Cellphones

New Zealand features 3 cellular carriers: Vodafone, 2Degress and Spark. Their prices and features are very similar. Vodafone and Spark tend to have better coverage and quality of service, especially outside of the big cities. 2 degrees offer cheaper data, especially in bigger cities.

Technically, all overseas mobiles can be used in New Zealand, by just putting a local SIM card in your phone. Please advise the local provider, whether you need a normal, micro or nano SIM. SIM card are available in the providers shops, which can be found on Queen Street all over the place.

We are giving away free sim cards to every guest. If you think that’s great why not like us on Facebook and let know others how to save $5.00

Please note that some cellphones have a SIM lock established by your provider that prohibits to use the phone in a different network. Please contact our reception and we will advise you of how to get rid of the SIM lock.
