Thanks

Yes, for South Korea. Was told North Korea use a CDMA network, so you wouldn't be able to but I could be wrong.
Will you be roaming with current providers SIM or plan on using a Local SIM in Korea?

No Im wrong about North Korea, Below copied from Wikipedia.

In November 2002, mobile phones were introduced to North Korea and by November 2003, 20,000 North Koreans had bought mobile phones. On May 24, 2004, however, mobile phones were banned.[2] North Korea supposedly still has a mobile network in Pyongyang which is open for government officials only. Foreigners are not allowed to use (and also until recently to keep) mobile phones in North Korea, although certain high profile visitors such as leadership from the New York Philharmonic which visited North Korea in February 2008, were given rental phones to facilitate direct international communications.
