i will be moving to Japan soon. i was wondering if a bb7 device would work over there. Has anyone used one there? i looked online at ntt docomos phones but there newest model is a bb6 model.
i want to buy one from at&t then hopefully be able to use it there
Japan supports the 3G standard on several carriers, so your main consideration will probably be whether you can get a US sourced device unlocked to use a Japanese carrier's SIM. There is usually a delay between a new model hitting the streets, and the third party unlockers getting the codes to unlock the new model.
If you want to use Japanese fonts you will also need to check if your preferred device can support them in the new OS.
FYI, when I was in Japan this past Oct, my TMO 9700 picked up 3G with breeze. The 3G speed was so fast. I feel no big different comparing to the 4G from TMO in the US now that I have 9810... Well we all know most 4G in the US is just a 4th generation, not LTE.
