If you plan on visiting New Zealand any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The New Zealand SIM card provides a simple, convenient, and affordable way for any traveler to make and receive those all-important calls while abroad.
The prepaid SIM card for New Zealand is a practical option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid New Zealand cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a New Zealand cell phone rental. It’s also a trouble-free ticket to using the same options that the New Zealanders themselves use—the local New Zealander cell phone system. The SIM chip, combined with an unlocked GSM World cell phone, helps you keep the lines of communication open without being burdened by high international roaming surcharges applicable when you use your “home” SIM card abroad. You’ll likewise enjoy the benefit of SMS text messaging, voicemail, a local cell phone number in New Zealand, international roaming capability, and FREE incoming calls. The prepaid feature gives you complete control over your costs, and with our low domestic and international calling rates billed at just 1 second intervals after the first minute of each call, having a cell phone in New Zealand is affordable for all. Access to customer service from your New Zealand cellular phone is available 24 hour a day, so you’ll always have assistance with any unexpected issues or questions about your calls. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.
Your New Zealand SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 900 frequency. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration. Please click here for more information.
