The handsets are being offered â€œSIM-freeâ€, which is unusual for Japan, as the carrier only sells the device on contract. The prices are not too steep either, with the â€œbuy it nowâ€ price hovering around $650.
Japanese sellers do not normally ship overseas, but there are services such as yahoojapanauctions.com which are designed to make this easier.
The IS12T is a dual-mode CDMA/GSM handset, which would theoretically allow the device to be imported elsewhere in the world.
