Prepaid data SIM card in NZHey guys, I have an iPhone4, iPhone5 and New iPad. As I'm heading there for business in a week time, I'm thinking of getting the a prepaid data SIM card for my heavy internet and google map usage along the go. I will need good 3G reception in places like Mount Cook, Lake Pukaki etc.
Is it possible to get one and install in my iPhone4, turn on tethering so my iPhone5 and New iPad can leech internet access off my iPhone4? I would appreciate any help in this! As I tried to do it in Australia and it doesn't allow me to turn on tethering.

4#1 Either Telecom or Vodaphone, depending on which network offers the best 3G broadband speed in rural areas like Mount Cook and other areas between Queenstown and Christchurch.
#2 Yup I know that iPhone 4 and 5 has tethering capabilities, and in my home country (Singapore), my post-paid SIM plan allows me to do so. However in Australia, Optus's prepaid doesn't allow me to enable tethering. The tethering function couldn't function and turns gray.
Thus it's important to know if either Telecom or Vodaphone allows tethering.
Alternatively, what do you guys think of this : http://www.vodafone.co.nz/shop/mobileInternetDetails.jsp?skuId=sku21830057&voucherCode=&hardwareSkuId=&menuKey=&selectedPlanSkuId=&selectedView=&selectedTab=technicalSpecifications&selectedPriceTab=&ignoreCartContent=
This mobile broadband device allows me to connect up to 5 devices!
