    So I am from Japan and have an original 2 year contract with softbank. unfortunately with my visit in the US my iPhone fell, cracked, and fail to turn on. I have bought an unlocked white 32gb iPhone 4. Can I just return to Japan, stick my old sim card (from previous iPhone that is now broken) into my new factory unlocked iPhone and expect it to work flawlessly? Thanks in advance.

    If it is factory unlocked than yes. It will be fine.

    Yes.
    If I were you, I would return the unlocked iPhone. Take your broken iPhone to a Apple Store in Japan and pay the replacement fee. It's ¥ 22,800 for a replacement without extending your contract. It's much cheaper than buying a new iPhone from the States, and sometimes Apple does free replacements.
