Cell phone arrives - Contact details

The cell phone arrived. The Siemens AF51 is much smaller than I thought and is proving somewhat difficult to use; a learning curve. Charged up and with two sims, one each for Australia and New Zealand; Just prepaid mobile for Australia gives a phone number on this phone of 0424387848. To call this phone when I'm in Australia, arriving 5 September and departing 28 September, from the U.S., dial 011-61-424387848; International access 011, country code Australia 61, phone number without the first 0.

Instructions to dial out of Australia is dialing0011 country code (U.S. is 1) area code and phone number.

The New Zealand sim is a Vodaphone, giving this phone number: 0211282882; to call this phone when I'm in New Zealand, arriving 28 September and departing 8 October, from the U.S., dial 011-64-21128282.

Instructions to call out from New Zealand are to dial 00 plus country code (for U.S. this is 1) plus area code and phone number.

The U.S. number on the phone, T-Mobile sim card resulting in this phone number (bought this one ebay for $10; it provides 140 minutes at about $.20 ($28.00) and gives a phone number or : 213-493-3247. This is valid until 3 September and will again be valid after 8 October.

Thus, I have three sim cards for this phone, U.S., Australia and New Zealand.
