You can have multiple plans on your iPad by signing up on your iPad with multiple carriers, adding multiple eSIM plans, and inserting a SIM card in the nano-SIM tray. To switch between active plans, go to Settings > Cellular Data and tap the plan you want to use under Cellular Plans.

Simcard Geek has other SIM plans available. There is free shipping to many countries, or pick-up at the post office at Narita Airport or at other major airports in Japan. Fair usage applies, and speeds may be temporarily reduced if more than 3GB is used in a day.

Called Japan Travel SIMs, IIJmio SIMs are available at airports and electronic stores countrywide. Prices are approximate, and the maximum (theoretical) speed is 788Mbps. SIMs can be recharged with extra data. Chinese language call center support is available.

Runs on the NTT DoCoMo network. SIM cards can be recharged with extra data. Delivery costs 370 to Japan airport post office, or 520 to a hotel/other accommodation. You can buy them at electronics stores and Aeon, too. SIM cards must be returned after use.

While data-only SIMs are often the default for travel these days, there are strong arguments for getting a SIM that allows you to make and receive calls and send/receive texts, from an actual Japanese phone number.

No worries. Just look for a BIC Camera store (link in Japanese, but Shibuya, Shinjuku and Ikebukuro have quite a few) or Yodobashi Camera (also in Japanese) and grab yourself whatever Japan SIM card seems like the best deal. Bic SIM cards are fairly popular, we hear. For more information, see our guide on where to buy a SIM card in Tokyo.

Not at all! You can be super cheap about data and use free wifi from teH giAnt Corporations. First up, a coffee chain that I understand is quite popular with the kids, has free wifi, providing you register at the link above. Then, just pop into a store and away you go!

First up, if you have more than one device that requires the net, or a few of you are traveling together, you may want to consider a portable wifi device from a rental provider like Ninja Wifi, who give our readers a 20% discount. You can pick these travel routers up and drop them off at airports for convenience, and they have generous data allowances. For a more in-depth take, see our popular guide to renting a travel wifi router in Japan.

AND FINALLY, you may be pleased to know that some mobile networks outside Japan offer cheap roaming packages. For example, data is free in Japan for T-Mobile USA customers on one of their plans. Read the fine print carefully though, as your data speeds may be heavily throttled!

If a trip to the UK happens to be on the cards too, or you just want to wince at how pricey Japan is in comparison, check out our London Cheapo Guide to UK prepaid SIM cards and where to buy a SIM card in London.

With over 750,000 readers each month, Tokyo Cheapo is the site of choice for value hunters who want their yen to go further in Tokyo. We cover all the basics including things to do in Tokyo, how to get from Narita airport to Tokyo, which JR rail pass to choose, getting a SIM card and pocket wifi.

  • ID card printers typically use ribbons that are made up of different panels for printing colors and providing other functions. Panels are typically identified by a letter or two with the most common dye sublimation panels being:Y = Yellow dye sublimation panel

  • M = Magenta dye sublimation panel

  • C = Cyan dye sublimation panel

  • K = Black resin panel (K = Key = Black)

  • O = Overlay panel

  • The YMC (Yellow, Magento and Cyan) panels are used together for full-color printing and composite black text. For crisp, black text (e.g. for printing barcodes), then a ribbon with a Black resin (K) panel can be used.Other common panels areO = Overlay (aka Overcoat) panel for providing a protective finish for added card protection

  • T = Topcoat (same as an Overlay panel)Uv = Ultraviolet panel for printing text and graphics that can only be seen under an ultra-violet light

  • I = Inhibitor panel for restricting where text and graphics can be printed

Another type of ribbon is a "Half-Panel Color Ribbon" where the Yellow, Yellow, Magenta and Cyan panels are half the size of the regular panels but the other panels are full-sized panels (e.g. a "ymcKO" ribbon). These ribbons can provide cost-savings where color is only required on up to half the card with black available for any part of the card).

A Datacard YMCKT-KT ribbon is used for dual-sided card printing. The first five panels are for the front side of the card and are used for full-color printing with the yellow (Y), magenta (M) and cyan (C) panels while the black (K) panel is used printing text and barcodes along with the topcoat (T) panel which provides a thin, clear protective overlay. On the back of the card, the black (K) panel is used for printing black monochrome text and barcodes along with a topcoat (T).

SIM cards come in a few different sizes. Google Fi uses a nano SIM card. If your device uses something different, you may need a SIM adapter. A SIM adapter helps your smaller nano SIM card fit into a larger SIM card tray on your device. You can purchase an adapter online or at many electronic retailers.

Most manufacturers list the SIM card size for each device on their website so you can search to find out what size you need. For example, if your device uses a micro SIM you should buy a nano SIM to micro SIM adapter. If your device uses a nano SIM, you don't need an adapter.

Depending on your carrier, you could be able to buy mobile data through your Settings app on your phone. Your carrier sets the prices and choices. You use your regular payment method with your carrier.

Very much recommended are international sim cards that cover the USA, more about that later. But the cheapest way to stay connected when traveling to the States is an e-sim card for the USA, more about those below.

As a full time world traveler trying to visit every country in the world and visited more than 150 countries as of April 2023 let me tell you that buying a local prepaid sim card in the country you are visiting is the cheapest way to have data on your phone. The network coverage will be the best, the data speed maximum and locals calls are included and often unlimited.

In total I wrote more than 200 local prepaid sim card guides for places and countries like: Canada, Mexico, Italy, Germany, Israel, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Turkey, Thailand, Vietnam, Panama, South Africa, Europe, Saudi Arabia, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Colombia and so on.

Prepaid USA sim card prices are NOT competitive, for cheaper USA sim card deals check out international prepaid sim cards with data to stay connected when traveling in the USA or e-sims card for the USA.

Buying a sim card for the USA is easy, it takes just a couple minutes and you are connected straight away, it is like plug and play. You put the sim card in your phone and it instantly works. However, you have to make sure your phone is unlocked if you want to use a prepaid sim card or an e-sim card abroad.

Traveltomtom recommends a T-Mobile sim card for the USA. It has a very extensive 5G network and for $50 you get unlimited data for 30 days, it is cheaper than AT&T. However, the best USA sim card deals can be found online, see below.

There are international sim cards with global network coverage in 2023 that we recommend. In the link you will find a review and comparison of the best international sim cards for traveling in 2023. You you can order online before your trip to the US and get them shipped to your home address.

Make sure your phone is unlocked, before buying a sim card for the USA. Foreign sim cards only work in unlocked phones. If you are not sure about this ask your provider in your home country before your trip, this also counts for e-sim cards.

The most convenient and easiest way to stay connected when traveling to the USA is getting an e-sim card that works in the USA. You can easily order them online within less than a minute. You will then receive a code on your current mobile phone, you enter it and your e-sim card is activated. Check out these amazing e-sim card deals for the USA:

As you can see the last option is the best e-sim card deal for the USA for those using a lot of data. As for now there are still no e-sim cards for the USA available that also support calling and texting. I am sure this will soon change and I will of course updated everything immediately because the demand for an e-sim card for the USA including calls and texting is high!

Unlike any other country around the world it is NOT easy to find sim card shops or resellers at international arrivals in most of the airports in the USA. I still can't get my head around this! Like for real America? At Houston Airport the guy from the information desk was like, uh what... a prepaid sim card?

That said, I am determined to continue writing sim card guides for USA airports and already started with the Big Apple. Flying to New York? Check out my guides for buying a sim card at New York JFK Airport or buying a sim card at Newark Airport in New Jersey. Many more coming in 2023. The newest addition is my guide for buying a sim card at Miami Airport.

I have written uncountable sim card guides for international airports: Paris, London, Rome, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Madrid, Dublin, Johannesburg, Dubai, Riyadh, Tel Aviv, Istanbul, Cairo, Panama City, Bangkok, Bali, etc. At every international airport worldwide you will find sim card shops next to car rental companies and money exchangers, unfortunately not in the USA! In the last years I landed in Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas/Forth Worth, New York JFK, Newark, Miami and it was a disaster. 041b061a72
