I now have a new unlocked iPhone 7 plus and thinking it might be a good idea to not bother setting up internet (thought about doing it through Docomo, the two year contract deal) in my apartment. So my questions.
Is this possible with any of the sim cards out there (IIJmio/Sakura mobile etc.) to use my iPhone as a personal hot spot/tethering? I’m not talking about a pocket wifi here, just the iphone. And I want this mainly so I have internet in my apartment to use my PC for about 2 or 3 hours each night (lot’s of Youtubing).
If the above is possible, would a 10 GB data only sim do the job. This would include the 2 or 3 hours every night Youtubing/surfing the net, and low to moderate use during the day checking the news, email, Skype, and line.
As for calling Japanese phones, I’m looking at using Skype (thus only getting the data only sim, but as long as I can get a Japanese phone number. I believe you can pay extra to get one from Skype but not sure. Has anyone does this?
