    hi there,

    are there any working tool for Japan (android or Blackberry)?

    i refer to virtual NFC payment Cards like
    PASSMO, SUICA, ICOSA, etc. etc. etc.

    in Japan it's quite popular to pay goods and train services by phone and i'm tired buying so many nfc Cards.

    Any experiences? Howto?

    Yes, I'd like to know - Side loading apps may work but from what Ive read on japanmobiletech about NFC - Japanese NFC systems can either be one which is only for japan invented by sony or a hybrid system (both sony and overseas). The NFC in Apple products is not compatible.

    this has some good info on NFC in Japan

    a post from canuckcam on another cb thread..."Many newer RFID cards use 13.56MHz, the same frequency as NFC on our Blackberries. Hong Kong Octopus card, Suica in Japan, HID iClass passes, all are 13.56MHz so in theory they should work. But in actuality they don't because there are technology-issues (eg. protocols, bitrate, encryption, etc.) and licensing issues."

    Is mastercard widespread where you live? I got an nfc sim from my carrier and a virtual mastercard paypass card from my bank to do payments with my phone

    NFC payment systems are country specific needing agreements with banks, payment processor and carrier. People in Japan probably scratch their heads when you mention Blackberry. They don't even measure marketshare there so sadly you're out of luck.
