So im going to be going to Japan for a week or so (March 21-30) and im still having doubts if I should take my phone or not. I dont wanna come back with a $500 phone bill hahaha. Now, ive done some homework (not a completely clueless post ) Roaming is $2.29/minute or $1.69 if you pay for a $5 international plan. Now for Data, they have some kind of plan where its like $24.99 for 25MB or $55 for 50MB. Text message is also $.50/txt (for sending or receiving) and $1.30 for picture or video.....<<<yea... Now, the phone constantly checks for emails and I can just turn that feature off and just check @ Wi-fi hot spots. Am I missing anything? Anything else people know that I dont know?
