Does anybody know what network Skinny uses to roam on in the States ? Do you need to do anything special before you leave NZ to be able to roam over there ?
Thanks.

Im with Skinny but geesze the roaming prices seem horrendous plus no data which im sure is important for more folk who require functionality for smartphones.
I always swear by finding a local Telecomunication partner to use one of there Sim cards which would be a lot more cost effective.
Albeit the trouble of notifying friends and colleagues your number but that shouldnt be hard.

Remember Telecom does a $10/day data roaming to the USA. If you're there for less than a week it's worth it instead of picking a local SIM.

Skinny doesn't seem to be part of this deal.

XT prepaid isn't either. The $6/10 roaming deals only apply to post paid customers

Hi

You should be good to go in the USA - no setup required.  Rates are$1.00 Call to NZ
$2.00 Calls within USA or to other countries

$0.70 per Text
$1.00 per minute to receive calls
We don't have data roaming.

Cheers

Paul
