I will be travelling to Rarotonga (and Aitutaki) for three weeks in September - can anyone give me advice please about getting a sim card with combined data and calls (or even just with data).

My options are to put a sim card in either an iphone 4 or an iphone 5 and use that as a hot spot - or I could put a sim in my ipad just for data
