Activation, Validity and Phone Number
This SIM card is automatically activated on first use in any covered country. Validity is counted from the exact time of first use, and ends at the same time at the end of the validity period.
Japanese phone number will be provided by SMS when you reach Japan. After your order, an email will be sent to you describing the process. Should you require your Japan phone number before departure you need to pre-activate your SIM card. Simply reply to that email telling us the date you would like to pre-activate before travel. Your validity in that case will begin on activation, so please activate only a day or two before departure.
People anywhere in the world can dial your Japan number directly to reach you, for example, +81 13 12345678.
Making Calls through Reverse Call
This SIM uses reverse call for outbound calls. When you dial, the call disconnects and you receive a return call connecting you with the number you want to speak to.
If you fail to get a call back, redial the number followed by the “#” key.
Making calls to India:
Remember to add the country code when making calls to India. Check that the number begins with +91 before dialling. E.g. to call India number 022 24216344, dial +91 22 24216344
Making local calls
To make local calls use the full international format. E.g. to call a Japan number from any country use (for example) +81 90 12345678.
Please note Japan emergency number 119 & 110 etc will NOT work on this card.
