SIM card is available in three sizes: mini (regular), micro, nano.
Make sure selecting the right size to suit your device.
If you buy wrong size of the card, most providers do not exchange it, nor give a refund for any reason.
Meanwhile, if you use a rental SIM card service, some providers may exchange it or give a refund even after you received.
First, your device must be UNLOCKED to use SIM cards.
To unlock your device, you need to contact your device suppliers or device manufacturers.
In addition to that, your device must support one of the following frequency bands.
4G(LTE): Band 1 (2100MHz), Band 19 (800MHz), Band 21 (1500MHz)
3G(W-CDMA/HSDPA/HSUPA):Band 1 (2100MHz), Band 19 (800MHz)
In Japan, available frequency bands vary depending on places.
If your device does not support the frequency band of a place, you might not get connected.
Before you go out, we highly recommend you to check compatibility of your device by using service below.
Same as the case of wrong card size, most providers do not exchange it,
nor give a refund for any reason once after you buy it.
If you get around Japan especially local places, we recommend you to rent a Mobile WiFi from a rental service provider.
