Response to Question about Cell Phones

I was there for a year last year with some other students, and I (as well as about half the other students) got one within the first three days. They are indispensible. Granted, our Japanese was horrible then and it took 5 hours of 'talking' about rules, rates and stuff to get our phones, but it was worth it. The other half of the students werent going to get phones for various reasons...well, they all did eventually. Japanese keitais rock technologically (you can get camera phones for like 3000 yen), and you get FREE INCOMING CALLS from anywhere in the world, which is very convenient. They also help you w/learning Japanese with all the text messaging you do on them. I recommend J-Phone.
