I picked up a couple of extra SIMs last year - will be a good time to go back and get another couple. I don't have a need but when they're free I may as well get my limit. smile

Always handy to have a spare data sim. It took me about four attempts to get them provisioned to my account because people really didn't know about the offer or how to do it. Put aside some time and expect to have to explain what the product is, that yes, it is $0 per month, and where to find information about it on the website. Ask for the full five $0 tablet connections to be added to your account. You probably don't need sims to be couriered out to you, can just pick up blank sims from a store and do a simswap.

I picked up one last year for a project and then went back and got another two a couple of weeks later. While I didn't have the issue of staff not knowing about it I had to go through a full credit check (apparently Vodafone had none of the required information on my account to actually have an account despite me having been with them since 1996 and resigning contracts on multiple occasions since then) which took 45 mins after having waited at the store for around 30 mins first of all to actually speak to a staff member.

 

The second occasion only involved waiting for about 20 minutes and seemed to be going well until I late realised later on a $10 loyalty discount and data had been removed from my account by the staff member which was a rather extended process to get it put back on.

 

It's great to see the efforts Vodafone have put in to ensure the experience of visiting a store replicates the customer experience of calling them.

I presume these $0 SIM offers never actually expire and revert to silly monthly fees again? Might be worth getting some, I'm finding 2D is struggling in Wellington now.

They are just data share SIM cards. They have a physical phone number (and can be called) but only share the included data balance of the parent plan. Voice calling and SMS from the SIM is charged at usual casual rates.
