    You would have to ask the Korean carriers. From a purely hardware standpoint it should work, but it's up to the carriers whether they will support a non-Korean iPhone on their LTE network.

    Not really sure. From the hardware side it can be that the WiFi channels are different from Poland (the hardware in a country is sold wit only the channels that are allowed), on the "list" most channels overlap between Europe and Korea (La Pastenague has explained that to me, with a lot of patience).

    The 3G, LTE etc is a matter of availability and/or provider. As varjak paw said.

    I presume you meant to say "LTE channels", not "WiFi channels", yes?

    NO, I meant WiFi.

    Which is also used very often in normal iPhone usage.

    The hardware sold is different in different countries: as an extreme example: you cannot use Wifi in Europe with an iPhone bought in China. In the USA only 5 channels are overlapping: 149, 153, 157, 161 and 165.

    Europe and Korea all use those same channels as well (which are, I believe, applicable only to the 5GHz range), though lower power is required in European devices which may bar devices from China but would also bar devices from the US, and I've never heard of that being an issue. But the OP seems to have been asking about LTE between Poland and Korea, I believe.

     

    Regards.

    Poland is Europe. I do not have the compatibility table for Korea and Europe. But for example Taiwan to Germany has only the 1-6 channel (i.e. 2.4GHz) and a number of 5GHz channels (La Pastenague is the professor who has them all).

    Yes, I know that Poland is in Europe. And I have access to the compatibility tables and in the 2.4GHz band S. Korea and Europe use the same channels though allowable output power in the access point is restricted in Korea. In any case, though, since the OP again seems to have been asking about LTE, not WiFi, this would appear to be an academic discussion.

     

    Regards.
