Choose How Long You Will Be In Japan

If you’ve ever tried to get a Japanese SIM Card, you’ll be well aware that it’s really difficult. Most companies require you to have a Japanese credit card and Residence Visa. There's also the difficulty of filling out complicated forms in Japanese.

Introducing Mobal’s Japan Unlimited SIM!

Our service is different, We have removed obstacles that other providers place in your way. It’s simple to buy a Japan Unlimited SIM Card, it’s easy to activate, and it’s simple to cancel it if you need to.

Our long-term Japan SIM cards are perfect for you if you are living, working or studying in Japan. You can have your SIM shipped to you before you travel, or you can pick it up when you arrive in Japan.

We provide a SIM card which fits any phone - including iPhones, Android smartphones and basic phones.


yes Always-on data

yes Free incoming calls & incoming texts

yes Real Softbank Japanese phone number

Will The SIM Work in My Phone?

You can use the Japan Unlimited SIM in any unlocked phone that supports the 3G Band 1 (2100MHz) or 4G Band 1 (2100MHz) frequency.

What does "unlocked" mean?

If your device is "unlocked", it means that it can work with a SIM card from any network. If your device is "locked", it is restricted to work only on your regular carrier's network. Your device must be "unlocked" to work with the Japan Unlimited SIM.

How do you know if your phone is unlocked?

If you purchased your device as an "unlocked" or "SIM Free" device from a retailer such as Amazon, then your device is almost certainly already unlocked. This means that it will work with our SIM card. If you purchased your device directly from your carrier (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.), your device is probably locked and, therefore, it may not work with our SIM card. If you're still not sure whether or not your device is unlocked, simply contact the store where you purchased your device from.

My device is locked. What can I do?

If your device is locked, it may be possible to get it unlocked - simply ask your provider about this.

smartphone user

Real Japanese Phone Number

All our Japan Unlimited plans come with a real 070, 080 or 090 Japanese phone number with cheap calls and texts (incoming calls and texts are free). A real number is essential in Japan if you’re working or studying. Some providers supply a ‘virtual’ number, but these aren’t accepted by many institutions.

Choose a plan, collect in Japan...

We'll be at the hotel where your JET Orientation takes place in Tokyo. Our team will be there to hand over your SIM and answer your questions.

Voice, Text & Data SIM - Shipping Options for Japan

japan data only SIM

FREE Shipping

For security reasons, we are unable to deliver your Voice, Text & Data SIM direct to your address in Japan, however, we can deliver to your local Post Office ready for you to collect.

+ More info on Japan Post Office delivery

In order to prevent fraudulent usage on Japan SIM cards, it is a requirement of Japanese law that we must follow super-strict delivery procedures within Japan.

This guide explains the delivery procedure and hopefully unravels some of the complexity!

Here’s how it works…

• Place your order online. Your Shipping Address must be entered as the address printed on your Japan Residence Card/Special Permanent Resident Certificate.

• After placing your order, upload your ID to our secure server. Don’t worry, uploading your ID is quick, simple and secure.

• Your SIM card will not be delivered direct to your address. It will be delivered to your nearest Post Office with a collection window (Yu-Yu Modoguchi).
This is because the Post Office are required to check your address again before handing over your SIM card to you.

We will send you a tracking number so that you can easily track the progress of your package.

• A notification card from the Post Office will be delivered to your address. This card will provide details of the Post Office (name, address, opening times and contact information) and the date your package will be held until. You need to collect or arrange delivery within 10 days or your package will be returned to Mobal.
Note that the notification card will be written in Japanese. If you don’t read Japanese, you may need to download a translation app – or ask a friend to help you.

• You can collect your package from the Post Office or arrange for your package to be delivered:

o To collect your package, simply visit the Post Office but before you head over there, make sure you’ve checked their opening times.

o To have your package delivered, simply call the Post office (you may need to speak Japanese) to arrange a convenient data and time.
Note that your delivery address cannot be changed.

IMPORTANT: You will need to show the Post Office notification card, your passport and Japan Residence Card/Special Permanent Resident Certificate upon delivery/collection.

" Mobal has been amazing! It was so nice to already have a phone number and data to use …. I was also able to use the high speed data to look up how to set up my home internet and translate things around my new apartment coverage "

Elizabeth B

Billing

For your first month of service, your monthly Plan fees will be pro-rated. For example, if you activate your SIM on July 16th, you will be billed half of your regular monthly bill for the period from July 16th until July 31st. On August 1st, you will be billed in advance for the month of August. Going forward, you will be billed on the 1st of every calendar month until you choose to cancel your service.

Any chargeable calls and texts will also be billed to you on the 1st of the month.

You can view fully itemized statements detailing all of your charges in your online account - so you always know exactly what you are paying for!

We accept payments from all major credit/debit cards and Paypal. You can also pay your monthly fees by cash – see below.

payment options

Pay by Cash
If you are living and working in Japan, you may find that it’s not convenient to pay your bill long-term with your international Debit/Credit Card or PayPal account. Some international providers charge transaction fees – or you may not be keeping money in your international account.

To solve these problems, after you’ve paid a full month's line rental you can change your payment method to cash. This means that you can pay your bill in cash at thousands of convenience stores around Japan - any Mini Stop, Lawson, Family Mart or Circle K / Sunkus.

cash payment stores

Paying by cash is easy. Each month, we’ll email you to let you know how much you need to pay. We provide you with a simple step-by-step guide on how to make your payment in store.

Switching to cash payment
Once you've made your first monthly payment (billed on the 1st of each month), just login to your online account and choose the option to make future payments in cash.

" The Mobal staff were very helpful with great English. The phone service is faultless – very fast with excellent coverage "

Can I pick-up my SIM?

Yes! You can collect your SIM from our convenient collection points at airports and cities around Japan – completely free of charge. Simply choose your pick-up point when you add your product to the shopping cart.


Why don’t you charge tax?

Mobal is based in New York, USA - so we don’t need to charge Japanese taxes.


Do I get itemized statements?

All usage charges are fully itemized in your online account, so you always know exactly what you are paying for. Your log-in information will be emailed to you when you activate your service.


What currency am I billed in?

All of your charges are billed in Japanese Yen (JPY).


Will the SIM work in my phone?

You can use the Japan Unlimited SIM in any unlocked phone that supports the 3G or 4G Band 1 (2100MHz) frequency. All iPhones and most modern Androids support the Band 1 frequency.

If your phone is locked, it’s often possible to get it unlocked - simply ask your provider about this.

What does "unlocked" mean?
If your phone is "unlocked", it means that it can work with a SIM card from any network. If your phone is "locked", it is restricted to work only on your regular carrier's network. Your phone must be "unlocked" to work with the Japan Unlimited SIM.

How do you know if your phone is unlocked?
If you purchased your phone as an "unlocked" or "SIM Free" phone from a retailer such as Amazon, then your phone is almost certainly already unlocked. This means that it will work with our SIM card. If you purchased your phone directly from your carrier (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.), your phone is probably locked and, therefore, it may not work with our SIM card. If you're still not sure whether or not your phone is unlocked, simply contact the store where you purchased your phone from.

My phone is locked. What can I do?
If your phone is locked, it may be possible to get it unlocked - simply ask your provider about this.

What size SIM card will I get?
Our SIM cards are ‘Nano-SIM’-size (perfect for up-to-date iPhones and other Smartphones). We provide a SIM adapter, so you can use the SIM in any other phone too.


What data speeds can I expect?

Data is fast, free and and unlimited, you'll get 1GB, 5GB, 10GB or 30GB of fast 4G LTE data per month.

If you use up your entire monthly plan allowance, your data speed will be reduced to a maximum of 200 Kbps. These reduced speeds may not be sufficient for streaming music or video, but they will still allow activities such as web browsing, emailing, posting to social media, Whatsapp messaging, etc.


When is the allowance reset?

Your high speed data allowance will be reset on the 1st of each month.


Is there a voicemail service?

Your voicemail service will be automatically set-up for you when you activate your SIM. Voicemail is easy to use! Simple instructions are included in your package.


Can I use the SIM in any other countries?

Our Mobal Japan Unlimited SIM cards only work in Japan. They will not work in any other countries.


Can I use tethering/use my phone as a hotspot?

Yes!


Can I use VoIP services, such as Skype, Viber, Whatsapp, Facetime, etc?

Yes! Using VoIP services for calling and instant messaging can be a great way to keep in touch rather than paying extra for traditional voice calls & texts.


Do I need to send any ID?

It is a requirement of Japanese law that we must collect ID from users of Japan Voice SIM cards to prevent fraudulent usage. If you are picking up your SIM in Japan, you can simply show your passport when you collect. If you choose delivery, you must upload your ID before shipping. Check out our Shipping & Pick-up Options to find the right choice for you.

Be assured that we are committed to protecting your security for the lifetime of your service with us. Your ID information is fully encrypted and stored in a secure environment.


" I arrived in Japan almost four months ago, and I had no idea how difficult it was going to be to get a mobile-phone service… Knowing that I can now get a SIM card without a termination fee, with unlimited data that I can suspend when out of Japan is ideal for me "

Profits Go To Charity

With a Mobal SIM, you don't just travel the world, you make it a better place!
tony smith mobal chairman

It all started with one man's desire to make calls while traveling...

Mobal was the brainchild of Chairman Tony Smith. As a lifelong international traveler, he was constantly frustrated when trying to keep in touch with family, friends & business contacts on his many trips overseas.

On the back of the success of the international cell phone service he has established a number of charities with a desire to change the world.

In February 2016, Tony set up Seibo, a registered Japanese non-profit organisation with a simple aim: to feed every hungry child in the world a hot meal in school!. School feeding carries many benefits - education, nutrition and health, gender equality, food security, poverty alleviation - in one single meal. The world would be changed if every hungry child in it were to receive a meal at school.

Mobal guarantees that the majority of profits go to its charities, so with your Mobal SIM, you don't just travel the world, you make it a better place!

testimonial

" I was very glad to have located mobal. Nowadays, we are so hooked up on the internet for news, facebook, instagram and whatsapp etc. I would recommend anyone to mobal if you can't live without internet :) "
Ngo, Singapore

testimonial

" Purchased a Mobal Data SIM for my iPhone while on a cruise around Japan. The SIM arrived here in the U.S. very quickly, so I had it with me to install once I landed in Tokyo. It worked perfectly in all the Japan ports of call. Was able to text, use internet/Google Maps/Google Translate and send/receive emails with no issues. "

testimonial

" I'm a digital nomad and I need to be connected most of the time for my work.
But internet in Japan is really expensive. Imagine 3000 Yen for 3GB and 3000 Yen for a 2GB Recharge! (Don't bother checking. It's the cheapest!) On average, I spend close to 10,000 Yen just on Internet alone.
I don't know about you, but that could've been money spent on other things (like a Tsukiji Foodie Crawl!).
But with Mobal's unlimited Internet, I don't have to break the bank while I work and explore Japan!
Thank you Mobal! "
