Dam my sister just came over here (uk) for a visit.
If i knew telecom were giving these out I would of told her to get one and she would not of had to buy a vodafone sim.

Useful to know thanks Tony have other Telecom people coming over to visit later in the year so will inform them.

Are they available to anyone on account plans?

@ mckenndk; These Telecom SIM cards are strictly for use while roaming overseas, they will not work in NZ. If you wish to buy a local Telecom SIM card, you will have to wait until November 2008 when Telecom launches their new GSM/WCMDA mobile network. Although it is worth noting the phone will need to have GSM 850 MHz band and 2100 MHz if 3G services are required.

Thats all good my sister would of used it here in the uk while visiting me.

When I get back home (NZ) either at the end of the year or early 2009 will have a look at Telecom again if I can use my N95 on their new network.

Um, dude, it's a SIM card, and it is Telecom branded. Whats not official about it?

They are definitley official SIM cards, and are definitley available now - I have one!

And yes, well spotted, its for international roaming, which is why the letter starts with Roam the world with Telecom.
