What am I doing wrong??
I did see "write protection enabled" a bit stumped, any help appreciated.
timmmay: You'll probably have to buy one parallel imported. A quick google also showed the S4 mini dual SIM on trademe.

Are the S4's sold at electronics retailers locked to their advertised networks? Because Warehouse Stationary has the "2Degrees" Galaxy S4's on sale for $150 cheaper than the "Telecom" ones. Will I be able to switch back and forth between any of the three networks without hassle if I want to? Because when I got my current phone, an LG P500 two years ago, it was advertised as 2Degrees so I asked the salesman at Dick Smith if it would work on Telecom which I was on at the time and he said yes. It worked fine in Rotorua where I bought it but when I left and came back down to Wellington it would no longer connect to the Telecom network.
And also for anyone in the know, why are phones so much cheaper on these obscure, mostly online only stores like Mobile Station that show up on PriceSpy. It's really tempting to try them out... guessing they're parallel imports though?
Help would be much appreciated :)

timmmay: Once you take into account GST and shipping parallel importing is barely worthwhile. I looked into it and ended up buying from Telecom. 2degrees plans are cheaper, but even in central Wellington coverage was much better with Telecom - far more cell towers.
