    Re: Getting a mattress for my apartment

    Yeah, I suppose you're right. In a way, I'm hoping I won't be able to get the mattress the day I arrive, so I won't have to rush on choosing one. It might be better to take my time to choosing a...

    Re: Getting a mattress for my apartment

    Seems I won't be getting that bed frame after all. But I still need something to sleep on when I arrive Aug. 3rd.

    Will it be possible for me to obtain a western mattress and have it at my...
  3. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    no, I meant at home. Even when I get my internet for my apartment set up, it will most likely only work through lan cable (unless I buy and set up a wireless router), and I need a way to connect my...
  4. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    Yeah, that was what I was thinking. My school pred told me that the school doesn't have wifi, so I'll need to use my phone to tether to my kindle and 3ds. I'll also probably be doing a lot of...
  5. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    Hey again. Just a thread update.

    I've been researching sims like crazy over the last couple days and I think I pretty much got it figured out. Appling for and obtaining a SIMS card is a lot...

    Getting a mattress for my apartment

    So, I'm setting up a new apartment once I get to Japan next month. I bought some furniture from a JET in the area, which includes a single (twin) bed frame. The bed frame can be used with either...
  7. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    Ok, I have decided I'm going to try the Sims card thing when I arrive. I have a question though. I will still have service with sprint up til August 20th, but I plan to get the international sim as...

  9. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    I have a 5c actually, not a 5s. The model is A1456. I tried looking this up earlier but couldn't find anything on this particular model of the 5c.
  10. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    I'm asking here first because I don't really know much about sims cards. Also, I'm not in Japan yet, so I can't actually go out and physically shop around myself. My Japanese is probably good...
  11. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    Haha, well this proves my point even more. Even people that are in older generations than me are more into smart phones than I am.
  12. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    I don't see why I need to upgrade. My phone works perfectly fine. Goes on the internet, lets me check my email, lets me text, listen to music, play the occasional game app. That's all I need it to...
  13. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    Did it work though? The sims card? What kind of phone did you have? My Japanese level is intermediate/advanced so I can handle this by myself if I need to.
  14. Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    Hmm. I can't go out and get the sims card myself? Anyway, after all the waiting, did you get the sims card? Did it work? Why did it take you 3 hours just to get a sims card?
  15. Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    Hi.

    So I have a Iphone 5c (from sprint), that was locked, but I have recently unlocked it internationally, for sim cards only.

    So, I thought I'd try a sim card on the phone to see if it works...

    Re: placement preference question

    I didn't get my exact preference, but I was pretty vague on what I requested anyway. Still, I think where I've been placed is perfect.

    I chose Kyoto Prefecture, a random prefecture just under...

    Re: Bringing OTC medicines

    Re: Bringing OTC medicines

    What brands of allergy and cold medicine do you bring? It seems like a lot of brands are illegal to take to Japan, like Dayquil and Nyquil. Or maybe that was just older versions that were banned? ...

    Bringing OTC medicines

    So apparently there is a "two month supply" limit on OTC medications.

    But what I'm trying to understand is, what exactly is "two months" worth? Is it two bottles of pills? Is there a limit on...

    Re: Extra things you brought with you to Japan

    Oh, student ID cards! That's a good idea. I've collected my id cards all the way through middle school as well. That might be an interesting thing to bring.

    Extra things you brought with you to Japan

    Hey all.

    So I'm curious what kinds of things other JETs brought with them on their initial move to Japan. And I'm not referring to the obvious things like clothes, toiletries, or whatever kinds...

    Re: What to wear at Elementary School

    Everyone keeps mentioning t-shirts, but do these t-shirts have graphics on them or are they blank t-shirts? And what kind of pants are your dark pants? Jeans? Slacks?
