In the communication package you get two products: the Japan Travel SIM and the Brastel Card.
With the SIM card you get the data service to use your smartphone or tablet, and the Brastel Card allows you to place calls by using the 050 Free app.
As an option you can also get a phone number in Japan allowing you to receive incoming calls, and you may even continue using it after returning to your home country, with other SIM cards or Wi-Fi.
In addition, you can add extra data on the Japan Travel SIM card with credits from the Brastel Card in case you run out of the initial 1.5GB or 3GB of data.

Setup your phone

After activating the SIM card, please follow these instructions.


STEP 1
STEP 2
STEP 3
On App Store/ Play Store, search for 050 Free and install it.

iOS
Scratch off your Brastel Card.
On the setup screen enter your card’s user ID and SIP password, and tap on Save.
You may disable the app’s GSM button to place calls easier.
Go to Settings > Preferences > Controls, disable Show GSM button and press Done.

Top up the Brastel Card

Recharge the SIM card

You can recharge (top up) the SIM with more data without having to purchase a new SIM card.
First, recharge the Brastel Card enclosed in the package, and then recharge the SIM with credits from the Brastel Card.

To recharge the Brastel Card online, in the 050 Free app tap the globe icon (My Account) Payments, or sign in to My Account (online payments) on your PC; or use the enclosed coupons to pay at convenience stores.

To recharge the SIM, in the 050 Free app tap the globe icon (My Account) SIM RECHARGE, or sign in to My Account (SIM recharge) on your PC.

To sign in to My Account you will need the access code (user ID and PIN) printed on the back of your Brastel Card.

Available recharge plans

500MB
¥1,500
2GB
¥3,000
5GB
¥5,400
10GB
¥9,400
The SIM will initially expire 30 days from the usage start date. Every data recharge will extend the validity of the SIM until the end of the third month after the recharge. Each recharge will also extend the validity of any remaining (unused) data on the SIM up until the fifth month after the remaining data was added to the SIM. The SIM becomes invalid if no additional recharge is made before the final expiration date. Click here to see an example.
Prices are tax included.

SIM validity extension example

1.5GB (usage start)Expiration
Jan 01Jan 30
2GB (recharge)ExpirationExpiration
Jan 20Apr 30Jun 30
5GB (recharge)Expiration
Apr 10Jul 31

The example above illustrates how the validity of the SIM is extended when the SIM is recharged. For the sake of this example, we will assume no data is consumed.

  • A 1.5GB SIM starts being used from January 1. The 1.5GB will at first expire on January 30.
  • A recharge of 2GB is made on January 20. The added 2GB will expire on April 30. The first 1.5 GB's expiration date is also pushed back until April 30.
  • A recharge of 5GB is made on April 10. The added 5GB will expire on July 31. The expiration date of both the package's 1.5GB, and the 2GB from the first recharge will be pushed back only until June 30 (the fifth month after January, the month when they were added to the SIM).
  • If no further recharges are made until July 31, the SIM becomes invalid after this date.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How can I check the remaining data of my SIM card?
    The remaining data can be checked by accessing https://t.iijmio.jp/s/ or right after recharging the SIM card via My Account.
  2. I’m running out of data, what should I do?
    You can add extra data using the Brastel Card (enclosed in the package).
    Please see the Recharge the SIM card section above.
  3. Why can’t I recharge the SIM card?
    Please check if you have enough credit on the Brastel Card for the additional data plan you wish to add.
    Also, make sure the SIM card's PASSCODE1 and PASSCODE2 (TEL No. and PASSCODE in old type SIMs) have been entered correctly.
    If both cases above are correct, please access IIJ Support website (https://t.iijmio.jp/s/) and check if the SIM card has not expired.
  4. I’ve recharged the SIM card but it’s not reflecting on the balance. What should I do?
    In most cases the process takes less than five minutes. After some time, please check the balance by accessing https://t.iijmio.jp/s/. If the additional data still not reflecting, please contact Brastel Customer Service.
  5. Is it possible to extend the validity period?
    Yes. Every data recharge will extend the validity of the SIM until the end of the third month after the recharge was made.
