I'm leading a bunch of youngsters to World Youth Day in Sydney in July; some of the group have Vodafone and some Telecom phones.
I just got off the phone to Telecom Global Roaming Helpdesk and this is what Telecom can do for me
Free Treo 750 loan phone
43 cents per minute calling in Australia, to voicemail and back to New Zealand
40 cent txts and limited to 125 character texts
50 cents per minute to receive a call
$8 per megabyte data roaming
I'm pretty certain we can get a much better deal by getting a Vodafone phone for the period and having a follow me off the telecom phone for those that must keep their NZ number working while they are away.
Does anyone have experience to share in this regard?
