I'm in desperate need of a Japanese NTT Docomo nano SIM card for my iPhone 6. I reset it, and now it needs the SIM to activate. Apple and Docomo both tell me it's the only way, so I'm hoping someone has one I can use for 30 seconds before I start ordering stuff from overseas.


In Wellington, but can pay for shipping within NZ for a chance to get out of this walled-garden carrier-imposed nightmare.


I would be incredibly and eternally grateful if you could lend me one, or have any friends who just came from Japan you could ask.

It is locked to the Japanese network, yes. No NZ SIM has worked, and no Japanese SIM from a different carrier has worked. 


Hence, the long-shot post hoping someone has the exact SIM card needed.
