Re: How do I get BIS in New Zealand

The only way to get BIS is to subscribe to it through a cell carrier.  Since none in New Zealand support it, there's really no other easy way to get it.

If you ever visit another country, you can aquire a SIM card from another carrier and use it in your phone when you're in New Zealand but be prepared to pay a LOT of money to use it.  Not worth it, really, but it's an option if you're desperate enough to try it.
