Yes, you can use the iPhone on Telecom XT or 2D networks if you wish.

iPhones sold in NZ have never been locked to a network.

Except for a brief period over a couple of weeks just a couple of years ago when Vodafone decided this would be a great idea... And it backfired.

You might still find some low priced handsets locked to Vodafone - there's a Vodafone 0800 number you can call to unlocked those for free.
