, posted: 11-Jun-2008 18:53

in the original press release, still up on apple.com, vodafone announced iphone for both contract and prepay.
Australia, Italy, New Zealand and Portugal will be the first Vodafone markets to offer customers iPhone 3G for purchase on July 11. iPhone 3G will be available via Vodafone on both prepay and contract price plans which will include great value data bundles. Other markets will follow later this year and full details of specific launch dates and price plans will be made available soon by individual Vodafone operating companies.
and then, halfway through the day the version on vodafone.co.nz is gets edited to remove mention of prepay

Screen shots of the before and after of vodafone suddenly changing their mind are up on nzmac: http://www.nzmac.com/news/nz/vodafone-nz-iphone-not-for-prepay.html Are they re-negging on their announcement of great value databundles??
