I’ve been with Softbank for nearly ten years and decided to stay with them for the iPhone because their plan was cheaper than au’s. Anyway, I think it was the 27th or 28th of March when I applied. The salesman said “So you can get started on the (unlimited) data plan right away, I’ll backdate your entry to the data plan to the first of the month. Otherwise you’d have to wait until next month.” How helpful, I thought.

… until I got the bill next month. Yep, charged 4200 yen for a “full month” (three days’ worth) of data. If he had mentioned -that- was going to happen, I would have just waited the three days!

Joke’s on you, though, Softbank. Once I’m finished paying these two years of contract fees, you can fart dust, I’m off to another carrier!

There must be a way to make the bills easier to understand, and there must be a reason why this is not done.
