AU SIM card.

I have an au smartphone, but the phone isn't the greatest. I am thinking of purchasing a used au smartphone. My question is: Will I be able to use the SIM card I have now in the used phone and still be able to call people and use my au data plan?

    Yes, if it is the same carrier then I think it will be fine. A better solution is to buy a new SIM free smartphone on the internet, it should cost just a little bit more that a used smartphone.

    Yes! It's cheaper to buy used au phone though the problem with those used phone is usually the battery.

    Thank you for your answers. Though I haven't do it yet, I have decided to buy a dual sim free phone and see what happens. A student of mine uses a zen phone and said that when she travels to another country, she buys a SIM card at the airport on arrival and pops it in.seems to be working fine for her.

    If you are going to use it to another au smart phone then yes it will definitely work.

Your coffee recommendations for Shibuya/Shinjuku and surrounds!

I first visited Japan in 2012, and found that coffees other than Starbucks, Doutor or Boss were pretty hard to come by. Having lived in Melbourne for the past five years, I have had the privilege of having some of the best coffee at my doorstep which has unfortunately caused me to become quite discerning with my coffee choices haha. I know that coffee culture has changed quite significantly in Tokyo in recent years, and that there has been an explosion of international and Japanese roasteries popping up consistently. I'm interested to know more about your favourite kissaten or coffee shops, or any that you've found interesting!

Trip to Miyazaki this summer. Any recommendations?

Heading to Miyazaki, Kyushu this summer (4 nights, staying in Aoshima). Any recommendations on places to eat would be much appreciated. Also, any sightseeing spots? The priority is surfing but we'll have a car and will still have time to travel around a bit. Cheers!
