    Hello guys,

    I am galih from indonesia and i will be studying in Japan from april this year and i think i'm going to buy iphone 5s in Japan but i'm not sure the procedures to get iphone in Japan for foreigner. I heard that we have to sign a contract first and finish the contract in 2 years. Do they provide just 1 year contract? since i;m just study there for 1 year. And also do you know information about how much we have to pay to get iphone 5s when we get the phone, and monthly bill? Please give me some information. Thanks guys.

    I'd like to think buying in Japan would be like buying many other places - either via a subsidy (on contract for a period of time) or via cash (Yen or dollars). Other than that, it will be a tad difficult to completely answer your questions, especially without knowing what carrier you plan to do business with.

    Yes, you should be able to. That is, if Japanese carriers are anything like US and Canadian carriers.

    By the way, for being your (at least) second language, you speak English well.
