Your Japan SIM card will automatically activate on the "Country Arrival Date" you provide us (this should be the same date of arrival as per your travel itinerary). If your travel dates change or cancel, you need to notify us prior to the scheduled activation.
When you arrive in Japan, insert the SIM into your handset. The SIM will self activate once your phone receives cellular signal. Your handset should auto configure to the correct APN. If the APN does not auto configure, use the below APN.
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
Note: Only manually set up the APN if automatic APN configuration has not been successful.

We do not recommend using this SIM for data heavy tasks such as streaming content or gaming purposes.

All of our Prepaid Travel SIMs work in areas where cellular signal is available. At open sea, when you're outside range of network towers, cellular signal may be weak or not available. However coverage will be available closer to port.
