    Best pre-paid sim card in New Zealand?

    2 Degrees Mobile is probably the best deal www.2degreesmobile.co.nz NZ prepaid mobile is pretty expensive compared with many other countries, but 2 Degrees is cheaper than the competition. Their prepaid SIMs also include data (50c per MB or $6 for 50MB). Just buy a SIM card from most supermarkets, newsagents or petrol stations. They don't discriminate against non-Kiwis. They'll even sell SIM cards to an Aussie. about 10 years ago

    Does anyone know if you can get pre-paid micro-sim cards in the UK that can be used for an iPad?

    Three have pay-as-you-go data plans for the iPad http://www.three.co.uk/Mobile_Broadband/iPad_data_plans O2 also have micro SIM cards for the iPad but I'm not sure if they are available as prepaid or contract only. O2's website wouldn't let me see this information as I'm outside the UK. There is also the option of using a MiFi wireless broadband device (available on prepaid from most UK mobile networks) and then connecting your iPad to it via Wi-Fi. about 10 years ago

    Whats the best SIM card for travel to the UK?

    Lebara are a good deal with cheap international calls, but I would probably go for an O2 SIM. O2 has some good bolt ons that give you extras like data, cheap international calls and cheap roaming for an additional monthly fee. You can compare the two here http://www.simcardguru.co.uk/category/uk-sim-cards/ Topping up is easy at virtually any corner shop, supermarket, petrol station or supermarket; but you can't top up online unless you have a credit or debit card issued in the UK (so make a big top up before you leave the UK if you're planning on roaming in Europe with the SIM). Other options include 3, Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile, etc. 3 may also be worth considering as they have a deal with free Skype-to-Skype calls (although I think this only works with 3's own phones). over 10 years ago
