Hi - We're travelling to NZ from Aus in 13 sleeps time (just a little excited cause it's my first OS trip ever) & I'm a computer nerd, no very little.
We've purchased a wireless Toshiba laptop mainly to put our photos in order at the end of each day so we don't forget what we've done, but I'd also like to check my emails & send an email home every 2-3 days.
We can check our emails off a website www.telecom.com & can send emails either from this website or a yahoo website but I am very unsure re a couple of things:
1. I believe if we go to a coffee shop or a caravan park that has wireless access & purchase a product, some places will allow us free access or charge per hour of usage - but how do I know I'm going to be able to access an internet site using my laptop?
2. Someone told me that I'll have to buy some prepaid package for a month when we get to the international airport - do I need to do this & what does it do?
Sorry I am very vague when it comes to computers so you'll need to spell it out exactly what I'll have to do to get onto an internet site to check our emails, etc.
I'm really hoping it's as easy as going to a coffee shop, purchasing a cuppa & cake (well a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do), plugging my laptop into their socket & typing in a website address - will I be that lucky???
I'm hoping someone out there can explain this easily to me.
Thanks in advance.
