I hate telecom. they won't even let you buy it out right. JUST to get you on contract to squeeze every penny out of you

That is incorrect. This has already been pointed out. You can buy the phone without signing to a contract. Please check your facts.




It’s not that I’m agoraphobic, it’s just not safe to go out anymore.

 

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Select "Pay Monthly", then "View more plan options" and then select an Open plan. No fixed contract and you're on your way.

This is not a contract. Buy the phone at full cost, pay for a month and walk away if you wish. $39 more to get it at launch if there are no other local options is surely not that much?

When a major product is launched, availability is usually limited. Telecom are looking after their customers and selling the product in a controlled manor. Vodafone have done the same thing when required (Previous iPhone releases etc).

you tell me to get my facts right. well they are dude. YOUR facts are wrong. an extra $40. not all of us wipe our butts with dollars bills like you may... lol

so don't full stops me, close sentences me I am wrong me. You are incorrect. No one has pointed that out and you cannot purchase without signing a 1 month contract. Please check your facts, BRO

You're complaining over $40 on a $1200 phone? And it's still not a contract.

I'm out of this line of dialog. Does not compute.

Hi everyone,
Longtime reader/fan of this forum . Would like to say as owner of a note2 since dec last year, im itching to get a note3 however they become available to me.
Having come from iphone/ipad previously (which I enjoyed very much) I can pretty much guarantee as long as sammy keep making the note series-theyll have my money everytime-loved my note 2 from day one and still do.

Regards,
Hamish.

Hi Hamish, and welcome to Geekzone.

How did you find going from an iPhone to the Note 2 as far as physical size is concerned? Did it take long to adjust? There's quite a big difference!

Thanking you :-)

Had an overlap of a few weeks before the iphone 4 sold and was initially thinking id made a mistake.
As soon as the hand adjusted to the size(week or so tops) there was absolutely no going back for me.

I know there has a lot been said about different country variants. Most of the NZ sites I've checked list default values for options, does anyone know if the NZ models feature the following?

USB 3
4K UHD video playback

And lastly, the availability of the 64Gb model?
