Non-Europe data for PAYG

The only thing I can find for international data is £1.99 per day for Europe but I need to find out how much it is for roaming in New Zealand. I looked at the possibility of putting a NZ sim in my phone (iPhone 6S) but it was a Christmas present and not even a month old and from what I can gather I can only do that after 12 months.

Re: Non-Europe data for PAYG

Ideally I need roaming as I own my own business and need to be contactable at all times via email while I'm travelling and I won't always be in a wifi area. Is there anyway round this silly 12 month thing, I would understand if I bought it knowingly but someone bought it as a gift so I had no say in it.

Re: Non-Europe data for PAYG

It isn't 12 months for an iPhone but O2 aren't unlocking the 6s yet anyway, however, was the phone bought from O2 or somewhere else?

Once you can get your phone unlocked, you might want to look at Three. No roaming charges for New Zealand. It's one of the countries included in their Feel At Home policy.

Unfortunately you'll have to wait until O2 allow unlocking for the 6s then.

It would work out much cheaper, for sure.
