A quick search of Geekzone will show you the correct APN to use for internet access

Why not install the carrier bundle found at www.iphonewzealand.co.nz... this may solve your problem, also check that 3g data is on in settings general>network>enable 3g = on

the night I put my sim in it worked, and then the next morning it didnt. The only thing that changed, was that one of the guys at magnum mac plugged it on to put it onto xt, because even though my sim was in it and working, apparently it wasnt running on xt.

If a XT SIM was in the iphone it can't attach to any other networks in NZ its not possible

Magnum mac are incorrect in this case
