Turning an American iPhone Kiwi

I'll be going to NZ for a couple weeks in a few months and have an old iPhone 3G S that I'd like to be able to use there as a local cell phone. Can anyone suggest the best method for doing this?

FWIW, I'm happy to permanently convert it as there's a reasonable chance that this will become a regularly occurring event, taking place for increasing amounts of time. I've read about jailbreaking and unlocking and replacing SIM cards, but much of the conversation on the forums is at least 2 years old and not a little contradictory. I'm unclear on the nuances and implications of each of these solutions and as forum directions can be a bit dubious, I'd appreciate advice from a crowd I know.
Additionally, any direction on how to get a prepaid or pay as you go account there would be great. My goal is to be on the ground and on the go ASAP so any details on prep work / account setup that I can do prior, I would love to hear.
Thanks so much!
