And things didn't change much when i tried again on another visit with a Bold. So, glad it worked for you, didn't work for the rest of us. docomo's VOICE coverage is exceptional, not data. If docomo works better for you so be it. Camp with docomo next time you're in Nippon, no biggie.
As for the 8703 not working in Japan docomo actually LAUNCHED the Blackberry service in Japan with the 8703. And since i'm away from home to post the pixorz of the docomo girlies this link would do for now: NTT DoCoMo launching BIS in Japan | BlackBerry Cool
ps: Please stop being a prick. I do like you and i get messages from mods not to reply to your posts. Work with me on this, please? Pretty please with sugar on top?
DoCoMo launched service with the 8707h, NOT the 8703. They're NOT the same device.
