I managed to sign up on mixi without having to provide a Japanese cell phone email address or getting an invite by signing up with my .edu email address. ^^ I still don't know a lot of Japanese to navigate smoothly around that site yet, but I'm using the Rikaichan online Japanese dictionary addon to help me out.

oh, and my mixi url is http://mixi.jp/show_profile.pl?id=33445766&f

EDIT: Okay, please stop asking me if I can make a mixi account for you. You are only allowed one account per email, and you CANNOT make more than one .edu email addresses. You are only given what you get when you registered for college/university. That's how the college/university email system works.

Really? Could you help me, if you have time.
When I try to register it takes me to the Japanese cell phone e-mail address page -_-

Here's a tutorial I posted up on deviantart. However, the image isn't showing up, so you have to click the Download Image button on the right.

Are you in college, by the way? The only way around the cell phone email address page is if you have a college email address.

Yeah it isn't showing up, what is the link to the tutorial? :)
Im not in college, I finished a while ago and they removed me from the college system. But I think I can use my sister's college e-mail address.

Im from the UK, not sure if the e-mail address would work :/

Can I ask you something? I try also with edo address and still , mixi asked me the mobile number.
Your guide don't show the "3" rd passage... I wonder why?
The 3rd passage it's when it asked the email address...

Would you please create one for me? It seems @edu mailboxes reject my request of joining. And I'm desprate to join in.

No, I cannot. You are allowed only ONE .edu account when you're a college/university student. I cannot make another .edu account because I'm only limited to the one I have. That's how university/college emails work. You cannot make unlimited .edu email accounts.

But after you have enter all your name, birthdate,etc, it will lead you to the cell phone page. So this is not working anymore?
