the PHS system is great, yet suffers from an image problem. If you need phone, it is great... if you want to surf the web, you should look somewhere else. I have enjoyed the low costs since the beginning... I don't think they will disappear since this is the system that is used by doctors and hospitals... and seems to be gaining a bit in the student use since parents are finally getting tired of paying outrageous bills for their kid's phone.

PHS does have great sound quality and their early problems of not being able to hand off to the next antenna if you are going above walking speed is long since a thing of the past. It would be a shame if it were to go away.

Sad. I was a wilcom user for 4 years and saved a lot from unnecessary keitai charges. I only changed to au coz my job changed requiring me to travel to the country side where Willcom reception was poor.

Finally a reason to get an iPhone. Though I was very satisfied with PHS.

VERY poor management. You are in a deflationary economy where people are looking to spend less money, concentrating on budget goods. In these times, a mobile phone is almost considered a necessity too. Yet Willcom couldn't capitalize on this opportunity.. what were they doing??

Willcom rolled out the red carpet for eMobile and allowed them two years to take over the mobile broadband market. I switched over to eMobile last year and pay much less, have MUCH faster internet and got a good netbook for 100 yen.

Sorry, buy cry me a river, Willcom.
