7.Purchasing mobile phone in China
you can bring a mobile which bought in japan to China, you, but many type of phone which bought in japan do not correspond to the band of China mobile (frequency). Another carrier (China Unicom, China Telecom) seems to cover the area nationwide, but in China, China mobile is the biggest career. recently the price of the phone is not so high, so we can buy it in china. I think that it is more convenient because it can use that phone just for in China. However,I can not recommend too cheap phone(300 to 500 RMB). It freezes, poor sensor sensitivity, operability is not good. If the specification is moderate (around 700 to 900 RMB), I feel stress less. Even with the same model, there are terminals that correspond to bands (frequencies) of the three major carriers and terminals that only support bands (frequencies) of one carrier. Therefore, when purchasing mobile phones, terminals compatible with three major carriers It is better to choose.Even if net shops such as Tao Bao can not be used, you check the price beforehand, you can compare it with the price at the shop front, so let's price negotiate. After purchasing a phone, we go to the store of the phone company with a phone, passport, cash. Phone company are like AT&T or verizon in USA. The SIM card is basically free. Since various plans are prepared by career, we choose the plan that we would like to contract then pay for several months fee. For example, China mobile 2 GB, the basic price is 50 RMB. they will automatically withdraw 50 Yuan per month from the balance charged. when they will inform us by short message that the balance is insufficient a few days before payment, Let pay at store by cash or with app by web money. If it is not possible to withdraw on the payment date, you will be unable to temporarily use the phone and it will be troublesome, so be careful.
