Sigh, Lost My Cellphone

Well, I haven't been able to find my cell phone since returning from Amami last week, so I've got to bite the bullet and get another.

It turns out that my provider, Au, really doesn't offer any benefit for having been with them for the last four years, so it's just as easy for me to start fresh with someone else as it is to get another phone with them. So, anyone in Japan have any suggestions for a phone/provider for someone like me who uses a cell phone only occasionally, and never uses web access or 99% of the other features, to tide me over until the iPhone arrives?

Not sure if that plan is still available, but I’m on the Softbank White Plan for some 990 Yen base fee, with free calls and messages to other Softbankers.

I’m with Docomo on the SS plan with a family plan. Calls and mail with anyone in your family plan are free. The SS plan is around 2000+ yen with some free minutes (sorry can’t remember how many off hand).

By the way, great site! Love the pictures!
