Samsung Galaxi II In Japan?


I had a very bad experience in Italy 2013 after three weeks in Macedonia., when the Samsung phone (cell) the roaming turn ON and I was not aware until I came back to Toronto. Thanks god I did resolve the problem as I was charging big $$ money. From what I am reading I should not take it with me? What usually people from Europe or North America using when traveling in Japan. I was also told you can even replaced the syn-card let's say the canadian with a japanese one? is this true! Coming back from Tokyo to Paris I was told I can buy the local syncard . I intent to remove the syn-card when I leave Canada. Any suggestions? much appreciated.

If you turned off roaming you won't have data while outside Canada! Your phone is locked and cannot use a foreign SIM card (including B-Mobile above), unless you get your phone unlocked.

In the not too distant future yet another rant about how crappy B-mobile is, that it won't work with his/her android device.
