Hi guys I am sharing my experience that I have had about porting a number for my mother to Vodafone. It hasn't happened as yet and this is the reason I am creating this forum to get some clarification around the process especially the SIM cards involved.

Before I start I want to bring it up I am currently with Vodafone and have been happy most of the times with them. I went to sylvia park Vodafone to port my mother's number back to Vodafone as she had moved over to telecom recently however she wanted to port back. I knew the prepay plan I wanted her number on and also took the SIM number which is required for a prepay port. I spoke to the rep there and explained what I wanted and once she knew I wanted this plan with the NZ best mate she told me we don't have those SIM cards. I didn't realise that the SIMS are plan specific too and I could port across with a SIM and then choose the plan. Went to the Vodafone kiosk in the same mall they go through the same questions and same response - don't have those SIMS. Then I went to a third store and the same response again.

Does anyone know if this is true? I am confused as I want to port this number over however I can't find a SIM to do it or may be the reps at store are not so keen on prepaid ports.

Purchase any Prepay connection pack activate it and do the port on the main Vodafone NZ site or if you like I can do it Monday,

Thanks John that would be awesome. Do I buy a blank SIM or a new prepaid connection with a new number and then the port happens later?
