I don't think it is correct, My transfer was free when I did it, so Can't see why they would charge Darren to upgrade to xt :P

Depends what you're doing. If you're going CDMA prepaid to XT prepaid I believe it should be free. If you're still have some term left on a plan with CDMA and moving to XT there would be some termination costs.

Try getting your friend to put his number into this website and find out what upgrade options he has http://store.telecom.co.nz/mobile/upgrade

SIM's are free when transferring from CDMA.


Telecom do not charge ETF's to move to XT from CDMA, you simply need to honor the balance of your contract.

All the LE store need to do is select CDMA to XT upgrade on One Rate Prepaid in the point of sale computer, and the SIM will be free.

You don't pay to transfer a number.

Try the ORB store down the road if need be.

Perhaps call them to confirm?

As I understand it, Telecom have significantly reduced commissions paid to dealer, so unless you have brought the phone from the store you are in, you are likley to be charged.

$20 for the sim - Right

$20 to get the number put on - Wrong. (However I do understand some stores charge for certain services that others don't)

No that is not correct in the instance the OP is referring to.


When you transfer from CDMA (i.e. upgrade), on postpaid or prepaid there is NO charge for a SIM.


Prepaid SIM's with a new number cost $29.95 (however they are currently free when you purchase a handset).


The only time you should pay for a SIM is if you lost or damaged your original SIM. Faulty SIM's are replaced free of charge.
