Also be aware that Telecom are turning EVDO off in Novemeber, which means that the internet access speed will drop back to basic CDMA, which is more like dial-up.

I expect that there will be a few of these phones for sale in the next few months....

enahs77: Trader not returning emails,telecom no help trade me sugested small claims court


I am currently taking someone to the disputes tribunal (small claims court) because of a faulty laptop i got off TradeMe it costs 30 dollars for claim's under 1000 dollars.

The first thing you do is request the sellers details from Trademe here's a link on how to do that http://www.trademe.co.nz/help/627/taking-a-disputes-tribunal-claim. then you use the details to make the complaint. Remember to bring supporting evidence to court i am still waiting for my court date to come had to wait approximately 3 months still waiting now. I know that we tend to trust in Trademe after all the good experience we have. Sadly the people that use the site sometimes let its credibility down. If i have learnt any thing from my bad experience with the laptop it would be to use Safer Trader when buy things that are worth a lot of money.
This is the problem i had
