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?
Love your music, not your equipment.

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"
