I have a friend moving to the UK next year, but she needs to replace her mobile phone now. Which network is she best to buy a phone from (2degrees, vodafone, Telecom) that will be useful later on in the UK?

Any GSM handset that's not carrier locked. Which means, basically, any handset currently on sale in NZ.

iPad Pro 11" + iPhone XS + 2degrees 4tw!


These comments are my own and do not represent the opinions of 2degrees.

Hi, stick with a UMTS 900MHz model from Voda or 2deg rather than a 850MHz unit from XT, other than that its all good to go with although as with any you will need to change APN's voice mail and message centre details when you get a new SIM in UK.
