What i would like is a cheap phone that I can use with 2degrees or vodafone here, but that I can also take overseas and use other SIM cards in. I am talking about Australia, Asia (central and SE) and maybe Europe. Do all these places use the same frequencies? What is CDMA? Do I need 3G?
Why is NZ so behind and expensive?! We recently saw texting (within the same network) advertised for 1c in Malaysia, so thats 0.5c NZ. Calls we listed cheaply too. Given our lack of phone, we were stuck paying bigger money in call centres and phone boxes - next time we'd like to take our own phone!
I've heard a lot of good things about Nokia, they also seem to do cheaper phones.
Any hints and suggestions welcome, comments about our ignorance arent. Thanks heaps.
