I used shipito, service was great and really easy. Only downer is that my FedEx Int Priority will be at least 5 business days after customs have sent on the phone. It arrived in NZ on Monday and is only being released by customs now.

Its supposed to be 3-5 working day shipping time. Now is already 3 days and still no dice. USPS suck.. paid 40bucks for the shipping fee, for Express Mail International.

xlevus: Humm, Got my phone. No form of rebate form in the box... Or is it via a download on Amazon?


Technically it's not a rebate but a prepaid visa card which you can use in the Ovi store (which currently isn't much use for N900 owners as the Ovi Store isn't compatible yet with this handset).

here's the link for the form.

I think you'll have to use Shipito.com (or another freight forwarding company) to recieve the prepaid visa card from nokia beacause in the fine print on the form it says it's for US products only & only for legal US residents.

It also says not avaliable in all locations so even if you do get it sent within the US it may not be avaliable for where your freight forwarding address is located. My Shipito.com address is in California. Did anyone get an address for Shipito.com that isn't located there?

maxximuscool: Nokia NZ won't touch Oversea device unless you pay them to do it. No warranty in NZ.
I can almost taste and feel my N0kia N900 right now but my dream has been broken due to USPS Express Mail International Delivery system. I chased after it since yesterday and today to find out where the item is at. I called NZ custom, NZpost, Contact my Sister and Brother In law to contacting the USPS regarding the shipping status.

==========USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL (3-5 Business day)===========

Your item left the United States from ISC MIAMI FL (USPS) at 5:05 PM on December 15, 2009. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

* International Dispatch, December 15, 2009, 5:05 pm, ISC MIAMI FL (USPS)
* Arrival
* Processed through Sort Facility, December 15, 2009, 7:49 am, MIAMI, FL 33112
* Processed through Sort Facility, December 14, 2009, 7:28 pm, ORLANDO, FL 32899
* Acceptance, December 14, 2009, 5:15 pm, ORLANDO, FL 32814

================More than 80hours later, Still no update=================

It's been 4days since it is shipped and yet nothing comes up on their database system. Tracking number is completely useless and stupid. Beside I might get the Custom tax and duty as well. This is bollix.

Bad Exprience with USPS service. lesson is learnt...


Dude it's 6 days before Christmas! Mail all around the world roughly triples at this time of year so just have some patience. Be happy that because there is so much mail flooding in and out of the country it's likely customs won't even look at your package.

As for a warranty, you do have one, it's just with Nokia US. To claim it just use your freight forwarding address. Not that difficult to work out...

Hey guys. I have a question. Its abit off topic, but still relates to the N900. If I was to purchase a N900 From Overseas (or maybe even a Parallel Importer in NZ) what would I do for a charger? Im guessing it wont be a NZ Charger, Where can i buy an Adapter? from to connect it all up into NZ Wall Sockets.

Cheers in Advance.
