NTT DOCOMO to Discontinue 2G mova Service

NTT DOCOMO will stop accepting new enrollments for its 2G mova mobile phone service nationwide on November 30. The company also announced that it will waive the normal charge of 2,100 yen (including tax) for any mova user who transfers to a 3G FOMA subscription beginning August 8.

NTT DOCOMO said that given that mova subscribers have been steadily migrating to its popular 3G service, FOMA, the company has decided to eventually discontinue mova and concentrate on FOMA. The timing of the mova service's actual termination will be decided depending on market factors such as how fast mova users continue to migrate to FOMA.

Additionally, DOCOMO will stop accepting applications for its car phones by the end of November.
