I am going to be heading over to Auckland in a couple of weeks, but I was hoping to organise a mobile number and business cards (with said mobile number printed on them) before I arrive. Last time I bought an Australian SIM card it had the mobile number that would be associated with it in with the paperwork, but I just got another one today and it doesn't. I had planned to get a new unactivated 2 Degrees SIM shipped over to me, but if there is no way for me to be assigned a number prior to arriving and calling up to activate, then I won't bother.

TL;DR Can I find out the number associated with a new 2deg SIM either from the paperwork that comes with it or over the net, without calling up to activate?
