DoCoMo, Softbank and au yes, but older phones are still SIM-less.

W-CDMA networks are completely compatible (though some older FOMA base
stations may not work with non-Motorola phones). cdma2000 networks use
different frequency, so they are not compatible with foreign handsets.
> - Can the UMTS2100 send/receive SMS across operators in Japan?
I guess yes, never tried though. It can send/receive to operators abroad,
but not very reliable (sometimes SMS do not arrive).
