Moved to NZ last year, and we'd like to use our old Nokia 3310 as a backup phone, as the batteries never die and it's simple as...


So I'm trying to find out where to get a simply pay as you go SIM card for it. Now both Vodafone and Spark advised me, however, that the phone may not work in NZ.  Something about the wrong frequency bands. We've used it fine in the UK, Nepal and Kenya, not sure why it would be a problem here. Are they just trying to make us by a new phone or will it really be a problem?




Many thanks
