Why do you think that worked?



No idea,
Perhaps because I didn't have my number in the name field (as youshop lets you leave it out as long as it is in line 2 or 3)?
Don't think it is because I canceled it.
The work email ends in .com, but, that shouldn't be used to define it.




Hmmm I have tried all you suggest possibly two times over with no success. The only difference I can see it's the CBC. Mine was ASB visa. But this card has worked two times prior just fine.

A mystery to me??

I just tried to buy one of these off Koogan in Ozz for $AU379 and bumper for $A14. Can't get past the check out as it says one item can't be exported. Can't modify it or delete the order. Have been emailing these guys since yesterday to sort it but have about given up on them. Not paying the 2degrees rip of NZ price for one..

Anyone bought one from them??




Regards,

Old3eyes

My wallet had the same address as the delivery and billing address.
I used www.justfreevpn.com as the VPN.
I populated the phone number with the one provided by youshop.
That's all I can think of.

Some rumours about an announcement on the 15th May, so, perhaps they are opening up availability?
Worth trying again?

Sorry if this has been covered before, but are there any available NFC methods of payment with this phone in NZ ?
Google Wallet is not available, SimplyTapp is not yet launched, is there anything at all ?

AFAIK the only way is to sideload a patched Google Wallet APK. There are some other threads on GZ where people have done this

The NZ banks are supposed to be working on something regarding NFC payments.

Hi guys.

With the recent price drop on the Google Play store of the Nexus 4 to US$199 ( http://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-4-price-drops-100-google-play-199-or-249 ), I am very interested in attempting to import one. Has anyone managed to do this recently? What payment method did you use? I tested using my empty Onesmart card last night and was told it was an invalid credit card.

Thanks,
Joel

My OneSmart still works, just bought a song to try it out.
Make sure you have a US address and telephone number, I just stuck the Shipitto (freight forwarder I use ) address and telephone number in the Google Wallet details.  However once your card has been deemed invalid you may be blocked from trying to register it again.
