Can I use my consumer cellular phone in New Zealand? I was told by customer service that they can turn on international roaming, but could not give a 100% guarantee that it would work. I was told that I have a T-Mobile SIM card in my phone. Apparently, that is a good thing.
The CC rep told me that even though international roaming would be turned on, there would be a chance that the phone would not work. She said that I might have to buy a local SIM card, an unnecessary expense since I only need to make a few short calls, or send a few texts.
