Please only configure the APN upon arrival in Japan. Do not configure the APN when your Australian SIM is plugged in, as the APN will be pointing to the Softbank network. Once you return from Japan, simply delete the installed APN configuration from your phone.

- If your handset is dual SIM, ensure only the Softbank SIM is inserted in the primary SIM slot of your handset.
- Enable Data Roaming and 3G/4G/LTE Data
