sidders80: Is anyone using the IR Blaster as I can't see NZ in the list when I go to HTC TV app?


you have to set it up with some random country. Works fine as a tv control but you won't get the channel guild and other functionality from there

sidders80: Does anyone know how to move photos in download folder to gallery or set up as a wallpaper?


Hi, I had this same issue. You have to go in to the downloads app (it may be hidden from your app drawer, it was on mine) and select the image you want then press options > set as > wallpaper and your away.

Would be nice if they would save in the gallery somewhere though.

i am looking at getting the Otterbox Commuter case for the One. Does anyone have prior experience with these cases? Do they add much bulk to the phone?

I do have one of the Rock cases that I got from Ebay. It is a hard plastic case. Quite sturdy - but will not protect much from drops. Also, it was a pain to take it off the phone. I was scaared i might damage the phone.

I wasn't getting this option at all. I downloaded quick Pic and it has solved the problem for me.

When I ordered my Galaxy S4 the Warehouse site said 3-5 days delivery.  I ordered it around 3pm in the afternoon and it was delivered late the following day.  Add another day if you are not just down the road from the phone supplier the Warehouse use.

I also think the "in stock" indication on the Warehouse site is reliable unlike the one on the Dick Smith website which seems to be more of an "aspirational goal". :)

I would like to know please from those that have been asked to pay GST by customs when your phones come from overseas, is the GST amount calculated based on the value of the item declared on the parcel or are there other charges as well?

Thanks in advance

The declared value + freight is what they calculate the GST on.
