TradeMe cancelled my auction for my Acer Liquid tonight and sent me an email saying it didn't comply with NZ electricity regaultions. I had included the UK power supply in the auction.
Maybe people here know this, but I didn't as I BOUGHT the phone on TradeMe back in March.
So everyone importing phones from the US or UK shuold be aware that if they sell them on Trademe, the power adaptor that came with it cannot be part of the auction.
HTC Desire and Nexus One owners, take note.
