  • Status on service usage, such as call count, can be confirmed at My au or Customer Center(on status up to the previous day).
  • au International Calling Service sets a monthly use amount limitation(¥30,000(tax-exempt)) for its service.

  • This optional International Call Service does not include calls made from/received in overseas countries, SMS(C-mail), satellite/maritime phone calls or calls from certain phone numbers designated by au.

    • *When mobile phones subscribed to this optional service are used by connecting to communication equipment owened by the contractor or used to automatically transmit calls via software(except in cases approved by au).
