jtan: Not sure if anyone has posted this already but Vodafone NZ announced on their official Facebook page and on Twitter (https://twitter.com/vodafoneNZ/status/248658869818097665) that they will be taking iPhone 5 preorders from 12:01am tonight on their website... I would imagine Telecom NZ will make a similar announcement soon.
Yay. should be good on VF too, as they have that network thing Dual Carrier, which i know the new iphone has, subject to coverage of course. http://www.vodafone.co.nz/speedy-network/
