Hi everyone


I am wanting to upgrade to a windows phone 7, I was wanting any recommendations and where to buy?
 I was looking at amazon and quite like the look of the Samsung GT i8700  unlocked for 272usd before shipping, but they dont ship it internationally. Is this the way to go or is there somewhere in NZ were you can get these at a competitve price? Also will the current windows phones get the mango update?

Thanks in advanced

Omnia 7 or the HTC trophy would be the best WP7 phones currently available.

All current phones should get the mango update.

Note that the new mango phones are coming in october with better hardware.

Not exactly sure where the best place to buy would be however.

Samsung Omnia 7 unlocked available from a parallel import shop in NZ.

The mango update will hit anytime between September and November.




Do whatever you want to do man.

don't expect any service from einfo though. they are terrible from my experience.

Suggest you consider one of these: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Mobile-phones/Vodafone/Samsung/auction-399964009.htm

the one I got (and multiple other gpforums members) was from Germany, so even though it is being sold as 8gb it is actually 16gb. I got mine for around $450. A great buy really.

Mprezd: don't expect any service from einfo though. they are terrible from my experience.

User experiences vary... I haven't had a problem with them, used them multiple times. They have a physical store (with staff and stock), which works for me.

yeah I'm sure not everyone has had bad experiences. All my bad experiences are when I have had to return something - not buy anything from them. 

GPForums online retailer thread is probably still the best place to get a good view of any e-tailers

You can get the Htc 7 Trophy from Vodafone outlets for $499 at the moment, fairly good price considering that is a locally bought phone with a full warranty through a physical shop, not parallel imported.
