Japanese Cell phones: Keitai Denwa

A brief introduction into the magical world of Japanese cellphones, or “keitai denwa” (携帯電話). My provider is Softbank, one of the biggies in Japan. Hope I don’t bore you guys to tears. Sorry this one’s so late/crappy. Enjoy!

    I always wondered why Japanese phones are not marketed in Europe and US , we only have ugly black phones here back in EUROPE

    After the first time I saw this video, I became obsessed with Japanese cell phones.
    When my brother went to Japan, he came back with a Japanese cell phone.
    I really wanted it.. But he refused to give it to me TT___TT

    .. Your so brave!!! @@

  8. brotherannie says:

    @MelodyYhin Haha, no, I’ve never been afraid of bugs.

  9. MelodyYhin says:

    …. Ouch. Did it scare you? Haha I think I would be better seeing those rather than my fear. I think if I saw ‘those’ i would scream haha — thanks for the information and replying me! :)

  10. brotherannie says:

    @MelodyYhin I remember the wasps and beetles being pretty big.

  11. MelodyYhin says:

    Okayyy thanks for the information and when you meant by huge insects any examples? :/ haha and thanks again for replying! ;)

  12. brotherannie says:

    @MelodyYhin Yeah, you can email someone’s phone from an actual email, I believe. And I don’t know about spiders, but in general, Japan has HUGE insects. I don’t remember seeing many spiders though.

  13. MelodyYhin says:

    Oooo that means normal email provider can still mail the softbank mail? Or docomo too right? Haha, and no problem, also, does japan have errr, HUGE spiders? :/ i hate them :( so yeah, typing that word scares me somehow hehe -don’t mind me —

  14. brotherannie says:

    @MelodyYhin They aren’t from yahoo, gmail or any other normal email provider, usually your phone email addresses are from your provider, so like blahblahblah @softbank.com, or something. And yes, that’s a great idea for a video! I think I will. I’m not in Japan right now, but I’m moving back in August for a job. Only thing it’s not in a place where it gets super cold or where it snows, so it might not be all that interesting but I will make it nonetheless. Thanks for the suggestion!

  15. MelodyYhin says:

    Hi, Just wanna tell you, Im not bored watching your videos and you made me laugh a few times somehow xD, Really love your videos. Could you do a video about japan when it is winter? How to keep yourself warm or how cold it is? — hehe though I also want to ask, the japanese phone e-mails, are they yahoo mail only? Is there like hotmail or gmail?

  20. 827Bunny says:

    how long did it take you to learn Japanese ?

  21. willfox12345 says:

    Why do they all have flip phones?

  22. confused6thworld says:

    Is it possible for some one in America with an American phone to text a Japanese person with a Japanese phone? And I do not understand the numbers/emails. My phone says I dont enter the numbers in when I try to call Japan numbers so I don’t understand how to enter them in my phone. Can you explain?

  23. YamiAlex224 says:
