GTN Mobile is specialized in mobile services for foreign residents in Japan. As a foreign resident in Japan, you may face issues such as inflexible payment options, difficulties in understanding the plans, etc. when looking for suitable mobile services.
What makes GTN unique compared to other providers are:
There is no contract period
Easy application process
Flexible payment methods*
Applicants are able to apply for a credit card**
*In Japan, mobile bills are generally postpaid. This will be problematic when you leave the country because you will be required to close your bank account (which you may set as a debit account for the mobile bills) before you leave the country. You can negotiate with GTN Mobile about how to make your final payment. They might be able to suggest what payment method will be most suitable for you.
**It is difficult to get a credit card if you don't have a credit history earned in Japan. However, GTN will be your guarantor for a credit card if you are a subscriber to their service. On top of that, you will get a discount on the monthly mobile bills for having a credit card from them.
DTN Mobile is recommended for those who are looking for sim cards with reasonable plans, multilingual support, a simple application process, etc.
