I suggest you get it locally from a parallel importer like gadgetsonline or phonesdirect etc. You'll get local 1 year warranty and support locally. You can ask them if they can get it for you. Nice phone by the way...

I rang the auckland number and spoke to some guy in chistchurch who said they had the phone so payed for it and 3 days later got a confermation email and a courier tracking number, when i checked to see where the package was it was leaving europe. the package arrived 6 days after i payed for it. The phone was unlocked and sim free which was good as just put my nz vodafone sim card in and away it went. No hasels payed about $300 all up which i did not consider to bad for a phone that i cant seam to get from vodafone and they aparntly ant bring in anytime soon as they already got there xmas phones in. already gave the phone a bit of a beating and seams tobe still going strong. wold not wont to have to change sim cards to often as its pritty hard to get into all the time.
down side it needs a euro converter for plug like $5 from dse (dick smith electronics)

well i got the phone :) its real nice

i tried using expansys first. they were useless. i placed an order when they were out of stock. kept checking the order page everyday, still said out of stock. after about 2 weeks i went on the expansys website, looked at the phone and it said 13 in stock. i actually had to email them to tell them they had the phone in stock.
i then cancelled the order as they were to useless and found a better site. uniquemobiles.com.au got the phone in about 3 working days
