I'm assuming that if I take my iPhone over the ditch and pop in a local Aussi prepay sim then it will work fine and I can benefit from local chaeper data rates, right?? If so then does anybody know what the options are for prepay sim in Aussi and their respective data rates?
I dont know the data charges, but I was in Oz at the beginning of the month and bought an Aussie sim and AU$29 worth of credit for AU$39. The AU$29 was a deal where they then gave you AU$150 worth of credit to be used up that month. And they credited me $10 for buying the sim. So......AU$39 = AU$160. Seemed a bargain to me!
Just rock up to a vodafone stand in the airport. They were very helpful at Sydney. As I didnt use all the credit up in the week I was there (but still saved myself a fortune in comparison to roaming on a NZ sim) I enabled the sim for internation roaming and then used it back here for dialling family in the UK!
