I just downloaded the Vodafone network approval list. It says :

"The make, model and software version of your mobile phone must match the exact type in the list to

ensure you can use the products and services offered on the Vodafone New Zealand network."

I can't think of a clear way to convey the message i'm trying to get across here, but i'll try.
I know little about parallel imported phones, but are they:

a) No parallel imported phones will be on this list.
b) There will be parallel import phones on this list, which will work with limited ability if they came from oversea, or if from NZ they will function correctly.

What I'm trying to get at is if a phone comes into my possession, and is on this list of network approved devices, and I don't know if it was originally sold in NZ or overseas, because it is on this list will that indicate it is likely to function AOK on Vodafone NZ?

Most phones will work ok for voice and text messaging - nothing should be sold commercially that isn't a minimum ok spec, although I did once use an alpha handset that caused 3 cells to crash once....

For WAP or MMS though, and GPRS Data use, performance may be sporadic/non-existent.
