[Seoul - Subway/Bus] Free WiFi Tutorial! How to use FREE_U+ Zone on Seoul Subways

If you're traveling in Seoul on the subway, you will notice that everyone is on their phone. You can use the free U+ WiFi zone, too, on Seoul subways. 
This service allows you to have 30 minutes of free WiFi every day. You need to go through this process each time. To use U+, you need to make sure you have an active Korean phone number. You can ask a friend with a Korean number if you did not rent a phone at the airport.

Go through these pictures and follow the directions I wrote in English. The steps should be very similar, but there will likely be a different corporate sponsor when you do it than I had. (I had Hyundai Card.)

Click the button to go on to the next step. You are agreeing to see some advertisements.

 You will see this screen after the advertisements.
Follow the blue instructions. This is where you need to input a valid Korean mobile phone number, usually start with 010. This is important that you input a real number since you receive the confirmation code via SMS. You need to input this number into the SMS box. For example, my SMS code was 82311. Below that, you need to select your gender (남자 = Male; 여자 = female) and your age.

This is the last part. Check the three boxes and then click the pink button. You should be connected!

Recommended travel books:

If you are traveling to Korea, while English is often available on signs and at tourist destinations, it may be wise to know a few phrases since oftentimes the staff at restaurants and other tourist destinations, bus stations, do not know English well. I have looked over multiple Korean phrasebooks and I recommend the Lonely Planet Korean Phrasebook & Dictionary for its small size (makes it great to carry around) and its ease of use.

If you are planning on staying only in Seoul, I would recommend getting a travel book that is solely about Seoul. Top 10 Seoul (Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guide) is great! It has color photos, great maps, and is also very compact, making it a great travel companion.
It gives you a feel of all the different neighborhoods and districts of Seoul and a brief overview of what each district is known and how the  city is laid out to help you plan the most efficient and fun trip!

I definitely recommend, if you get the chance, to get out of Seoul and really explore Korea. Each province and city has its own feel and personality. Plus, the country is about the size of Indiana and transportation options abound, so traveling around is definitely do-able.

Choosing the best country guide was a little more difficult for me. I am typically a Lonely Planet fan, but I found their guide to not be quite as current as this Frommer's guide.

Having an up-to-date guide is very important in Korea since things can literally change overnight!
