Apologies if this is slightly off topic, but I'm visiting Japan for
2 weeks and would appreciate any advice regarding obtaining/using a
cellphone for those 2 weeks - whether to buy one, rent one, which phone
to ask for, which operator to use, prepay vs postpay etc - bearing
in mind the following:
a) The primary purpose is to provide my clients (in GSM countries)
with an emergency number in Japan where I can be reached at all
times (so, it would be handy to know the number in advance, before
arriving, but not a pre-requisite of course).
b) I would like to use this opportunity to do some research on the
end-user keitai experience - from basic web/imode & email to
c) I will return to Japan later in 2004, and tend to visit Japan
once every year. Since I'm only there for a few weeks throughout
the entire year, a recurring monthly contract is not ideal.
Are there restrictions on pre-pay packages ?
d) I will be in Hokkaido (snowboarding) but I guess Japan's operators
have ubiquitous/universal coverage ?
If you can recommend any "must see" content for neophytes then
that would save some time too :)
Thank you very much,
