NZtechfreak: Whelp, pre-ordered mine with Warehouse Stationary just now. First time I've purchased locally in a very long time. Fortunately my local Warehouse Stationary is nearest the national distribution centre, so with luck there shouldn't be any freighting delays.

They said nationally there were only like 8 pre-orders. All Geekzoners?


I guess people don't associate The Warehouse with high spec cell fones..

Oh, exciting, someone else who has had hands/eyes-on with the S3 - what other information can you share with us?

2DM preregistration now open

was about to go to WHS on way home to pre-order blue one today, might wait a couple of days if there aren't that many pre-orders for them to fill.

Yeah I was the second one at Tory Street last week, I actually said to the guy at the counter that they should advertise it a bit more!

Huge Difference between $100 and $120 a month!

VF are going to copy I believe and then I am going to be an unhappy camper. 

Right now my $100 plan presents much better value than the $120 plan. I get land line calls and voice mail calls free, yet to get same thing on a smart data plan $190 a month!!!

networkn: What, No mention of Audi ? :) Vastly superior to both brands :)



Probably right up until 1944 when their factories were destroyed in a huge air raid. Must admit, they are getting here again.

Telecom has won my buisiness, I need 3gb a month anyway so the extra cost isn't a problem. I even experienced an incredibly helpful chick on their online chat help, hopefully the start of a pleasant experience, long may it continue. I had a great run with my Desire, but the one X just doesn't quite do it for me.

Hi Guys, sorry couldn't help from registering to ask something about the S3.
I would like to know if any of you have any idea of where and which provider will be bringing the 32GB version of this highly anticipated device?

 

I've been digging everywhere on the net only to find Vodafone UK will have them. But by any chance of getting it locally from Vodafone NZ? 

I asked Warehouse Stationary and they said they will only bring in 16GB model and everywhere else mentioned here as well.

 

The only company that hasn't yet released any information is Vodafone NZ. I'm looking for a specific version and strictly 32GB. I've read on this thread that someone asked JBHiFi and confirmed to have 32GB version. I went into the store and asked one of the Sale guy and he hasn't got a clue about this, he even tried to brainwash me that 16GB is enough for me. But I have a Galaxy S2 and it is not enough even with the 32GB MicroSD card. Internal space is far more important because I have bought a lot of HD games on Play Store and it consumed all 11GB. So I've made up my mind that I'd rather have more than what I could chew than having not enough in a long run.

 

Please share if you have any information regarding the 32GB. I'd happily for premium for the extra 16GB :)

Jb Hifi is definitely getting it. If you are in auckland call up one of the stores and find out. I confirmed again this morning and the guy specifically asked about what size I was after 16 or 32 GB

Wow thank you guys.

I'm in Hamilton region :( JBHiFi here know nothing about it. The guy I talked to even dishing store like WHS, Harvey Norman and Noel Leeming to me and say that I should not trusting those guys. He said those price is just an estimate and load of **** (sorry that is what I think he wanted to say, but he said it in a polite way). 

He keep saying that Vodafone will come back in a the last minute and beat all of those carriers and stores. But I highly doubt that Vodafone would. They have this prolong history of ripping customers off with their price tag on devices. I'm really tempting with 2Degrees deal right now but upsetting with the lack of 32GB version. I might give JB Auckland a call from the 0800 number. :)

I'm excited with the 32GB. Plenty of space for me to keep my NAND Flash and ROMs. 

Is Noel Leeming taking the order for Telecom or Vodafone?

See a few pages back re discussion on 32GB. It's cheaper to buy an SD Card than the higher capacity model and your only real advantage to the higher capacity would be if you need more than 80GB total storage.
