NTT DoCoMo’s entry into the iPhone fray in Japan is sparking fierce competition for customers, with all three carriers offering certain iPhone 5S models for free with a two-year contract.

DoCoMo, KDDI (au), and SoftBank will offer the 16GB versions of the iPhone 5S for effectively nothing with a two-year contract on certain plans (the so-called “0 Yen Plan”), all three carriers announced Friday.

The carriers have posted the pricing plans on their respective Web sites, while the news has been reported widely in Japan.

In DoCoMo’s case, for example, discounts are applied monthly over the term of the contract — that means no upfront cost, effectively yielding a free handset. KDDI and SoftBank have similar deals.

All three have set monthly data network fees at 5,460 yen (about $55).
