    I haven't got it yet but I read somewhere here a little while ago you might need to jailbreak the phone first or something. I couldn't find the topic anymore.

    Not unless you have a locked phone - as far as I'm aware, all iPhones sold in NZ are unlocked.

    You need to install iTunes on a computer and connect the iPhone to it to activate it before you can use it.

    Apparently you didn't used to be able to use the iphone on prepay accounts. However with the new competition, I think they now let you.

    Even the one's VF sell? That's pretty good considering most other carriers lock it down.
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.

    Yes even those . From memory they started to lock phones around the time Telecom announced XT, and got shot down *very* quickly by the commerce commission for monopoly abuse. As far as I'm aware, they haven't locked anything since, and if they do sell you a locked phone they're required to unlock it for you.

    Note that the 'most other carriers' you're referring to are all overseas, and usually in countries with a choice of several providers.
