Coming back to NZ on the weekend for 2+ weeks. Seems like the 3G network is a ton better than when I left in 2005!
We're going to be on the south island, driving from Christchurch down to Invercargill and then up the west coast back to CHCH. Will be wanting it primarily for email, Google maps with the GPS, and a little web surfing here and there.
My Nokia E71 is UMTS 850/1900 so seems like I'll have the main 850 network just not the 2100 overflow one. That should be fine, right?
Do I have to go to a Telecom store to buy a prepaid SIM or can I just pick up a pack somewhere? Are they sold everywhere?? Could I get one in the International terminal in the Auckland Airport while we're waiting for the connection to CHCH? (The connection is in the int'l terminal - go through customs in CHCH).
Also then do I just call up and order the 240MB "data extra"?
Anything else I need to be aware of?
