Chaku-moji can be set to flat rate

NTT DoCoMo Inc. will launch the flat rate option for the Chaku-moji service on September 1.

The service refers to the feature that displays on the called party's cellphone up to 10 letters signaling an incoming call.

The display costs the caller ¥5.25 every time she/he makes a call and sends letters to the called party.

However, the flat rate option―Chaku-moji Hodai―will allow you to use the service as many times as you like at ¥52.5 a month on the certain types of DoCoMo's cellphone.

I have never done to buy a ticket or something, because I have some concerns about privacy and security.

Although a purely made-in-Japan mobile phone is rarely seen outside Japan, the Japanese manufactures of mobile phone are struggle for entering the global market to survive.

The manufactures face the saturated domestic market, where the shipment of mobile phones has been running at an annual volume of 50 million over last few years.
