    Re: Japan and Phones

    Yeah but 6S just came out, so I see why this person wouldn't wanna trash a new phone a year after getting it. I think it's arguably less stressful to get a 2-year sim plan and if you end up leaving...

    Re: Japan and Phones

    Yeah, it really depends where you are. Someone here got a sim plan for their unlocked phone at a Docomo, no credit card needed at all. Softbank and au were no's. I'd try them first, especially if...

    Re: Japan and Phones

    I'm getting an air. Apparently the normal plug (not extension) is compatible in japan bc it's 2 pronged so that's kinda nice. Also Apple stores in japan have English speaking staff.... Not so sure if...

    Re: Japan and Phones

    I'm in the same boat. My macbook pro is going on 5 years, and while it's still got some juice left in it, there's no way it's gonna last in Japan. It's so freakin slow and freezes way too much for me...

    Re: Japan and Phones

    Omg... what a pain in the ass. When does your supervisor typically email (if they do), around after placements are sent? Just ask about it then? I definitely don't wanna rely on data for months lol.

    Re: Japan and Phones

    Re: Japan and Phones

    Re: Japan and Phones

    Do you consider 80/mo for full smart phone service expensive? I'm pretty happy with that, hopefully I'll be able to make that number work when I go get a contract... I considered unlocking, but wow...

    Re: Japan and Phones

    So you're tellin me with the subsidy from SoftBank, I can get a 16gb phone for free with the voice/text plan... I like that, I literally have only ever owned 16gb iPhones and never filled one up...
