Nice forum you guys have here. I'm coming to NZ at the end of November for about two weeks and will be touring your beautiful country (unfortunately just the north island). In the US I have a T-mobile MDA phone (Qtek 9100) with wireless internet (GPRS), but the phone also has built in wifi. So since I dont want to bring my huge laptop, I'm looking for options of getting my phone connected while in NZ.
Is it possible to get a pay as you go Sim Card for my phone, possibly with a data plan for such a short amount of time?
Alternatively, if I go the wifi route, which company is the best to go for (in terms of coverage/hotspots on the North Island)?
Any information will be helpful, including general rates for such services (so I can get an estimate of how much I will be spending).
Basically I want to be able to check my email (both pop3 and exchange) from my phone. Actually being able to make phonecalls in NZ (without paying international roaming fees) will be a big plus.
