Does anyone import any handphone (Sharp) from Japan which can be used in Singapore?? ???
Those handphones whereby the screen can be rotated horizontally to make it widescreen.

Isn't Japan using 3G network now? Is that still considered CDMA? So if you have a 3G SIM card, will it work with any Japanese phone?
...the thing that is in our culture, the moral values we live by are based upon achieving and winning and not just being human with all our beauty, talents, flaws and silly side included. This is the one reason why we don't check what we feel and need first when we are not at ease, but instead we look at the person next to us and we try to reach their goals instead of ours...

Think only Softbank for the GSM iPhone.  Rest of the big guns, Docomo, Vodafone., etc. still on CDMA.  The GSM phones are mostly old fashion types........... ???

In Japan, most of the phone now are 3G. However, it is "sim lock", so it cannot be used anywhere, unless you can break the "sim lock"
