Is it possible to purchase from overseas before visiting Australia?

We'll be visiting Australia next month and the $20 for a $40 card looks like a bargain.  However when I try to purchase it I can't get past the space where it requires a mobile phone number as it does not recognize my New Zealand number.

Is it possible to purchase from overseas  - especially when I don't already (obviously) have an Australian number?

Thank you, Tony

No. But the half price deal had been running continuously for the last couple months in 1 or more shops and/or online. Or if you are visiting someone here, maybe complete their details and get it posted to them?

Service Number = Mobile Number.

Where kiwi mobiles start with 02, all of our mobiles start with 04. Pretty much the same otherwise, but handy to know.

My son in Melbourne sent me the Boost $2 micro SIM so I have a question - sorry if it seems to be too simple but is the "Service Number" written on the sticker of the packaging the actual phone number?   Thank you.
