I think it's very poor of Apple to sell restricted phones as "unlocked". I remember somebody saying that they would report Apple to the Commerce Commission over it, but I don't know whether that actually happened or not.
taniat: I keep reading that other features are not available if you use an iphone on Telecom but no one has said what feature. Any idea what else is gone?
I'm still tempted to get an iphone and a t-stick for broadband instead - but can you use the Telecom "Internet on your Mobile" $1 per day or $6 per month for 20MB etc with the t-stick? I just need occassional access to download a file so the $29.95 broadband fee would be overkill for me.
