It does not sound like your phone is locked to the network. Though your are using the same network (in name) in NZ the phone should still pick it up as a different network and request a network unlocking code. However I believe I know your problem, in New Zealand Telecom run only on the HSDPA 850 signal type. This means you would need to use an "a" variant of one of our phones to get reception and if your handset came from Vodafone UK it will be the "i" variant. With this being the case you are not likely to get connection to Telecom with this phone in New Zealand and you would be better off using either Vodafone or 2degrees.
