Just picked up the Galaxy Note 3 here in Korea. I am on the KT Olleh network and so far it is awesome! I also have the Note 2 which I just upgraded from, so this phone did impress me a bit. It is hard to find info on here for the Korean variant so I am creating a thread for us :eek:

NEW!!! Universal Root de la Vega is up! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=46818375

Why is it so difficult to buy one here in Korea? I have been seeing the note 3 for sale at the kiosks but no dice on buy the device without a contract. I have the cash in the bank. I already have a contract with olleh. How come I can not just buy a device and swap sim cards here? I trying not to rant but I am on day seven on trying to find a vendor that would sell.

The only way is to post a bit more and then post on designgears' thread to tell him because that way he will see it and he updates the main thread fairly quickly.

I don't know! They are crazy here.. I had to pay the remaining balance for the actual device I had on my last contract and also deactivate an old prepaid sim I purchase a few months ago on my account. Then get this one on a new contract... was a bit frustrating. But it was worth it. By the way one company told me $1200 for the phone without a contract. I found one for like $950.
