New Zealand Test Phone Numbers

By · · 1 min read · Tech

April 11, 2019: I now provide a list of test phone numbers covering AU, NZ, and more.

In February I announced a suite of Australian test phone numbers.

Since their release they have been quite popular, and are averaging approximately 1,000 calls per month now.

I am pleased to announce that I have extended the test suite to New Zealand albeit only in Auckland at this stage.

By dialing 09 887 6986 or +64 9 887 6986 you can access the following tests:

  • Caller ID read back
  • DTMF test
  • Echo Test
  • Milliwatt test tone ;and
  • Music on Hold

As the system that your call will be routed to is in Sydney there may be a little bit of extra latency on the echo test, but it should still be acceptable. Due to abuse since this service has been launched, the service is not available to anonymous callers or those calling outside certain countries including Australia, NZ, and North America.

If you have any suggestions for improvement, get in touch.
