I am going to the uk in 3 weeks and i am taking my vodafone prepay cellphone with me. while inside the uk i am going to be calling uk cellphone numbers. do i have to dial the uk cellphone numbers with   +64 in front of the number or just the uk cellphone number on it's own?

If a person calls my cellphone from new zealand do i have to pay for this because i am roaming or does the person calling pay?

If you use your Vodafone SIM it will be expensive to roam.

YOU will pay to forward the call if people in NZ call your number,  I think it is $1/min,

your calls to Local UK numbers will cost you around the same, and UK numbers begin with +44

The best option is to grab a UK based prepay SIM, it is much cheaper,

It's much cheaper to buy the Voda UK sim. I was there in July and could call NZ for 5p per minute! Cheaper than a local call here. Tell them you need the international pack.

Who sells Vodafone UK simcards here in NZ? I'm certainly not aware of anybody.
