As per $subject?

Looking at http://www.spark.co.nz/shop/mobile/mobile/plansandpricing.html the minimum would be the $9 plan.

I would be keen in getting a standard pay per minute with nothing included (the credit used to be valid for 12 months).

Thanks.

$0 is hardly prepaid. How could you do anything? That's post paid.

I'm after something like this: http://www.2degreesmobile.co.nz/prepay/rates

No monthly charge, use your balance to pay for what you ocasionaly use.

You pay based on your usage, the way prepay has been working for years in NZ.

Yes, just don't choose a recurring plan. Credit is still valid for 12 months.

Correct. However, is it still available for new customers?

Cool, thanks for that. I'm assuming the I can get a $19 plan for example for one month and cancel it afterwards?

You are best to ask Spark directly.  I find the chat on their website works quite well.

It certainly *looks* like they can still be used without a "plan" but I see all the SIM purchase options include a "free" plan for the first month.

I was curious too, so did just that. For the OP:  Yup, you can just signup with no value pack and just use your credit on casual rates and top-up as needed. And yes you can just add a value pack for a single month if needed and cancel it the next month.
