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.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
