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".

Snap it in half and throw it in the bin?

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