Hey Guys

I am gonna pre order the Galaxy S II from mobicity. I was wondering.. What do I have to pay. Obviously the mobile price + do i pay any other fees. Is it a simple courier and where does it come from. Do I have to pay the courier delivery guy like for clove.

What is the process.?? I want to buy the phone but hassle free., if you know what I mean.

I purchased one just last week. It took around five days with really accurate tracking and the only extra on top of the phone price was 19.90 for insured delivery. I'm sure it is far quicker than clove as they come from Hongkong.

No GST to pay at all it even say's on the invoice "GST 0.00". they will ring you shortly after you make the purchase to confirm. Just pay, confirm and deliver to answer your question.

I wonder where they get their pricing from. As an example it says the regular price of a 32GB Wi-Fi iPad 2 is $1619 and the sale price is $1289, which is still $340 more than Apple's RRP!

you do not have to pay for GST if you order from mobicity.co.nz (you will have to pay GST if you order from mobicity.com.au)

i have used their service before to buy samsung galaxy. have a chat with their team through the Live Chat button if you have any question.

At the timei couldn't get checkout to work on the nz site. But if they told you you'd have to pay gst then not worth taking the risk. The au site includes vat which isn't charged if the product is sent overseas.

Warning: Mobicity cheat the system by faking the value of the phone on the customs sheet to avoid having to pay GST. I would be wary of this in case the item is lost or damaged in transit it will be covered at their fake price instead of real.

I know a friend bought a $600 phone from them and the invoice on the courier package said AU$327 or something which at the time was just under NZ$400 to avoid being stung by GST.

This is also the reason why Mobicity was removed from Pricespy. http://pricespy.co.nz/store.php?ftgid=11624
