I have rented a pocket wifi when I visited Japan last year and it was such a good experience as I didn’t have to buy a SIM card and change my phone number. I wonder whether there is such services in NZ?

As far as I know, pocket wi-fi is available in NZ but at a cost of something like USD7.99 per day. If you think it's worth it so as not to have to change your SIM card and phone number - fine! If you take the SkyBus from Auckland airport to the CBD when you arrive here, you can get a free 2 Degrees SIM card on the bus and then buy a pre-paid ticket for NZD19 which lasts for a month (100 minutes, 500Mb, unlimited texts to NZ and Aus) - much better value!:)
