I am trying to assist a Tahitian friend to buy a cellular phone here in NZ to use in Tahiti on their only network, Vini. Should I advise them to buy a Vodafone or a Telecom phone, or it does not matter? - TIA

According to Telecom's site, XT phones can roam in Tahiti on postpaid. I don't know about Vodafone.

How about locked / unlocked? Is it relevant?

To clarify: Do you want to roam there or use a local SIM? Also, all NZ-purchased phones are unlocked.

Vodafone NZ does not sell any SIM locked devices I am sure it's the same for the XT handsets on Telecom NZ

Thanks, guys. Yes, it's for use exclusively and permanently in Tahiti. Interesting; I didn't know that NZ does not have locked phones currently.
