I wonder if it is possible at all, like when you switch between networks in NZ, you get to keep your mobile number, am I able to do the same when moving to another part of the world as in EU and still keep my number?

The two companies - while they may have the same parent - do not operate in the way to allow numbers to be moved like that. The number ranges are different anyway; I doubt you would get "021 XXXXXX"-anything.

Maybe one day we will have 'personal numbers' that move with us worldwide. Who knows? They may be in chips in our brains and when VF owns the world telecom market, President John R may permit it.

Not looking forward to that human revolution. Set it on fire.

Oh well, thanks guys, I'll just grab a local number when I shift there, its been a pleasure dealing with Vodafone to an extent that I even switch my long spark line (which had interment issues) to vodafone under their fiber plan for the local area and never had to look back.

 

 

 

Cheers.

I'd suggest -

 

1 - roaming

 

2 - move number to prepay on Vodafone. Change voicemail prompt to be like "Hi, this is PetAT. I've moved to the UK, best way to contact me is email xxxxx or call +44 xxx xxxxxxx but please remember the time difference before calling me! Thanks." (remember to top up the number $20 one a year, can do that online). Could also leave the sim in an android phone in New Zealand with friend/family person with a sms autoresponder app, if you receive text messages.

 

3 - *maybe* possible to port the number to wxc or 2talk, then use the phone number on your phone through a voip app. probably won't be ideal, and not sure if sms would work. would probably want to test that before leaving, and you probably have enough to do with packing up etc!
