So it can't be used for prepay connections? Because The Warehouse is giving these away with new low end vodafone locked phones. They have a special on, "free vodafone sim with vodafone phones" - and I just realised that I can still add a prepay sim for free, they're just also giving out one of these? O_o. Confusing, I thought they were forcing me to take that variant.

Been done, read the comments. They all went from very smug to instant regret haha.

If you add a cheap item to the cart you can get free shipping with "FDREF28438".

You should totally hand them out like they are business cards.

 

Just be all like "nice to meet you, here is my card"

Well I'm here, could someone confirm if this is the prepay sim I'd actually want? Looking to set my mum up on pay & go.

No idea what "prepay one" is. I wish they'd just do a prepay sim that you can select any plan from when setting up, but I know I had a terrible time getting a mates sim to accept a flex plan.

They can be used / swapped onto existing Prepay / Postpay mobile numbers, They are 100% the same if you walked into a VodafoneNZ store and said you lost your SIM card and want a SIM swap done to obtain your  Prepay / postpay mobile number back

I really have to ask this very basic question about ordering all these 1c sim cards.

 

Why?
