Your mobile hardware should work as I'm using a Nokia 7600 UMTS mobile
with a Vodafone Japan USIM without problems. I've also used it
successfully with a DoCoMo FOMA USIM (Green) but DoCoMo wouldn't
provide the GPRS settings to test the data side.
Whether a European USIM will work in Japan is dependent on whether you
carrier has a roaming agreement with either DoCoMo or Vodafone Japan.
Nik may be able to shed some light on Vodafone inbound roaming. More
info on DoCoMo inbound roaming is available at
