I need to purchase a Iphone 4GS 16gb OUTRIGHT unlocked.

Apple and Vodafone retails them for $1049 and Telecom retail for $1029

Anyone  got any suggestions on where i can pick an Iphone 4GS 16gb  cheaper than $1029?

$1029 is pretty cheap.

There is no margin in these for retailers so other than a parallel import you will probably not get one much cheaper than Telecom is doing.

Have you check with PB Tech? They seem to run on minimal margins, but I would be surprised if they were any cheaper than Telecom.

Will Telecom sell you one without a plan/SIM?

Yes.

Yeh I shopped around last year and Telecom XT's price was the cheapest then I think, $1029. Its not that big of a difference but its something none the less. That's also unlocked, without a sim and without contract and all that lovely stuff, so its yours to go anywhere. Since it's $20 cheaper than everyone else, you can use that extra cash to buy a sim for your chosen network since it works on any NZ network. :D

I could be barking up the completely wrong tree but I remember once upon a time seeing something about some parallel importers selling used iPhones as new ones. 

Basically, the phone was used in another country re-furbished and sold as 'New Zealand new'. 

Does this still happen or is there a way to avoid it?
