This is a huge coup for Vodafone NZ to have over Telecom! Vodafone's 900MHz UMTS network is going to be fantastic!

It'll be good to play with visual voicemail at last :)

Are you sure this 3G iPhone has UMTS 900mhz? Would be good to see it happening and with BIG subsidy I hope! Looks like 3G iPhone and N82 is going to fight for my attention! As long as there's Exchange ActiveSync support, then both are potential! I am seriously wanting to leave Windows Mobile camp... :-( sad really (I don't expect my imate JasJam getting WM6 upgrade...).

will we see something bigger than 16gb also? I'd love a 32gb iphone! So who wants to buy my old one? haha.

Unless you know more than what information has been released to date, and have inadvertently 'let the cat out of the bag', its not 3G...just the current version iPhone.
Or can you confirm that? (that it is 3G)
Or was that a simple mistake?
Or have you accidentally said to much? to soon?

Will it be a flat "all you want" fee like in the US? At current NZ data rates, a 3G internet phone could get very expensive!

Now that, definitely wasn't how I guessed it would go! Wow.

Hmmm 3G iPhone specs dont say there is support for 900MHz UMTS.
UMTS/HSDPA (850, 1900, 2100 MHz)GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)2100 is supported however.
Those are from the US site, so I guess there could potentially be a version for NZ with 900 support instead of 850 maybe. .
