Billing and Payment of Charges

Information on the billing schedule for charges, how to confirm usage charges, and how to change your payment method, etc. is provided below.

Billing for Charges

Monthly charges and voice call, communications, and other charges are billed the month following the month of use. The method of providing information to customers for usage charges for mobile phones, etc. every month has been based on the e-billing Discount since charges for February 2015 (charges for use in January), and excluding some customers, issuance fees will apply if a customer wishes a paper billing statement, etc. to be sent by post.

Points to note regarding billing

  • If charges are exceptionally high compared to your normal usage, we may notify you of this before billing for charges.
  • You may be billed early depending on usage conditions.
  • If a payment is not confirmed after the payment deadline has elapsed, a "Notice of use suspension" may be sent in some cases.

How to Confirm Charges

Confirmation through e-billing

Instead of receiving notification of automatic payment and notification of charges by post, you can check your monthly usage charges and other charges at the Usage Charges Confirmation website via i-mode, sp-mode, or the Internet.

  • Information on billing has been provided through e-billing since February 2015, and customers that pay charges by automatic payment or credit card have e-billing subscriptions, excluding some customers.
