To be eligible for this offer you must have purchased your iPhone from NZ, either a retail store or the NZ Apple online store. This is due to the fact that iPhones that are sold from other countries may be locked. I am not sure how Telecom is verifying they are NZ iPhones, so if you did purchase it from elsewhere and it is unlocked then you may be able to make the switch, but be aware they may require proof of purchase.
To get the $600 credit you need to go on the One Rate 180 Double Talk Time plan (or above) for 24 months with an XT SIM. The One Rate 180 Double Talk Time plan is $81.73 per month and you get 360 minutes per month for the 2 years. If you feel like 2 years is too long then you can also opt for a 12 month term however you will only receive a $150 account credit and you don’t get the ‘double talk time’.
This offer is also available to existing customers, but if you are already in a term contract then you will pay the relevant termination fees.
Obviously once you have moved across you will need to set up your iPhone so that MMS and data work. To do that you can visit our ‘Manual Carrier Settings‘ page.
To make the switch you need to go in store and they’ll organise it for you.
