Thanks,

I do not really need to know the number beforehand,
just worried that i might not be able to get a 2degrees SIM card at the airport.
Anyway see how it goes, maybe will check on the Dick smith shop in the airport.

Melissa.

I wouldn't worry about it.

pretty much every petrol station, supermarket, and dairy will stock them.

Hi There - FYI a mate of mine over from Sydney recently had real trouble getting a 2D Sim here in Chch (they were sold out at gas stations) - he had to go to DSE, no probs there. Anyway in general terms I think the best IDD rates from an NZ prepay mobile will probably be using a Voda connection and a V8 calling card (http://www.v8phonecard.co.nz/ratev8.html) - I see they are charging 3.9c/min with a 19 cent flagfall/connect fee.

Or alternately SuperBuzz calling card that operates in a similiar way from a Voda NZ mobile (no connect fee and a low per min rate)

You can buy online I think?

Hope that helps...Enjoy your stay

2 degrees really needs a presence at all international airports. Even just a stand at the book shop.

I still think that a vending machine is the way to go... sims, cheap handsets and car chargers etc.

Thats an excellent idea richms....... Perhaps you should make them a proposition? It would be a heck of alot simpler to manage the supply and distribution of sim card stock if it was done by machines... and being a mobile network, theyd be able to get realtime stats of their stock using a mobile data based accounting system... (kind of like the system Konicaminolta use on their copiers for accounting and billing their leased copiers on per-page plans.)
