I wouldn't want it from a mobile provider... you'll need to flash it with a custom ROM to get all their garbage off it (Vodafone load screen or whatever, Warriors updates, Stuff app, Herald app, other stuff I don't want being randomly installed as phone updates).

On top of that, you pay a higher price for it- around $200 more for the S3 a few months ago- so you're essentially paying for spam and bloatware you didn't ask for and can't uninstall without installing a custom ROM. 

For a phone like this, I'd rather use the manufacturer's ROM and updates. But that's just me being paranoid.

correct and if you check the stock availability at DSE it shows in stock at most of the stores around AKL. Selling at $999.

Telecom posted a video on their YouTube channel yesterday showing lockscreen security I think it was. And 2degrees leak came thanks to an update to the Snapper application. Plus it's starting to show up on retailer's websites
