I have an Xperia J from Hong Kong, I want to use it with my Korean SIM but I don't know how, I heard it's not as simple as just getting it unlocked (which i don't know how to do) but don't wanna do anything till I know for sure what I need to do

"Q. Can I use a phone that I brought from home? Do I need to register it?

A. As long as it supports WCDMA on the 2100mHz frequency, and it is unlocked, it should work on the KT network. There used to a registration process, but as of May 2012, KT has changed over to a "blacklist" system, meaning that as long as a phone has not been reported lost or stolen, you should be able to bring it to Korea and simply pop in an activated Korean SIM card. No registration required."
