Hello, now that Vodafone Australia has released NumberSync which supports Apple Watch 3 Cellular will NZ also or will this be another service (like Visual VoiceMail) NZ don’t get?

I think NZ will follow AU using the same technology. It is likely that the celullar version in AU will also be available in NZ in the future because they use the same network and frequencies, just like iPhone (I had a glance at the networks that NZ and AU version iphones support, exactly the same). Remember I bought an iPhone, it was shipped from AU, which means Apple does not tailor products for NZ and we use the same model as AU. So just a guess for the watch, it will be the same stuff.

I wish you were right, but it isnt as simple as this as the  backend billing  systems that Vodafone run are different between Aust and NZ and even though VF AUST has implemented, it will still require a systems upgrade by VFNZ..

so the question remains, when will this occur?

Over 100 Kiwis have signed this petition. And yet Vodafone won’t budge. I will be switching my provider at this new iPhone launch just out of protest.

How much are you planning on charging for this? Free for on account customers?
