The best keitai

I'll soon be in a position where I'll be buying my own keitai (Japanese mobile phone) . Here in America, I can understand the finer details of a cell phone contract. But I don't think I will have that luxury in Japan.

I plan on traveling inside Japan on breaks, so a company with national coverage would be great. The other areas I am interested in are of course, good value and good reception.

My Japanese readers, if you could do me a huge favor, please comment. Which keitai service do you have? DoCoMo? Vodaphone? AU? and why? Which service do you think is best? why? Thank you so much!

What is wrong with SoftBank?

Dear Anonymous

This post was a long time ago. Back then Softbank was a company called Vodafone.

I actually ended up going with Vodafone (now Softbank), which seemed to be the middle of the road in price and quality.

However, recently AU has upped it's services, and if I had it to do all over again, I'd choose AU because they're cheap and reliable.

Also, be sure to ask if your phone model has a long battery life and good reception. Those are two things my current model is a little lacking on.

Good luck!
