I have a sim that I no longer want to use, it is a prepaid. Is it possible to have the carrier disconnect the number? I presume I just go into a store to get it done?

Take it in and ask - or pick up the phone and call the telco and ask.

Being prepaid they may just say "destroy it".

This is why there are more cellphone connections than people in NZ.
