Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Watch the validity period of aussie sim cards. Some are quite short - 30 days without topup or bundle active was on one of them to get it disconnected. Most are 6 months.

Can't see any reason why you wouldn't just pick them up when you get there (unless you are coordinating some sort of covert operation, of course). Aldi (cheap supermarket chain) do a long expiry (12 Months) sim with good call rates. You need to go through a compulsory identity check process on the phone to activate, but a passport and DL should be plenty. You may be able to do the ID check from here before going over.

Considering I had to provide my passport identification to activate my SIM, I would think twice handing this over to another person without understanding the intent.

khull: Considering I had to provide my passport identification to activate my SIM, I would think twice handing this over to another person without understanding the intent. 


I am slightly hazy over the details now but the last time I was in Oz I picked up an Optus SIM card from Dick Smiths - unactivated.

Then I activated it over the phone (landline) when I was in the hotel. They didn't ask for my passport details and I was able to use the hotel address as the address for the account (even though it was prepaid).

I got mine from optus right outside arrivals. Took forever because it was late and they had one guy on and he was explaining to some Muppet how a phone works.

If there was a way to precomplete it then it would have been great. No data sucks so do t really want to leave the airport without sorting it.
