Cancellation Within Eight Days
Improvement of acceptance system for cancellation within eight days
DOCOMO has improved the acceptance system for cancellation within eight days as a result of receiving an administrative directive from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications due to failure to process cancellation within eight days when the contract duplicate copy has been signed. For more details, refer to Improvement of Acceptance System for Cancellation within Eight Days (in Japanese only).
The following describes the procedure to cancel your subscription within eight days.
Customers who carried out any of the following procedures under a personal name are eligible.
- Newly subscribed to the Xi "crossy" service or FOMA service
- Changed the subscription from the FOMA service to the Xi "crossy" service or from the Xi "crossy" service to the FOMA service
- Changed the billing plan or apply for a discount service (A customer who carried out the procedure to change the billing plan and apply for a discount service is not eligible for cancellation within eight days for the reason of the signal reception state.)
Any concluded sales agreement for a device (mobile phone and its accessories and any other products purchased at the same time), etc. that was concluded pertaining to a procedure above will also be cancelled together with the subscription.
