Im currently using the tx95c but it way out of date, i really like these lines of phone but all the model ups seem to have something wrong with them. The tx160c however looks really good but i have no idea if it is coming to NZ or when. Would anyone have any information on this? I dont read mobile new sources but like everyone else in nz i sure love using the phones! What do you guys think about this model? The only thing i didnt really like about the tx130c was its lack of a little screen on the front for checking time and stuff and i dont think walking around with the face turned inside-out in your pocket would be great for it.

Cheer.

Its looks like a very good phone. Verizon have it but not Sprint which means it most likely wont make it to NZ as we get Spints phones

You cannot connect an imported CDMA phone to Telecoms network. And all those 'leet' phones will be GSM ones that can be happily imported and connected to Vodafone

he posted an empty post.

those l337 phones will all be GSM mobiles.

No imported CDMA stuff will work, at all. Sorry. There is currently no legal way around this (or a practicable and cheap illegal way for that matter).

If you want an 027 phone, you must buy from Telecom (or a secondhand phone that was also bought from Telecom NZ)
