    What are yall's thoughts on the mobile providers in Japan?

    What's your favorite and why?

    I'm with DoCoMo now but I am planning on switching to Softbank when the next iPhone is released. If it turns out to be crap, then I may just opt for an Android phone.

    Japan's domestic 'clam-shell' phones used to be uber-sweet. They have fallen behind. Kind of like the Japanese game market.

    Softbank here as well. I've had my account with them since the Vodafone days.

    Maybe it should be: "If you don't have an iPhone, which provider do you use?"

    Most of us have iPhones - at least I know most of the staff does. That means we all have Softbank, haha. :)

    I'm fairly certain that I came to Japan just after Vodafone subscribers were taken over by Softbank. I had a Toshiba flip phone up until the iPhone came out.
