Ease of use, economical

Really easy to use as what was described, just slot it in, change the APN and starts up instantly. If you have any problems at all, just contact Aidan or anyone of his team. They are very helpful and get back to you almost instantly. Very convenient as I could start browsing instantly upon arrival. No need to go looking for collection points.

Japanese 5GB Sim

The sim was fantastic. The speed was awesome and even though the sim was only meant to last for 7 days it's actually lasted for longer. Aidan from Sims Direct is also very easy to talk to and quick to respond. Would highly recommend the sim to anyone traveling to Japan.

First time user of SimsDirect!

Happy and it was easy to activate. Sim arrived quickly in the mail. I was able to easily activate it by putting it into my phone when i landed in Japan. Within a few minutes i had internet. I would definitely order from SimsDirect for my next trip! Thanks!

Must have in Japan

The Japan sim was so simple - we just put it in our phone & it was active and ready to use. It was great to have access to Google Maps to help us navigate around tokyo which otherwise would have been difficult.. We were able to share photos and keep in touch with our daughters using Whats App messaging. With the generous data allowance we were able to use the data on our phone just as we would at home. We cant recommend Aiden & the team highly enough & will be ordering sims through Sims Direct for all of our future trips. Next stop USA where we will try out Sims Direct US sim.

Trouble free data in Japan

The simsdirect Japan 15 day 5GB data only was very reliable and with readily availability of voice over internet and messaging aps like facetime skype and whatsapp, it provided all we needed. It was a huge help to have easy and ready access to data wherever we went. Even though there is a lot of wifi you cannot always rely on it, and it is often constrained and very open and unsecure.

How do I activate?

Step 1 Land in Japan

Step 2 Insert SIM card

Step 3 Turn on 'Data Roaming' in your mobile/network settings.

Step 4 Restart your device

You should connect within 5 minutes and you are all set. Happy travels!

What if I need help?

Our SIMs generally have no issues, however, nothing is a guarantee. Sometimes SIMs have technical issues that need troubleshooting.


If you land and your SIM does not work as expected then you need to follow these steps:


Step 1. Ensure you have followed all steps in your SIMs digital PDF guide.


Step 2. Reach out to us for support via Facebook live chat or email us at hello@simsdirect.com.au. We are active between 10am - 6pm AEDT.


Step 3. If our technical support cannot resolve your issue you will be entitled to our Money Back Guarantee and we will help you find a local option for the rest of your trip.

 

 

How can I make calls & texts?

This SIM does not come with calls or texts. However, you can use your data to make calls and texts.


We highly recommend using data applications as a smart alternative.


If you are wanting to call internationally:


We recommend using Skype. You can purchase credit and use it to make international calls to any number in the world at very affordable rates that are much cheaper than international call rates. $10 will get you roughly 250 minutes worth of international calls.


It's just like using your mobile but it uses internet data to make the call. Very handy! Works for landlines and mobile numbers.


If you are wanting to call and text mobile numbers internationally for free.


We recommend using any of the following free apps.


Whatsapp

Facebook Messenger

Google Hangouts

Viber

Skype


All of these apps are handy to use while travelling.

How do I check my balance?

To check your balance simply dial *118*#50

No recharges?

This SIM is not rechargeable as it is a one-time use product.


If you need more data or a longer duration you will need to purchase multiple SIM cards and swap them out as you go.


If you want more than 1 SIM card you can checkout with the code: MULTISIM10 for 10% off your order.


How do I find my new number?

You can find your mobile number when the SIM is inserted & active by going to your contacts and finding: My Number.

Is this enough data for me?

5GB of data over 15 days is suitable for web browsing, google maps, emails, social media and data messaging.


If you are planning on streaming videos or downloading large files then you may want to grab a second SIM card for more data.
