Vodafone: No prepaid iPhone 3G in NZ

updated 01:40 pm EDT, Wed June 11, 2008

Vodafone NZ

Despite a series of conflicting news releases, Vodafone has confirmed that there will not be a pay-as-you-go version of the iPhone 3G available in New Zealand. NZMac.com first spotted the confusion in statements from Vodafone and Apple New Zealand which announced both contract and prepaid versions of the iPhone in various press releases. Vodafone cleared things up this morning, saying only the contract versions will be available in New Zealand and Portugal beginning in July 11.

NZMac says this will come as a huge disappointment to many New Zealanders, especially since it appears Vodafone will make a pay-as-you-go version available in other countries. The iPhone 3G will be available in 22 countries on July 11th, and an additional 48 nations by the end of the year. The 8GB model sells for $199, the 16GB costs $299.

    iPhone in NZ is a rip-off

    It'll cost you about $2500 for the cheapest iPhone on a 2-year contract with low data caps, and speckled NZ coverage at best. Plans are available here (vodafone's site collapsed at the moment): http://williamchong.com/2008/07/08/iphone-3g-enthusiasts-are-very-very-enthusiastic/
