Activating the SIM:
 +
 
 +
* Insert the SIM in the phone
 +
* Make sure the correct network is selected
 +
* Call 200
 +
* First do a top-up (1).  Minimum amount is 20 NZD, done by credit card
 +
* You probably don't want to have them save your credit card details, otherwise the combo pack will automatically renew when you leave.
 +
* You get a text message confirming it.
 +
* Add a combo pack or data pack
 +
* You get a text message confirming it.
 +
 
 +
**Note**: Their IVR doesn't update with your current balance while you're still on the line -- the balance is from when you started the call. So you top up your account, and then you get told that you have "0 Dollars"...

* Optus post-paid mobiles allegedly have a $10/day travel pack option which can be activated online, giving unlimited talk and SMS plus 50MB data/day.  This is markedly (exponentially?) cheaper than the standard roaming rate.  See http://www.optus.com.au/shop/mobilephones/international-roaming/postpaid#add-roaming for details, or http://www.optus.com.au/shop/mobilephones/international-roaming/data-roaming#add-roaming if you only want data and don't care about talk/SMS.
 +
* Telstra has something similar - see https://www.telstra.com.au/mobile-phones/international-roaming#intravelpass.
 +
* So does Vodafone: http://www.vodafone.com.au/personal/international-roaming
 +
* Don't accidentally use roaming data without getting some sort of travel pack active first.  You will almost certainly regret it.
 +
* Picking up a New Zealand SIM will probably still work out cheaper than roaming travel packs, especially if you only really care about data.
