I have a blackberry and am finding out that I can get a sim card in NZ for voice and text but not email and internet.

I am wondering how available wifi is and the cost for it. If I purchase a coffee would I be able to use wifi?

How expensive would it be to get a cheap phone in New Zealand that would be able to do it all on a prepaid basis as we are there for a month? Or should we consider a cheap phone for voice and text and pay a $30 fee for 50 gb data for the month from verizon? Since we don't upload photos etc 50 gb would probably be enough for that time frame.

We leave in 2 weeks and I would like to have this resolved by the time I go.

Thanks much!
