World standard, huh?
I was dismayed to find out that Fido’s GSM network doesn’t yet work in Japan, even with a fancy-pants “world phone“. The good news is that I can rent a fancy NTT DoCoMo handset, and experience the bells and whistles of i-Mode firsthand!
… And the bad news is that friends and family who want to reach me overseas will have to pay long distance. 🙁
