Lol I like the old fella, "I wanted one, but I'm not paying what they're asking".  and? How the hell does 
Apple products escape discretionary spending, and into fall into the necessity pile?

The only problem with the Cambell Live video is hes talking about a luxury item, hardly doing a public service.

Ohh well soon as Apple Store lists it I'll just put the order in there, save the heart ache some people seem to be experiencing.

It would be pretty sad if VF are just waiting to see what Telecom is going to offer.

They should be leading the way as the official carrier and put some plans out there they can have confidence in, not nervously waiting to see what the opposition are going to do and then undercut them by a few dollars.

One thing I can 100% guarantee is that it is not canceled.

Vodafone would never let that happen and they would be crucified in the press.

Yeah, seems very unlikely to me. I am just hoping that prepay folks will have more than a snowballs chance in hell of getting a phone tomorrow, but I am beginning to suspect that may not be the case.

Maybe they got pulled as the official carrier & Apple is going alone.. Somethings going on behind the scenes.

Just received from Telecom New Zealand:


Telecom’s XT Mobile Network offers Apple iPhone users 3G services and speeds across the country along with competitive prices on mobile data plans.

From today, Telecom is offering Smartphone users the opportunity to double their data for the next 3 months when they sign up to our new 500 megabyte Smartphone Extra.

This means customers can add 1GB of data and 2500 text messages for $38 per month to any prepaid or postpaid voice plan on XT until the end of September.

Also, from 1 August for as little as $6, lower-level data users can now get a 50MB Data Extra, giving customers approximately five thousand Facebook page views per month*.

Telecom Head of Marketing Management, Paul Taylor says, “Our XT network offers customers a great mobile data experience and we have added new data plans to our already competitive prices so Smartphone users can make the most of it.”

Last Friday, Telecom confirmed that for $29.95 per month, XT customers can get 500MB worth of data or for $18 per month customers can get a total of 240MB on both prepaid or an open term postpaid plan.  Telecom also offers a 2GB and 4GB data plan for avid data consumers.

Telecom stores are offering micro-SIM cards to XT customers to make it easier for them to use the latest Smartphone and notebook devices.

The 500MB Smartphone Extra offer is valid until 30 September.

*The data quantity example is an estimate only based on billed activity for internet use browsing m.facebook.com on a mobile phone. Actual data amounts transferred will vary.

Thanks @freitasm, still a bit too rich for my pocket considering there is no subsidy for bringing a phone across on contract.
