And it’s really straightforward - way easier than some of the previous unlocks.

  1. Sync your iPhone to create a backup of the configuration within iTunes (just in case something goes wrong and you need to restore to 1.1.3).
  2. Upgrade the iPhone to 1.1.3
  3. Follow the instructions at iClarified to Unlock Your iPhone with ZiPhone GUI (Windows). I used ZiPhone 2.2 on Windows and didn’t have any problems with SMS or dialing crashing the iPhone after the unlock.
  4. Open Installer and add the XK72 repository http://xk72.com/iphone/repos
  5. Within Installer, open the Tweaks (XK72) category and install all 1.1.3 packages - Caller ID update (1.1.3), NZ Phone Formats (1.1.3)
  6. Set the Region Format to New Zealand. Settings > General > International > Region Format
  7. Set the APN for Edge to direct.vodafone.net.nz (leave Username and Password blank). Settings > General > Network > Edge > APN.
  8. Change the Voicemail button so it dials 707 rather than nothing. Manually dial *5005*86*707#.
