Select one of our cell phone rentals for your next trip to New Zealand. Please note that in order to call or text the USA or Canada, you must use an app. We recommend Talkatone as it is easy to use, free and you can call to landlines. WhatsApp of course is a great app but the limitation is that both users need to have it on their phone. Also, please note that in order to download most apps, you must rent an iPhone 6 or above.
While you can make calls in New Zealand and text in New Zealand without an app, many users tend to use their phones for activities involving data more than for calling. You can book hotels, check into your flight, use maps, check emails and more with a cell phone. Again, the iPhone 5 rental is good primarily for calling and browsing but not for downloading apps as most apps require a more recent operating system.
