    Sorry, but I don't think the iPhone 4S is coming to New Zealand for a while, and when it does it will be strictly 'contract only'. I'm in NZ and I'll be buying the iPhone 4 soon, because its unlocked so I can go on prepaid. Perhaps you should do that too, because it'll be quite a long wait, and when it does come it will be sold out for a while :( Sucks to me an iPhone user in NZ, doesn't it?

    Yeah, a December launch seems quite possible. All I know is that New Zealand gets products like this launched a fair while after the rest of the western world.

    Oh, and when it does come out be prepared for everyone to rush to get a 4S before they're all sold out!:p

    Wait for the 3rd phase of the launch, most likely November.

    I'd just order through Apple NZ website if I were you though, likely when it gets here Vodafone will force you to sign a contract of some sort to make some money out of you.

    Step 1.) fly to America

    Step 2.) camp in line at an apple store

    Step 3.) buy your iPhone 4S

    Step 4.) fly back to New Zealand

    Step 5.) enjoy being the only guy in New Zealand with an iPhone 4S ;)

    Spoil kid

    There's no point of asking when NZ is releasing because there's NO news! Just visit MR and i am sure there will be news on the frontpage as to when iphone 4s will be releasing in other countries. Go out and play some rugby rather than worrying.

    Wow, In NZ you can only buy an iPhone 4 8Gb for $899, not much of a choice.

    I was going to do this, actually ordered 2 iPhone 4S.

    Then I did some researching and found out when it gets here the Customs are gonna charge me GST + Customs Fee... I thought what a load of bs so I just cancelled. :D

    Firstly, grow up. :rolleyes:

    Secondly, no-one is going to be able to tell you anything other than what Apple has announced. If you want to impress your buddies at school, the only way to get it before anyone else is to fly to Australia and get one there. Who is to blame? Probably Vodafone. Will they loose my business? Probably - their contract subsidies are hardly compelling anymore (in fact they are basically non existent on the cheaper plans), so if we don't get a launch date soon, I may just follow my own advice (hey, the office is kind of like school - got to be the first one with the new gadget. ;) ).

    haha I remember the days of having no responsibilities. Enjoy them while they last. :D

    I just looked on the magnum mac website, and if you want an iPhone 4 in NZ that has more capacity than 8GB you gotta pay ridiculous prices. Basically you need to pay $25 per extra GB, which is insane! Flash memory doesn't cost anywhere near that! I can go out and get a 4GB memory stick for $15-$20, which is less than a quater of the price you pay per GB for iPhone memory. And in theory memory in the iPhone should be cheaper, since its done in bulk and doesn't require extra packaging & shipping like a mem stick would. :mad:

    So you end up paying $200 extra for a 16GB iPhone (pretty much $200 for 8GB memory) with comes up to $1100 total. Then if you want a 32GB iPhone 4 you have to pay another $180, which is a bit better, at $11 per GB, but its still overpriced, and it pushed the price of a 32GB iPhone 4 to a total of almost $1300:eek:

    The Android Galaxy series are looking more and more attractive now, as they're so much easier to get, and they're selling for a lot more reasonable prices in New Zealand. I would like to get an iPhone, but its not looking feasible without blowing an extra $200-$400 to get one with a decent storage capacity :(
