No, not a dumb question at all Andrew.  I had to figure this out for myself a couple of months back when I got a USB Data Stick for XT.

Telecom really aren't geared up for people who choose other Mobile Phone providers, but still want to use an XT Data Stick.  I am also in this category, and encountered the same problem as you.

Here is the way around it:

-  Logon to the internet using your Data Stick (hopefully you have at least 50c credit left, or it is going to be much more difficult)

-  Go to this web page:  http://yt.telecom.co.nz/mobile/

-  Click on the Top Up link (sorry, I'm not connected via my Data Stick at present, so that wording may not be exact)

-  Choose the option to enter a Voucher Number rather than a credit card, and your topup will be done in a few moments

If you have completely run out of credit, send me a PM and I can enter the voucher number together with the 027xxxxxxx number for your Data Stick and get you up and running that way.

Alternatively, you can call the 0800 32 32 32 number and battle your way through the various menus until you find the right one.

Cheers,
Grant.

if you call the 0800 323232 number of a landline just choose option 1 then it will ask you to enter your mobile number - this is the data cards mobile number - then it was confirm the number and then prompt you to enter your voucher number and then ur done :)
