I put billing and postal address at my youshop address. Not sure if that will work? Although it appears my CC has already been charged. There is a $502.35 discrepancy between my CC balance and my available balance which usually means either a hold or a charge has been put through. Haven't used the card for a few days so pretty sure that has to be the N5 charge. Unless they just put a temporary hold when order is placed, reverse it an hour or two later and charge when it is shipped?



By confirmation receipt, do you mean the one that says " Thank you for purchasing. Your credit card has not been charged yet, it will be when the product is shipped blablabla"  "ships by nov 5"

Yep that is the one I got.


Cool, that means that our CC has been approved then right ?

I guess we'll find out in a week or so!! Has your credit card balance changed in your online banking?



ANZ Debit card.

 

ANd yep ,  - $454 NZD "visa hold"

Ugh, quick question:

When it finally ships...will i get a notification from the delivery company from google (say ups or fedex etc.) ?
It doesn't say anything in my receipt.

Just tried to access the Play store via Tunnelbear and get the "not available in your country" even when logged out of the Google account. Verified that I have a US IP address . Cleared cookies and cache..

This is getting too hard so i think i'll give up and stick with the N4.. :-(

close browser.
shut down tunnelbear.
wait 1 minute.
turn on tunnelbear (make sure it's set to USA).
open browser (preferably IE10) ...BUT..in incognito mode (private browsing.)
navigate to play.google.com/store/devices

Hmm strange. Tunnelbear has always worked great for me to access the USA Play Store. Worked fine for me about 2 hours ago. Struggling to find an Aussie Proxy though as I want to purchase from Aus.

*Must resist ordering*
Don't worry N4, I still love you.

If this had of been released last week I would have been able to get one as I was in the USA with a T-Mobile Connection.

I'm thinking of getting this one.

 

 

 

It'll be around $30 by the time it lands in nz. 

 

 

 

Reason i don't wanna combine it with nx5 is amazon ships air.

I can buy one fro thr US with no problem but I am now thinking about the LTE issue.

Does anybody know what it's going for on the Australian Store? I might buy one from there instead.

My current provider is 2D but their LTE plans are still unclear.

And I have a pending charge for the full amount on my credit card, so I am assuming they pre auth the card, then settle once it ships
