How to Activate the sim card?
To activate this Japan travel sim, all you need to do is update the APN settings when you land in Japan. The Japan sim card will come with the instructions on what the APN Settings are and how to update them for both Android and iOS phones. Once in Japan and you have updated your APN settings the sim will automatically activate which is when your 30 days begins.
**Please note: If you use up your 3GB of 4G Data allowance, the data speed will slow down to 128kb for the remainder of the period, this will also apply to your app speed as well. If you feel you will need more than 3GB of Data then please purchase multiple Japan sim cards accordingly.
Hotspoting/tethering will directly use your 3GB data regardless of the apps the other device you are hotspotting to is using. Unlimited Data for the following apps: Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Google Maps, Messenger, Skype, Twitter, WeChat, Kakao Talk and Line Chat not applicable via hotspotting.
Calling and Texting
This Japan sim card is a Data only sim card and as such it does not come with calls and text. However, we recommend that you use data based apps such as Whatsapp, Viber, Skype, Messenger, etc to make phone calls and send messages. You are also able to add credit to your Viber or Sykpe account, which will allow you to make Local and International phone calls directly to landlines and mobiles.
If you are travelling with another person it is important to have the ability to contact one another at any time especially in an emergency. We highly advise that you both purchase a Japan sim card so you can keep in touch using the apps noted above.
International SIM cards require your device to be unlocked, if you are unsure, please contact your service provider for more details.
Plans are subject to change without notice by the carrier but will do our best to inform you of any changes as soon as they arise.
How to recharge?
If you feel you will need more than 3GB of Data then please purchase multiple Japan sim cards accordingly. For example if you need 6GB of data then please purchase 2 of these sim cards since they are 3GB each. Alternatively, if you are travelling for more than 30 days please purchase multiple sims accordingly, as this sim card cannot be recharged. For example, travelling 60 days then purchase 2 sim cards since they are 30 days each
