Unfourtently its not possible. Well not on that phone at least. There are phones that have both cdma and gsm components in it (ithe model name escapes me but a client has one), they are really expensive however. It will be a lot simpler in November when Telecom get there new network up and running, there are several dual sim gsm cell phones that will work with both networks (not at the same time) but the click of a button and it will change sims.

Edit: Here is a phone that has both cdma and gsm capabilities link (not the one that my client has). This "world mode" phone wont work with vodafone nz though as its been locked out by telecom.. tisk tisk

The Samsung W531 is easily unlocked to work successfully on the Vodafone NZ network, for SMS and voice calling (no other functionality such as WAP or MMS though)

"The Samsung W531 is easily unlocked to work successfully on the Vodafone NZ network"

Would that mean "The Press of a Button" to switch, or when SIM inserted = vodafone No SIM = Telecom?

Apparently this phone theoretically does and cost about US$250 delivered to NZ.

but the local experts on here tell me that you can’t use non Telecom phones on their network in NZ.
