Taking into consideration...
The bugs that have been reported (and unlikelyness of firmware updates from VF)
The fact that lots of stores here are expensive (and vodafone act as a middleman increasing the price even more)
And finally the fact that i'm going to Australia in September.
... i think i have decided to try to get one over there. As the title says im heading to Brisbane and im after an unbranded K700.
If anyone knows any good stores I can contact please let me know.
Expansys looked good but the following put me off:
AU$67 for postage to NZ!!!!
Instead of 10% Oz interest you pay 12.5% NZ interest once it gets in the country.
^^ This would mean it would work out to more than the NZ price :(
Can anyone comment on the possiblility of having Expansys mail the phone to my hotel and then claiming the tax back when i leave (thus solving both problems). This would probably save me about NZ$180 :D
Should set up a business - who wants one? :P
