This bit is in the Microsoft / Vodafone New Zealand press release for Windows Phone 7:


Vodafone is launching with the HTC 7 Trophy. The phones can be purchased as part of a Vodafone pricing plan, or alternatively, Prepay customers can buy handsets for $899.

Windows Phone 7 plans on Vodafone start from $40.85 per month (includes 30 minutes of calls, 300 texts and up to 250Mb of data) with the handset priced at $799. To get a Windows Phone 7 for under $500, customers can sign up to the $81.75 monthly plan which includes 120 minutes, 600 texts and up to 250Mb (sic) of data.

Thanks for the info freitasm.

Again, lame plans from Vodafone. Why go on-account when it's better to buy it outright and go on any plan on either Vodafone or 2 Degrees?

Those "Smart" Plans aren't very applicable to actual usage are they? Must be due for an update!

Still, nice looking handset, and the OS is definitely interesting!

Yes handset subsidies are kind of retarded here in NZ. Unlike australia where $49/month plan can get you a free Samsung Galaxy S and 2 months free. http://personal.optus.com.au/web/ocaportal.portal?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=Template_woRHS&FP=/personal/...

I am sure they will have similarly priced WP7 plans there. Heck even Iphone4 is FREE on $59/m plans there.

You can even get a nokia e71 prepaid for less than $200
Just a shame they're locked to the network providers...

Unlocking is easy. But anyway, back on topic of WP7 in NZ.
