I guess it had to happen but Trademe is now flooded with 2 Degree SIMs, making it actually hard to search for other SIM cards.
Modus operandi - buy cheap SIM, load on a "good" number, sell on Trademe for $$$
Despicable really. I wish there was some way this could be limited.
I'd pay to be able to choose my number. Perhaps they should do this for every number change.
