How can I use my own data in New Zealand?

I go to NZ at the end of this month and want to be able to use my own data abroad if possible. I have a 4GB pay monthly plan for my phone along with a 4GB mini 4Gee device. 

 

Is there any way I can use my own plan without having to pay £6 a day for a very small amount of data. We’re away for just over 3 weeks

If you don't have a Max Plan the only other way to use your UK data in NZ (& 4 other non-EU countries) is to buy the Go Further Roaming Add-on at £10 / month for min. 6 months = at least £60. That'll be cheaper than the £6 / day roaming data add-on over 3 weeks.

Hi there @HMack

 

Thanks for coming to the community.

 

I can see you have had some great advice already from @XRaySpeX

 

Just to add, before you go text ROAMING to 150 to make sure you're set up to use your phone abroad 🙂

 

Hope you have an amazing time!

 

Leanne.
