Cell Phones on Okinawa, Part 2
CONTRIBUTED BY HEATHER GELORMINE
Technology moves fast. Lightning fast. So quickly that the iPhone 4s that my husband and I got when we PCS’d back to the US last summer and which had just been released are now old news; a year later the iPhone 5 is almost here and my phone is now practically a dinosaur. Let’s not even talk about the Kindle I purchased in the summer of 2009 for more than what their fanciest tablet now costs, and all I can do on mine is read books. I digress…
My point is this: back in August of 2007 we asked our readers what cell phones and companies they used here on Okinawa, and up until the summer of 2010 we had responders chiming in to ask questions and providing answers. But I don’t think I’m too far off when I say the information in that post is now past its prime. Obsolete. In need of some updating.
That’s where you come in. Tell us, please, about your experiences with cell phones on Okinawa. What company do you use: SoftBank, AU, Docomo – and what do you like/dislike about it? Do you have a monthly plan or do you buy pay-per-use phone cards? Are you addicted to your does-everything-but-the-dishes smartphone or is that good old flip phone still working for you? (And if it’s the former, you know that we have a mobile version of our site available for your reading pleasure, right?)
Thanks for helping us out!
