Hi there

 

My son's current mobile needs replacing. He is currently on one of the prepaid Freebee plans.  Various shops (such as The Warehouse and Warehouse Stationery) include a free SIM card pre-loaded with one month's worth of a prepaid plan (e.g. Smart19Data and NZBestMate).  If I buy him one of these, is he able to take advantage of the free credit on the new SIM?

Hi Glynn

 

As the device is unlocked, He can use any SIM card, including the one he got with his new device. Bearing in mind, it will have a different mobile number but hey, enjoy the free months usage!

Thanks Mary

 

Could he transfer his number from his old SIM to the new SIM without creating any problems, and still benefit from the free credit?

 

Cheers

In short no. Both SIM cards will already be active with their own numbers assigned to them.
