I think this means that it will work in New Zealand:
The unlocked iPhone includes all the features of iPhone but without a contract commitment. You can activate and use it on the supported GSM wireless network of your choice, such as AT&T in the United States.* The unlockediPhone 4oriPhone 4Swill not work with CDMA-based carriers such as Verizon Wireless or Sprint.
If you don’t want a multiyear service contract or if you prefer to use a local carrier when traveling abroad, the unlocked iPhone is the best choice. It arrives without a micro-SIM card, so you’ll need an active micro-SIM card from any supported GSM carrier worldwide. To start using it, simply insert the micro-SIM card into the slot on your iPhone and turn it on by pressing and holding the On/Off button for a few seconds. Then follow the onscreen instructions to set up your iPhone.
but am I right? Can I plug my Telecom sim card from my HTC Touch into the iphone for an instant connection on Telecom NZ?
The other issue will be charging it - I know the USA uses a different electricy system and although I can adapt the plug how would I deal with the power supply difference?
Wondering if anyone else is using an imported phone and how you deal with this.
Thanks in advance for advice,
