    Considering that I may be moving to Japan early next year, is it worth buying the new 3G in the UK and hoping for an unlock so I could use it in Japan.

    Can SIM cards be taken out of contract Japanese phones? Even if I was able to get my hands on a contract soft-bank phone?

    If a thread already exists for such a topic, please redirect me. Otherwise, thanks for your input.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure there will be some sort of way to unlock the 3g 2.0 software.
