The short answer is no. We are separate countries with separate systems. The longer answer is that if you have international roaming, depending on the carrier you have chosen, they will work - but at a high cost. Secondly if you have an iPhone, they can be dangerously high in charges. What your solution will be I will leave to experts in travelling the South Pacific, I only have experience in using my Aus sim in NZ, and I kept calls to a minimum and short. If I had wanted to use my phone more extensively I would have purchased a local sim.
If you can find wifi, there are apps you can use that allow you to make calls very cheaply.
