Just did a search and didn't find much on this specific subject... wondering if you can help?
Does Softbank offer cellphone, internet and television packages? It looks like they are affiliated with SpinNet and one of the posts in my search said that they do some pretty hardcore web-filtering. I'll probably go with other GP users' advice of hitting up Newsgroups instead of torrenting, anyways, but I digress.
I know there's J:Com which actually looks pretty good. I'd like to be with Softbank, as, when we move to Japan, I'd like to get an iPhone (for the GPS map function). Would I have any options with Softbank?
Actually, I have a few more questions, if I may ask:
- in the posts I read during my search, many users seem to want a landline. I've been living (in Canada) without a landline for over 8 years, so I am wondering if having one in Japan is important?
- would it be prudent for my wife and I to consider being with the same cell phone carrier? Do they offer "free au-to-au calling" or "free Softbank-to-Softbank calling"?
Thank-you for your advice!
