Hi there

I made the following post on Vodafone Australia's Facebook page:
"Hi there, I know in NZ there is this traveler's SIM -- -- for international persons. Does Vodafone Australia offer a similar product? If so, would the SIM work in this mobile broadband device I have for use in NZ -- (link to what I thought was Wifi R215 but clicking on goes to R216) Many thanks, Stevie"

Someone replied:
"Hi Stevie,

You've definitely got a couple of options. In fact, if it's just data that you're needing to grab our Prepaid Mobile Broadband options will be just what you're after. These are available on our website here:

The one thing we do suggest you double check with Vodafone New Zealand is that your modem is unlocked and able to be used with other Networks. If everything is fine there, you shouldn't have any troubles.

Let us know what you decide to do Stevie and sing out if you've got any other questions.


Is the R215 modem unlocked so it can use a Vodafone Australia SIM (I assume that is what they mean by used with other networks)?

It would of had a sticker on the box it came in advising if the device was SIM locked and I am sure the R215 was never SIM locked

I'm very certain those haven't been locked, should all be fine.
