Actually the reason I recommend PHS, is that I know
a driver who loves PHS because its works in his car superbly,
and two other friends of mine who have PHS love it because
it works on the Oedo line (way underground) where other
carriers do not (TuKa, JPhone I know don't).
Of course I don't know how other keitai's work in cars because
I don't know many drivers in Tokyo who use a keitai of any kind.
