Cell phones in Japan 2016/7/20 17:47
Hey there,

my name is Daniel and I am going to fly to Japan next October to stay there for a year abroad and I have a question regarding cell phones.

Since my old Samsung Galaxy S4 broke last week, I decided to buy myself a new one. But I am not sure if a normal cell phone I bought here in Germany can even be used in Japan, because I read a lot about different problems with foreign cell phones in Japan.

So, before I just go ahead and order a new Galaxy S4, I wanted to ask if I can even use it in Japan. If yes, is there anything else I need to know regarding cell phones in Japan? For example, it would also be helpful to know about cheap mobile tariffs - maybe even especially for foreigners, if there is anything like that.

Normale Verträge (Softbank, AU und Dococmo sind die drei groen ; wie Telekom, O2 und bla bla) sind teuer. Verträge sind auf 2 Jahre begrenzt.

Du musst dir ein neues Handy kaufen wenn du da einen Vertrag machen willst.

Die auf ihr Geld achten buchen sogenannnte MVNO

Wenn dein Samsung Galaxy4 da funzt (mein S2 und S5 Galaxy haen in Japan tadellos funktioniert) dann gehen MVNO.

Manchmal brauch man Japanischkenntnisse. Und vllt ne Kreditkarte fürs Set-up.

Es gibt nichts extra für Ausländer, eher weniger.

und warum ein S4? Ist das nicht ein bissel alt...
