I’m currently on a pay monthly mobile plan with Vodafone. If I wish to keep the same number, would I have to order the Skinny SIM card online? Or is it possible for me to purchase a Skinny SIM from the local pak n save and just transfer my number onto it somehow?

Also, would I have to contact Vodafone to cancel my pay monthly plan before I make the switch to Skinny? Would switching to Vodafone prepay first be a better option that to cancel a pay monthly plan? (I read somewhere about some 30 days notice but can’t seem to find it anymore)

Trying to switch over in the quickest and smoothest way possible.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, get a Skinny SIM from anywhere and do the number transfer process on their website. As part of the transfer your Vodafone plan will be cancelled, but you will be billed for the rest of your contract term - might be a month, might be longer if you're still in fixed term.

As above do not contact VodafoneNZ just port the number to Skinny and this will deactivate your mobile number on the VodafoneNZ side and close your account


If you are under a term contract you will be charged any ETCs
