Windows Phone

Hi, does the sim card work with Windows Phone 8.1? I know there is " iPhone, iPad and Android phones ONLY", but just checking if it's just outdated description. It is 3G phone, so it might work with the network.

Thank you


  • Hi Peter

    Unfortunately our SIM cards only work on iPhones, iPads and Android phones only. The other option would be to rent a pocket WiFi device and use the Internet on your phone that way. You can find more information on the pocket WiFi device here: https://www.japan-rail-pass.com/services/pocket-wifi

  • Hi,

    thank you for answer. Pocket wifi is too much expensive for two months.

    Is your sim card specifically locked for Lumia phones with Windows Phone system? Why is that? It's using the same band as android phones and I can also setup the apn setting.

    Anyway, looks like I will have to buy some cheap android phone :).
  • I tried with Windows Phone:
    Samsung ATIV S with Windows Phone 8.1: it doesn't work
    Lumia 650 with Windows 10 Mobile: it works

    I think it works only good with LTE-Phones. One day my LTE data allowance has been used up. The low speed (128kbps) was very very slow, a lot more slowly as 128kbps.
