Have the note, but the size is becoming cumbersome, Don't want to spend the money on the SIII and the SII is too much of a drop of screen size. This seems to be a good happy medium.

No good for 3G extended on 900Mhz orange on the coverage map

Very misleading site as well with this " Telecom 2G " Telecom does not run any 2G network

Some rural areas have 3G 2100Mhz this is shown on the coverage map using Red

I would advise to get a SGII that supports 3G / UMTS on 900Mhz

I don't want to drop to the smaller screen size. I don't really stray out of the main cities anyway.

Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch are my main my travels. If I am going out of those cities it's to get away from the hustle and bussle for a weekend with no intenion of needing internet or email.

well it won't get much support in upgrades over here, unless you are going to go to custom roms and even then it isn't what you call a popular model but still roms available.

Once you put GST on top it starts to get close to S3 and given you don't want to drop screen size too much the S3 is a better option, also resale value is diminished as it isn't quad band.

Do mobiciti charge GST on top? Doesn't say it anywhere. Thought under consumer rights you had advertise if it was plus GST?
