NTT DoCoMo mobile phones are used in 98 percent of all criminal activity conducted through rental handsets in Japan, according to a National Police Agency study. Softbank Mobile and KDDI impose limits on the number of mobile communication lines issued to corporate customers, based on their size, but DoCoMo has no such restraints, a major reason behind the widespread criminal use of its handsets. In addition to imposing upper limits on the number of communication lines, Softbank Mobile checks the purpose of handset use when concluding contracts with corporate clients. In addition, rental phone companies are required to sign a letter of understanding with Softbank Mobile obligating them to conduct thorough identity verification checks of their customers.
