Q. What IS New Zealand SIM Card?
Ans: New Zealand SIM Card is a small chip that fits into unlocked
GSM phones giving you a number and service for the country it belongs too. SIM stands
for “Subscriber Identity Module” which basically means that all of the services
from the provider are imbedded directly on the card. As long as your phone is unlocked
and has the 900/1800 GSM bands (ask your current provider), you can use an New Zealand

Q. Can I buy Just a SIM card?
Ans: Your current phone may be compatible for use in New Zealand.
The basic requirements are that your phone is unlocked and has the 900 and 1800
GSM frequencies, many of the newer phones in today’s markets; particularly the more
expensive phones are tri or quad band phones which will work in New Zealand.
Even if your phone is GSM and has the 900/1800 networks, it will need to be unlocked
in order to be able to accept a different SIM card. If you bought your phone from
a major US or Canadian provider, most likely it has been blocked by your carrier.
The good news is that they will provide you with the unlock code in order to use
other SIMs with your phone. Therefore, please ascertain if your phone has the 900/1800
GSM bands and, if it is locked, ask your provider for the unlock code. If your phone
isn’t compatible with overseas networks, you may consider either buying or renting
a cell phone at just $0.49 rental a day. We have both options available!.
