Pre-Paid mobile with data

Hi,

In Feb 2013, I'll be spending 2 weeks in SI . I would like to get a pre-paid SIM with data.

A quick Google search has revealed that 2 degrees ( http://www.2degreesmobile.co.nz/prepay) is probably the way to go.

However, I'm not able to find any details on what kind of paperwork is required to buy a SIM.

Could the forum members shed some light, please?

Cheers!

Thank you!

So once I have the credit, how do I buy the plan? Is it online or could I buy it at a retailer shop?

You can look online for the various plans - data; calls to different countries etc and then text that code to a given number once you have bought the credit. Best to do your homework eg Last year there was a $10 package for 100 minutes of calls to China so I urged my group members to put $20 credit on their phones and then text "BUYCHINA" or something similar to enter into that particular plan. I regularly received text messages offering "Buy Data" deals.

Thank you for your suggestions everyone. Used 2 degrees during my 2 weeks stay in Feb 2013. No complaints with the service connectivity and rates :)
