I want to buy the new Galaxy phone and I hear that KT Global stores have made it very easy for foreigners to get any phone they want without the hassle of getting someone to sign for it. At the moment I am on LGU and still have time on my contract. I am happy to cancel and pay for that though. My question is can I get the new phone on KT and then transfer the network while I am in that store to keep my number? Or, if that isn't possible, can I buy the new phone and then cancel the old one at a later date?
The issue is I don't live in Seoul and it would be quite awkward if I cancelled my old phone contract and then it turns out that I can't, for some reason, get the new one.
