You can just drop into the "3" store and ask them to do it for you, I
have found them, or at least the shopfront at Woden, to be most
helpful. Yes the coverage in remote areas of Oz is rubbish but it is
not as if they dont warn you of this, still the charges are "livable
with" when roaming. Still with the Voda merger who knows, 3 coverage
might get better. I have no idea if they plan to amalgamate their
towers but I cannot imagine why they wouldn't.
