On the topic of cell phones in Japan...

Jump to last reply

I see a few options in front of me:

(Least desirable): Use current iPhone; activate international dialing and data plan; pay through the roof for data

(Most practical): Rent a phone and rent a MiFi for that phone; but lose the option of having all my Japan travel apps (on my iPhone) that I really want to have on the ground

(Most desirable, but unsure of): Use current iPhone, rent a MiFi with LTE to optimize maximum download speeds; use wireless to utilize apps/maps needed on-the-ground; use Skype via wifi to place any and all calls.

Obviously that last option really seems best to me but not sure why I don't read about more people doing it. Always seems folks are doing one of the first two.

Thoughts?
