It is possible to use your iPhone in Japan, but you will have to acquire an international calling and data plan to avoid hefty charges when you return from your trip. This is because making calls outside of the United States will rack up roaming charges, unless you have a special service plan that avoids those charges.

  1. 1

    Call 611 on your iPhone to contact the AT&T customer service hotline.

  2. 2

    Talk to a customer service representative from AT&T and ask to add the international plan to your AT&T account. Despite having a monthly rate, the international World Traveler plan, will save money on every call you make on your iPhone from Japan.

  3. 3

    Travel to Japan and you'll be able to use your iPhone as you did in the United States without having to pay high roaming charges. Japan uses 3G networks, just like the iPhone does. Moreover, Japan has a many Wi-Fi hotspots that your iPhone can use to connect to the Internet, instead of using the 3G network.
