Given the changes to the activation process (having to be activated before leaving the store), I wonder how those with unlocked first gen iphones will go updating to 2.0 - I suspect it will be a case of wait for a crack?

Any news as to how those with legitimate first gen phones will update?  Will they have to visit a store to have it done?

Yes this is something I'm also VERY interested in.  Given the onerous contract stuff, unless I get a 3G iphone through work, I'm pretty happy staying with my 1st gen iPhone assuming I can unlock it and use MobileMe.

I'm the same.  I use .Mac now and the enhancements that are Mobile-Me will be a welcome change.  Can't say I'd upgrade my first gen phone to a 3g, but would like to get 2.0 up and running.  I guess, to be honest, if I had to ditch my current phone and spend what looks to be a reasonable price for a 3g, I'd do that.

Will watch with interest.

I also found this, although Optus are denying the details...

http://www.news.com.au/technology/story/0,25642,23851759-5016091,00.html

Gizmodo published a "leaked" printout with two columns that outlined an Optus iPhone plan with a $79 Cap and another with a $99 Cap. Both plans appeared to include a relatively small amount of data – 1GB per month on the $79 Cap, and 3GB for the $99 Cap.

The anonymous tipster also claimed the 8GB iPhone model will cost $220, the 16GB $330, and both would only be available on a 24-month contract.

Those look like great prices for what on the surface looks like a great phone.

Pre-order 3G iphone...

"This is a pre-order system to reserve a new 3G Apple iPhone when they become available for shipment. Currently, we expect the first deliveries in NZ by 16 July. THESE iPHONES ARE UNLOCKED FOR USE ON VODAFONE at terms at least as good or better, than directly through Vodafone.  Pre-order clients will receive advanced confirmation of availability and price, and can then place an order which will be filled with priority. For Apple 3G iPhone specifications, check at www.apple.co.nz/store."

While those prices have been denied by Optus the price of $79 per month for one of their $300 capped plans with 1GB data is about what you would expect to may in the marketplace for such a plan for a 24 month contract.

$49 capped plans all give you around $300 of value on all networks and 1GB of data is down to a going rate of $15 now  so if you added a $49 cap + $15 for data you would then have a $15 per month "iPhone premium" for your 2yr contract.

I would guess that those prices are pretty well on the mark..

It's a laugh to read the Gizmodo story and hear all the Aussie's bleating about the $79 plan being too expensive! To get similair airtime usage and data in NZ (depending on a lot of variables such as number of calls etc you'd be looking somewhere around NZ$150 - $200 based upon our current Vodafone pricing.

They just don't know how lucky they are..

I just looked on Vodafone's site and you can get a Talk 150 plan with 3GB data for $130. Not too shabby.

Do you mean a You Choose 120 @ $59.95, plus a no-term Broadband Pro @ $79.95? = $139.90...

Standard VFNZ offering, has been out for many months now... Unsure what a Talk150 plan is though, weren't the 'talk' plans legacy TNZ?

It's a You Choose Base 150 plan - 150 mins peak + 150 mins offpeak for $59.95

I don't believe you can add any data plans to a Base plan however (unless things have changed recently)..
