Bloody stupid editor loosing my message.

OK, yesterday I searched a site for hours finally settled on a phone that came in at my budget and had 90% of the features I wanted. only to realise at some stage i had been directed to an aussie site

this is the phone - can't find the original site now of course.

Anyone know...

a) Of a NZ stockist
b) Whether it will work in NZ

Thanks

Not sure where to get it in NZ but don't you know anyone in Oz who could post it for you? DSE Oz will take an NZ credit card - Ive done this before got it shipped free to a friend who then posted the item to me. With the item landed it was about 70% less than the Telecom price at the time!

Also, not sure what your requirements are (eg do you need dual sim?) the HTC Snap (Telecom S523) can be picked up for around $130 in NZ if you are after something with a keyboard and non-touchscreen,

Dual sim is needed, as is a camera, and wifi is the added bonus. 

This just seems to have the best Camera at this price and is from a brand I have heard of

NZ has the g6600 model which from what i can see is identical except for the camera, its only a 2 MP , and probably the main problem no wireless. 2degrees sell them and i bought mine for $79 with a sim pack , but i also use a Vodafone simcard in it as well.

That phone doesn't appear to be dual sim, which is the main reason I want the other phone.

I have found a shop that apparently does ship to NZ, although it is $40 shipping, which is why i would prefer an NZ retailer
