    Re: 2015 JET Alternates Thread

    Well, it doesn't make a difference. As you said, I don't want to waste the money, and the end result is exactly the same. It also gave me a back up in the slight chance my current route fell through...

    Re: 2015 JET Alternates Thread

    Yep, I'll be going to Japan on the Daiwa Scholarship. Thank you!

    Good luck with the alternate status to you and everyone else. At least you have one less person to compete with now!

    Re: 2015 JET Alternates Thread

    London here. Just got an email today to tell me of my disqualification (I didn't post a reply slip). I guess it's taking them a while to wade through everyone's slips before selecting the upgrades...

    Yep, once uni finishes that's what I've been planning to do. Basically get this thing as close to factory as possible and see if it still runs like a potato. If it does, I have an excuse to buy...

    Re: Japan and Phones

    While we've sidetracked from the phone conversation onto laptops, I have a similar question to everyone else.

    I have a laptop I bought for university, nearly had it 3 years now. 3rd gen i5, pretty...

    Thanks. I misread your post and assumed you were a current JET paying 7k, didn't realise you were referring to the document from before.

    Re: Japan and Phones

    Umm. I'm not. I will go there, attempt to somehow get my HTC working, and if it doesn't, THEN I'll sort something else out. I'm not going to just jump into £60/month without testing out a cheaper...

    Yes, it's expensive. From the links, those 'unlimited' data plans are 5gb or so (i.e not unlimited).

    Re: Japan and Phones

    Oh wow that's very expensive from what I can see. It sucks that its not much cheaper if I bring my own phone. I'd rather not use an iPhone, and I just bought myself an HTC One M8 which I'd be happy...

    Re: Japan and Phones

    Big block of text confused me. I got the idea that the phone costs 540yen per month (64 gb) from that, which can't be the case. What are the other costs? And what do these contracts consist of?...

    Japan and Phones

    So... I'm in the UK and have a smartphone on contract. The contract won't end for another year and a half or so which is annoying, but not much I can do on that front. However, I still want to use it...
