No.  Last time I looked the planet was still orbiting around a small star and not a large piece of fruit with a bite out of it.

Sure can.  There's Telstra (XT compatible), Vodafone, 3, Virgin and of course, the Apple store to choose from.

Just great my bus is absurdly slow and packed today for some reason. I bet there are a few potential iPhone 4 purchasers on the bus too.

Yes but for $75 it can be unlocked officially.

If you buy from Apple, it comes unlocked, so Apple is the way to go.

Hmm, driving to Christchurch soon. Will be all sold out by the time I get there though! Wonder if they may get another shipment released tomorrow or Monday?

Its gone International!

http://www.macrumors.com/2010/07/29/second-round-of-iphone-4-launches-begins-in-australia/

Things appear to be going less swimmingly in New Zealand, which is two hours ahead of Sydney. According to local reports, Apple's deal with Vodafone has been canceled in that country as all mentions of the device disappeared from the carrier's site yesterday and no launch plans had been announced. We also received word that Vodafone has posted signs in its stores this morning stating that the launch will not be taking place today.


Sign posted in Vodafone New Zealand store window

The change would appear to leave customers scrambling, with unlocked iPhone 4 models at unsubsidized prices set to be available through Apple's online site as their only option in that country, although rumors also suggested the device might be available through other retailers there.
A Vodafone spokesman declined to comment and directed questions to Apple, whose representatives have not yet returned nzherald.co.nz's calls.

But it is understood that Apple's deal with Vodafone is off and the gadget won't be available from New Zealand stores tomorrow, only online from Apple.

Then again, another rumour gaining ground on Twitter is that retailer JBHiFi will be selling the iPhone 4 tomorrow.

Update
: We've heard that both Vodafone and JB Hi Fi are claiming that a "shipping error" is responsible for the cancellation of today's launch in New Zealand.

Just got a txt from Vodafone:
"Great news! iPhone 4 is available from selected VF stores today-midday. Stock is limited so only avail on account. 4 selected stores see vodafone.co.nz/iphone".

They are broadcasting it now via TXT :)

Would be ironic if this whole mess was caused by a souring of relationships between Vodafone and Apple, and yet the only way you can currently get a phone is if you commit to a plan with VF. Jobs and Co. would've really stuck it to VF then, huh? :-)
