I think the Nokia 1616 will suit me fine. However, there are prices around from about $45 - Trademe and other online sellers (like gadgetsonline) - to $99 on Vodafone online store. I suspect the $45 and cheapish handsets are all parallel imports. But does it really matter where I buy my handset from because even the Vodafone item must also be an import?
What are the risks and implications depending on where I buy a 1616 handset from?
Must say that my Nokia 1208 was a parallel import and I had to resort to this forum to get that handset to work on the Vodafone "Hotlink" facility. Might I do that "set up" again via this site/forum?
Thanks for any help and advice.
