Keep an eye on your data charges, mate of mine has just come back from Canada, and racked up a $900 bill for 30Mb of roaming data.

Roaming calls + data = very expensive.

I have just come back from a week in OZ and the iPhone worked fine.  I turned all the data and location services off though, so i just used it as a phone, until I hit a free WiFi hotspot.

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!  Laughing
