Cellphone in Japan

Hey guys, I have a huge doubt about cellphones in japan.

I'm going to stay there for a year so I will make some questions:

- Can anyone explain to me how that mail/softbank thing works? My teacher told me they use that instead of sms.

- If I take my iphone 5S from here (unlocked and using a japanese sim after making a contract with internet and everything) will I be able to config the softbank mail system on it? or should I buy a new phone to use it there?

1) Ask him/her. These days young people use online apps such as "Line"

2) you use your own phone
