    I travel regulalry between UK USA and Japan. I would love to have an andriod that worked in all.

    Can I use a "Pay As You Go" SIM in all three places?

    I think I am best to buy 1 SIM for UK and 1 SIM for the USA. The best of the two would also work in Japan - I would like to use a local Japanese SIM card but unfortunately I know that Japan doesn't sell the western type of SIM cards.

    In summary, if you travelled a lot to these places, what would you do?

    Thanks a lot for your advice.

    GSM isn't the standard in Japan but IIRC there is some GSM coverage. How do you know that they don't have GSM? If you know that they don't then I don't understand why you're asking about getting a prepaid SIM in Japan. You can get a local phone or rely on VOIP if that's the case.
