Go. Go. Go. If you have been waiting for pre paid iPhone 5 availability before pulling the trigger Telecom NZ now have you covered. The iPhone 5 is now available on pre pay. To be clear that’s full pre pay buy outright no strings attached not to be confused with open term where by you need to take out a contract and then cancel it straight away. The price is the Apple RRP of $1029 for the 16gb models increasing as you go up in size. Currently all sizes and colors are available. They are available online and at selected stores only. We don’t have a list of stores but we think you can assume the larger retail stores only will have these initially. They can be ordered online here
If you have recently ordered one of these from Apple online and are in the middle of a 4 week wait you can cancel your Apple online order and pick up one of these at no extra cost.
Is this what you have been waiting for? What size and color will you be getting? Let us know in the comments.…Read More

Despite the ‘free’ minute allocation they include, the average price per minute still makes voice calling a costly exercise.

2degrees have just announced a new mobile broadband plan, and it’s insanely cheap. Providing 12GB (yes, 12!) of data that can last 180 days (6 months) for $150, the plan works out (spread over its maximum duration) as 2GB per month for $25 per month. Not only is that cheap for mobile broadband, it also undercuts the price of traditional ADSL broadband. Telecom, for example, start their ADSL offerings at $41 for 3GB.
It’s amazing what a third competitor in the mobile market has done to data pricing in the last year or so, and it’s great to see continued innovation. We can see this appealing to not just heavy mobile users, but also to lighter home users. Add in the Huawei WiFi router on offer for just $129 and you’ve got an entirely portable wireless broadband network that’s perfect for the likes of WiFi-only iPads and iPod touches.

The only downside is talking to people with FaceTime uses data, but how much does it use? and what is a call going to cost you to make or receive? Carry on reading to find out.…Read More
