I have an iPhone 4S and I will be going to South Korea for a year for my 1st duty station in the army. What should I do? Can I get it unlocked or should I just by a phone over there? I need contact with my family.

Which provider are you using in the States? –  patrix Feb 11 '13 at 6:47
    
AT&T, I've heard about a SIM card I can put in it if I get unlocked? –  Dayton simmons Feb 12 '13 at 0:22

Before buying a CDMA SIM in Korea, check that your iPhone 4s is

  1. a CDMA phone, and
  2. unlocked

Calling stateside from South Korea using a Korea-issued SIM card may be expensive. You should consider getting iOS apps (e.g. Skype, WhatsApp) that relies on WiFi or data plan to communicate.
