Important Information (Semi flat-rate option / Flat-rate option)

  • In order for SoftBank voice calls to be a more convenient communication method for our many customers, certain numbers/services are not applicable towards the unlimited/free (semi) flat-rate voice call option. If SoftBank determines that a voice call is interfering with its infrastructure (for example, continuous long voice calls over a period of time), the voice call may be disconnected.
    (Excluded from unlimited voice calls)
    Global roaming voice call costs, international voice call costs, SoftBank satellite phone service, InfoDial service, voice call costs to special numbers that are charged (such as numbers that begin with 0180 and 0570), directory assistance service (104), voicemail playback of Voicemail Plus, and other specific numbers are excluded from the unlimited voice call plans. Other numbers designated by SoftBank (voice calls to specific telephone numbers connected with a telephone service provided by another company) are not subject to the Terms of Service of this service, and are excluded from the unlimited voice call plans.
