I haven't tried this. It looks simpler than the Shipito method. 


jamesyb0i appeared to have some trouble with shipto.com forms  (notarised?) that went away and he hasn't said why / how that happened....but cautious me didn't want to fall into any such potential holes, so I didn't do a shipito purchase. 


myusabox.com are based in New York, so this may avoid the California sales tax "issue". 

Have a look and see what you think. I may try this one.

Expansys are now selling the Nexus One. It may cost more than buying it direct but it'll save a lot of hassle I think.

8d52797c436: The UK version is 3G on 1900/2100.....which doesn't include the primary frequency bands (850 or 900) for either TNZ or VFNZ. The US version (UMTS Band 1/4/8 (2100/AWS/900) apparently has a better frequency fit than the UK version.....unless Expansys simply omitted the frequencies not used in the UK (900).

Ah ok, sorry I completely forgot to check which version it was they were selling.

8d52797c436: It's hard to know if the specs are complete. As 900 isn't used in the UK, maybe they just left it out of the spec....but then selling it in NZ and leaving that out makes no sense either....unless they don't actually know ("so many phones...so little time!") :-)
