    Hi everyone out there, I am travelling to New Zealand later this month and
    want to be able to call back home regularly, Who is offering the best call
    home rates on a pre-paid card in Australia or am I better off getting a Sim
    when I get to New Zealand?

    Thanks in advance

    I've never used this mob, but I might someday. I've always just used my
    Australian SIM and used the phone only for urgent contacts. They are
    called GT Sim, and their website is www.gt-sim.com.au Calls from NZ to
    Australia are 49 cents a minute.

    As I said, I've never used them, so I have no idea whether they're good,
    bad or indifferent.

    I used Telstra Global Roaming on my CDMA and had to use the phone several
    times calling back to Aus and it cost me $150 so I do not recommend it at
    all!
    You can get a NZ Vodaphone pre-paid SIM for about $30NZ with about $10 of
    calls and then another $20 of calls if you register on-line (we found a
    coin-operated internet-terminal at a laundrette).
    They sell them over there at electrical stores like Bond & Bond, Clive
    Anthony or Dick Smith.

    Q: Does anything say "I'm a Wanker" louder than whinging about top-posting?

    Local prepaid cards won't work overseas. If you are not using a prepaid card
    check with your service provider see if you can get Global Roaming activated
    with your currrent service and just turn it off when you return.
