Only the iPhone 3G and newer can run on XT network.

The original iPhone connects to GPRS/EDGE and XT network is a pure 3G (WCDMA) network.

This handset will only work on Vodafone or 2 Degrees.

You can use either the iPhone 3G or 3GS on XT.

You can't buy an iPhone outright from a store - you have to buy from Vodafone online or from Apple Store online. Apple sells it $30 cheaper than Vodafone.

The iPhone 3GS sold in New Zealand is not locked.
