The sim slot in the back of the 6585 is actually a RUIM slot (CDMA). RUIM's aren't currently used by Telecom NZ. I don't know if there's any plans for support to be added at a later date or not.

You have to learn more about mobile networks young padawan... :)

To unlock a mobile phone is it illegal in NZ or not? In Europe means jail, I wonder what's the situation here..

Mahuhu: To unlock a mobile phone is it illegal in NZ or not?
There are no locked phones in New Zealand.

Vodafone NZ will sell unlocked phones, since there's no more subsidy. Telecom NZ uses CDMA, and other CDMA operators in general will not connect an imported phone.

I would rephrase my question:

If somebody bring his network locked GSM phone to NZ and wants to use it on Vodafone so he get it unlocked (I saw in a forum member signature that he can unlock phone..) is it illegal here or not?

The standard procedure would be to request the original operator to issue an unlock code - but some people don't want to pay or the original operator is not very user-friendly (a friend of mine had problems with Orange UK, even after paying them took him almost 6 months to get the code).
