the iPhone runs on GSM 850, GSM 900, GSM 1800, GSM 1900. what frequencies do you think the 3g iPhone would run on? vodafone new zealand has 2100mhz and 900mhz umts. Some countries use umts 850 mhz and at&t that has the iPhone in the usa uses umts 1900 mhz.

so for the iPhone 3g version to work around the world it would have to be umts 850,900,1900,2100mhz

New Zealand will possibly also have UMTS850 depends what Telecom does with their network.

if you go buy how limitied the 2G iphone was then i wouldnt be suprised if it only supported UMTS2100, then again AT&T got some 700MHz spectrum so it could have that too.

Considering there is nothing in the 700MHz band I wouldn't be holding my breath!!

AT&T aren't planning on deploying their LTE network until at least 2012/2013!

As for 850MHz in New Zealand I think you'll be looking at a similair timeframe for Telecom with them jumping straight to LTE.
