    Hi,

    I belong to India. I recently shifted to South Korea. I have nokia lumia 720. I went to get a new korean sim card, the service provider told me that the Nokia lumia is not supported by any service provider. He told me to buy new cell phone instead. Kindly guide me, should I buy new phone or can I continue with my nokia lumia phone.

    If your carrier in South Korea has different bands than what your 720 you bought has, then he's right.

    That's a lot, and I'm overwhelmed right now. It seems like some of those might work, but not work very well.

    Hey, don't carriers in South Korea use CDMA instead of GSM?
