A bit tough to install profile on some iPhones and bandwidth can be slow. But it works and I’m satisfied overall. Note that you need to delete the lightpocket profile under settings/general/profile before you can reuse your original SIM.

We rented the 500MB WiFi. As far as connectivity and speed it was a great device. The device was mailed to our hotel. We mainly used it to get around using google maps, google translate, email and web searches. We exceeded the data limit two of the days then the speed slowed as expected. The rest of the trip we only turned it on when we were searching for something or lost which happened a lot. At home we rarely exceed 250MB of data so we thought the 500MB plan would be more than enough, but I guess we underestimated the data we would need. Next time we will go with the unlimited plan. Overall a good device at a reasonable price

Overall I am really satisfied with LightPocket. The process in receiving and returning it is so smooth. The wifi connection during my trip in Osaka and surrounding area is excellent. More than that, the battery last more than 12 hours. Amazing. Highly recommended.

This was my first time using LightPocket and I was amazed how easy it was to receive and return. No paperwork or wait needed like a local store at airprts. It was delivered to my parents' home before my arrival and I just put it in the mail before my flight back to the U.S. at the end. I will be ordering again next time! The Pocket Wifi was very useful on my stating Japan ! Excellent customer service! .

I used the Pocket WiFi SoftBank Unlimited 15 Days Rental. It was amazing. I had it running pretty much all day and it lasted for the whole time we were out. We would go back to rest in the early evening and charge it back up so it would run all evening. The connection was as amazing. Could stream videos without an issue. Even worked in the subways when at the subway stops to check to make sure we were on the right route. Would definitely use it the next time I am in Japan. The customer service is great also. I wrote the wrong date on a comment and someone from the office emailed me to confirm which date I wanted the pocket wifi. Just drop it off at any mailbox to return it. Easy as can be.

Excellent customer service! The pocket WiFi was easy to use. We were in the countryside in Nagano for a part of the trip and it still worked just fine. I'm glad to have purchased a pocket wifi while traveling in Japan. It made getting around and sending messages back home super easy.

Fantastic. Pick up and return was simple. The pocket wifi was small and easy to use. We were travelling to very remote parts of Japan and it performed well for both coverage and battery life. A great solution when 2 people need to be connected at the same time. I would gladly recommend this service and will be using it again when we return.

On arrival at Kansai/Osaka we went up one floor to the Post Office and exchanged the email from Light Pocket for this great powerful little device. We switched it on and entered the password and that was it we were connected to the internet. It has a long battery life up to 9hours and definitely saved us tens of Pounds. When leaving it was even simpler we just popped it in the post box in the prepaid envelope. Just brilliant, I recommend you get one without any hesitation. 5Star *

The device worked very well. It always worked when we were on land, the only time we didn't get a signal was when we were on a cruise ship far from shore. Battery life was excellent; the device never ran out of power even when being used most of the day. It was small and convenient, easy to put in our daypack or camera bag or in a pocket if needed. Picking up and returning the device was easy. I would definitely use the LightPocket wifi unit again.

The light pocket WiFi was well worth having on our trip round Japan. There wa much more WiFi available than we expected in hotels and in some towns but a number of times we found ourselves needing information or translation when none was available. For example we were able to book a hotel and car while travelling on a train. Some trains had WiFi but not the Shikansen, surprisingly. Our Japanese grinds also found it useful to hook up to. We would recommend this service which was efficient and good value. Easy to return and we had it delivered to our friend’s house.For us it was better than having a sim as our phones only take one card.

All in all I was very happy with the service. I had no problems with delivery and the simcard worked perfectly. The only drawback I experienced was that the instructions were not extremely clear on how to adjust my phone (iphone) to have the mobile network details (APN details) setup. It did not say I should download the profile details while connected to Internet from another network (possibly a Wifi). I strictly followed the instructions, so I replaced my simcard but I could not download the profile (as my mobile network was not setup properly at that moment). It took me quite a long time and many attempts until I realized that I perhaps try downloading the profile over wifi. I almost returned the simcard for that. I strongly suggest you make this detail clear in your otherwise quite clear instructions.

This service worked perfectly for me - it was especially helpful to be able to send the package to a post office rather than a hotel address. The device worked well consistently and was invaluable during my trip.
