    Hi. I'm going to Japan for a month, and I need a new phone. I use Tmobile here, so I will be getting a GSM phone. My question is, should I go ahead and get an unlocked phone here in the US, or wait until I get to Japan? Do they have better phones over there, or does it matter? Japan used to be WAY ahead in cell phone technology, but IDK if that's still the case. Android OS is a necessity.

    I tether/hotspot my phone for data use here, and may there as well(especially if there are unlimited data plans). One feature I'm looking for(perk, not necessity) is the ability to plug in an external antenna for better network reception in rural areas.

    Anybody have any advice? Thanks.
