Hi guys i m planning to buy the nokia e72. ideally would have wanted the one to work for XT but it looks like its ages away and vodafone also seem to be taking a while to release and when they do it will be pricey. can someone recommend a parallel import place to buy? i also looked at this Oz shop unique mobiles. Any recommendations in NZ or Aus?

JohnR works for the big red giant so got his free (though they do have his soul)

I brought mine from MobileCiti in Sydney but they won't ship overseas (I had a mule).

I had pretty atrocious emails back from UniqueMobiles.

We do not know the release date ourselves as the handset is still in testing stage

Poor english, responses that I consider rude (probably related)

Make your own decision :-)

Nokia was testing the phone back in August / September not the carriers

I only got this just over 2 weeks ago
