It will rack up charges if it's on and someone calls the number, leaves messages etc. I know someone that went to Hawaii and left his on for a week, never answered it or checked his messages until he got back on Japanese soil, his bill was over 1,000. You can take your phone anywhere....... just turn it off until you get back in Japan, that way you have a phone when your at the airport. iPad>skype>WiFi=free globally iPad>MagicJack>WiFi=free globally (rings like a telephone) I'm sure the newer iPhones will do that too.
