Okta Touch for sale

Excellent condition, bought in June 2008.  Only selling as I have won an iphone.

The phone has been upgraded to windows mobile 6.1, which is awesome, very stable, enables GPS plus lots of other fixes.  Aparently this upgrade is officially coming to Telecom soon(unconfirmed -see posts on GZ).  Currently running manilla 2d on phone - gives it an awsome feel (actually uses a lot of things the iphone does), but you can easily downlaod and install lots of different variations.

The phone comes with all origional accessories (including box) plus 2 extra cases (1 rubber case and I metal case) plus car charger and 4gb micro sd card.  I will also include a copy of Garmin XT installed with opensource NZ maps.  Great maps, works really well with Touch GPS, includes voice guideance, turn by turn, POI, etc

The reason this phone should be attractive to people is  firstly is it a great phone, excellent quality, no call drops, secondly the GPS, thirdly if you sign up to a 24month plan before June 09, telecom will give you a $299 credit towards a phone on the new WCDMA network (you need to see Telecom website for full details), you can then keep the tocuh as a GPS, MP3, game, video unit.  Sounds like a pretty attractive deal.

So why am i not keeping it? well part of the deal with the misses for keeping the iphone is that I get some cash for the touch.

It can sell for around $300 or more on trademe so I am looking for something just over $250.

Feel free to ask questions, all offers considered.

Bugger just as you try to sell, the touch phone is being offered for "half price" ($250-$300) if you sign a new Flexi or Freetime plan ($250 on flexi Anytime and about $285 on flexi Mytime)

Remember that is a 12 month contract however

Emz21: can this be put on prepay or does it have to go on a certain contract?

No, unfortunately telecom doesn't allow "Data Devices" on prepaid because they are 'not compatible'. So yes you have to be on a contract, unlike on vodafone where you simply chuck any SIM card in and dont seem to have these 'compatibility' problems.
