Can I get an XT micro Sim and keep my VF number? 


Yes you can port your Vodafone number across to XT.

JimmyC: I can't believe they're still not commenting tho. Can you imagine standing in line for a product for perhaps several hours only to be told oh, sorry, we don't actually have any... That will only add to the pile of poo VF have got themselves into...


I don't know if it is all vodafone though... Apple have been the only ones releasing info so far and this parallels their iPad effort (or lack of)! Why vodafone have pulled all their iphone stuff is definitely a mystery!

Highly doubt this is due to Apple's secrecy.  Vodafone Australia released pricing info yesterday or the day before, and as far as I know, so have carriers in the other 14 countries besides Aus and NZ that are releasing the iPhone tomorrow.  Less than half a day from the supposed date of the iPhone 4 launch, Vodafone NZ is the only carrier not saying a word even about whether the thing will be available or not.

Kitanai: The 3G on XT might be great, but for what you get an iPhone 4 subsidised on the Vodafone iPhone 40 plan is the best deal around. ?I did a price comparison with my last three bills with XT + 2Degrees and that plan still comes out on top, plus a 400ish $ discount?

Cry?


Curious, Voda's smart 40 plan already locks you to 24 months. Why would they still subsidize the phone if people go with that plan regardless?

I will spend the extra $2/month and switch to XT if Vodafone don't do a subsidy just to shove it in their face.

Yeah thats a good point, I did think about that. That would leave NZ being left out purely due to lack of stock then I guess...

scotteffone: "I just called up Apple Customer Care. They said everything was on schedule for the release and we should be seeing the iPhone tomorrow. Good sign to brighten the mood"

Hasn't the internet made stuff like this crazy!


Maybe on track for Apple but not the retailers themselves?
