Do Adelaide airport sell sim cards?

I'm due to fly out to Adelaide, Australia on Tuesday and was wondering if I could get a sim card from the airport? I'll only be there for one night before flying to Kangaroo Island the next morning so won't have time to look around the town for one.

I did buy an australian vodafone sim card from ebay but found out today it was a micro sim whereas I need a mini sim for my iphone so am in a bit of a panic as to how to get hold of one in time.

Adelaide Airport has Newslink news agents that sell SIM cards, but depending on how late you arrive, it may not be open.

Where are you staying? There's a bunch of convenience stores open 24hrs around the CBD, and they too sell SIM cards. And be sure to get credit also.

My question is do you intend to use the phone on KI?

be aware that many remote areas such as KI in Australia are covered by Telstra, other carriers may have patchy servies if any at all, so it maybe worthwhile to do a coverage check of the sim you are considering.

Vodaphone, has improved its game but here in Aus you get much better coverage with telstra or Optus.
