Yes, that button is still available. However, I do believe that that
information is stored not in JR's databases, but on the card. After all,
that is the whole point of using an expensive option like Felica, rather
than something much cheaper that simply has an ID number: the card can
securely store information such as how much credit you have left and
where you got on, so that you can do local processing of transactions
rather than central processing.
