So, my new phone is a Lumix Smartphone by Samsung from SoftBank. Specs are in the link:
|Doesn't it look pretty~ And I'm not taking off the back sticker|
until I understand what it says. Which, come to think of it, may
be a pretty long time.
|This is how I charge my phone. And although you can't see|
it here, my wallpaper moves (it's so cute!)
The most important information to know when buying a handphone is this: if you're below twenty, you need a guarantor. I was really lucky that my senior signed my form (thanks Christial!). Incidentally, you can download the form from the Internet (but it's all in Japanese). Basically, it helps if you have seniors there because you need their help for stuff like this.
My phone took 6 hours to get ready (if I remember correctly, the SIM card is embedded in the phone itself, not a card you can take out), so we went around the place for a while. I finally stepped into, and fell in "love" with, Book Off, a very large used-bookstore chain (whose books like exactly like new!) that sadly, doesn't have an outlet within walking distance. The books are much cheaper than a regular bookstore too! You can see the books I bought here.
