Hope they hurry up with it. Softbank are so scummy with this, promising they can unlock it and then turning around and saying they dont offer that "service".

I find the make Japanese friends part hilarious. I think it goes without saying that most people living in the Japanese countryside (or hell, even just less than major Japanese cities) would love to do that. Doing so is the hard part. Outside of the bigger cities meeting Japanese people is TOUGH. Japanese just tend not to socialise outside of their established groups and in the countryside there are no places people meet so...

you're lucky in that you had experience before you went on jet. For those of us who are fresh graduates, especially those who tried looking for a real job back home before coming, the concern of "What does this mean for the future?", "Will I ever get a real job?" looms large throughout our time in Japan.
