Hello All

 

I have been trying to find the above mobile phone within NZ and haven't found any such.Are those phones not available any longer, or just not available in NZ?

I don't believe any of the carriers brought in the dual sim versions but they are available from parallel importers.

Thanks guys/ladies. Colour is not so important. How much you can trust the importers?

 

Is there a shop rating somewhere else as I do not think too much of the PriceSpy rating?

I have no bad experiences with expertinfotech, I have purchased around 5 phones through them, and my father numerous photography related items. They have a physical store in Auckland. I have used their online purchasing recently and went with no hitch. Can't say anything for any other parallel importer. The gold one was cheaper last time I looked.

PS by the way, you can download and flash NZ firmware from whatever NZ carrier you desire on to the dual SIM version using ODIN and it works sweet. Get firmware from updato.com or slowly from sammobile.com
Also it is possible to get both Sims registered on 3G+ networks if you follow this guide:

Sorry no link tagging as I'm on crippled mobile site

...xda-developers...

 

Thanks @1eStar

 

That and more is what I have been doing with my S3 though it is coming to the end...

 

more regular at xda-developers than out drinking, that's for sure... and I'll see how it progresses with expertinfotech.

Is there anyone else here who had good experiences with parallel imports?

Go on, take a brave pill. I wouldn't trust any old parallel importer tho. One with a brick and mortar public facing store is far easier to deal with if any issue should arise...
