Moving to New Zealand

Hi Smiley Happy

This is probably a silly question, but at the end of the year I’m most likely moving to NZ. I currently have a prepaid sim with Telstra that has a mobile numbers ive had since I was 16. If I get a new NZ sim and mobile number is there a call forwarding or diverting feature that will allow any messages or calls that are sent to my Telstra Oz number to come through to my new NZ number?

I will he travelling between Oz and NZ often so regardless I won’t be getting rid of my Telstra number.

Call forwarding to overseas numbers isn't currently possible.


If you are going to leave the Oz SIM in a device in Oz (such as at a family members house) then there may be options in the device to share the details to another device on the same system and account (iOS to iOS or Android to Android) in the device settings, but not at a network level any longer.
