Managed to pick up the last S3 from WHS Kilbirnie at 9:20 am for $840. Very helpful shop assistant had one left because the person who had pre-ordered it decided they wanted blue. He was really worried that he wouldn't sell it and met the $840 price as soon as I mentioned it. Decided not to push for the extra 5% - I was just relieved to be able to get it.
Had the option to pay on Q card etc, but used goldcard instead because we pick up the flybuys and get an additional 2yr warranty etc.
It's reading 100% charged now, but I might just leave it a bit longer. Need to get SIM cut too.
What shall I do with my (still pretty good and running ICS) HTC Desire? might chuck a data-only sim in it with no credit and let the kids use it. Or perhaps a-live-in-the lounge remote control.
