Essential phone is down to $250US plus 109 import fees (which should get refunded depending on shipping). Total in NZ was around $500

 

 

Is this phone receiving calls on Spark? I believe there were issues.

Anyone come across any cheap wired IP cameras on there that will work with the echo show? There are some wifi ones but past experience with a wifi camera says that is a bad idea.

Ive ordered one of these show mode docks and the tablet for it to have a play and see how it would go to wall mount it. Seems the cheapest way to get a touchscreen on the wall. Complaints in the reviews are mostly that it doenst work exactly like the echo show so I am hoping the hardware itself is good.

Probably sold out of the cheap stock they had. Try the grey one, that was still $250 when I last checked.

 

I had to try and buy a few times before I received a total less than $400. First try was $403NZD. Tried again and it came in at $397ish. Shipping went down. Not too sure why.

Thanks, just wondering on what basis? Does customs just make the call?

I picked to two Amazon Fire 7's (with alexa) for $49.98USD.   (youshop required).

 

 

 

Got an additional $10USD off, taking to to $49.98, by signing up to prime 30 day trial and purchasing using Amazon smartphone

 

app.

 

 

 

Initially the $10 discount didnt show up, so I placed the order anyway at $59.98, and contacted them via chat, and they said I could

 

have $10 off my next order.   Cancelled the current order, reordered the two Fire 7's, and it was $49.98

 

 

 

Cheers,

 

Mike.
