Top-up via *333
  • This solution allows you to nominate/enter the prepaid mobile number (in the 027 format) if  your Calling Line Identity (CLI) cannot be recognised by the IVR (calling from overseas there is no guarantee of the format of the CLI)
    • Access the service by dialling *333 as you would whilst in NZ (N.B. when roaming, this number will only be accessible from a prepaid mobile)
    • Calls to *333 will be zero-rated and the customer will not be charged (otherwise customers will not be able to top-up if they have insufficient funds)
    • Calls to *333 will be routed to the same destination as per 0800 323232 dialled when in NZ. A new international routable number will be utilised.
    • Voice short codes such as 123, *123, *555 and 120 will not work whilst roaming with devices, but SMS short codes will. This means any support while roaming you will have to call the International Roaming Helpdesk which will be preloaded on the SIM phonebook and on
