I have booked an apartment in Australia that does not have internet therefore I need coms with generous internet. Some attractive deals exist including a Vodafone that only failed when my New Zealand location was deciphered by my credit card numbers days after purchase. Most of the virtual networks were excluding themselves by my location or useless because of timing so their good looks are without usability.
I have managed a Vodafone promotion that is designed to trap locals into a ludicrously expensive $50 a month renewal. I only want the startup 35 days and possibly a month reload on another trip before the natural expiry of the SIM. My New Zealand cell phones are prepay and not sensible for roaming. Huge cost for data.
Does anyone here know if it is possible to "Activate" the SIM cards I have on line before I arrive in Australia. They are Prepay.
