Yup I've bought 2 phones from them 9 a hero and desire) and have been very happy with the service. They did run out of stock with the desire which was annoying. Best of all neither had GST when they came in.

Clove are great (I blog for them, chose them to host my content because of how good they are, lots of integrity), many here have purchased from them.

No hidden costs, except you may get done for GST on arrival (I always do, but those who choose the Royal Mail shipping option often don't - its sometimes even quicker than DHL, so you don't really lose anything going that route).

I bought my galaxy s from clove and as the others said no hidden costs. I went with royal mail and didn't pay gst.  

I would definitely use them again.

Forgive me for my ignorance, but do you need to pick them up from somewhere or does it come straight to your house?

Also the only option i have is DHL or Airsure in delivery...

You choose your delivery address. Airsure left it on my doorstep so i would suggest get it delivered to a work address or use DHL. Airsure is royal mail.

Wish i could upgrade :)

I didnt pay so i dont know but im sure someone else can clarify.  I was under the impression that the phone would be held at customs until gst has been paid.  Thats if they picked up on the fact that gst needed to be paid. I guess mine just slipped through.
