vinnieg: Called Noels here too, same story as above "no discount on mobiles"

Went into Tory Street, discount given :)

Second GS3 arrives next week! For the wife, to stay in her good books

Will probably gift the other phones to my family members, time to upgrade a few of them


S3 sold out in all branches here at Auckland except Wairau Park which has 6 left in stock and they are giving it for $839. Too far for me to travel at this time of day and by the time I finish work all 6 will be gone anyways :(

WHS is my only hope now!!!!


Yeah when I was in buying it, three other people were buying it....wtf,  sold out here in Porirua, but some remain at the Hutt stores.  So they said "we'll  order one now off the Hutt Store and it'll arrive next week, possibly Saturday"

All good to me, I'm happy to wait a few days, so is the wife.  I have to actually teach her how to use the Play Market, she hasn't use it with the other hand me down phones I've given her




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

Does the play store need much teaching? She should pick it up pretty easily I'd have thought.

Haha, it'll be "click this icon", then actually use your phone for apps instead of texting, calling, and music!  She plays games on Stuff.co.nz through the website, it'd be better if she got some quiz/sodoku apps off Play I reckon

Maybe I'll root it, and put Google Music on it too, so she can stream my music, now that she's sharing my data connection

bignicko: another -1 to WHS!

Got refund from WHS on my 16GB blue pre-order, went to Noel Leeming Moorhouse Ave in Christchurch. They had to double check on discount, but I also now have a receipt for a Blue 16GB SGS3 purchase price after 20% discount $839.20 plus 33 flybuys.

Now the waiting starts again.


How long do you have to wait for?

I checked one out at Vodafone today – was extremely impressed with how vivid the screen's colours were. I must say though, I could easily see pixels (must be the LASiK) which was a huge disappointment in comparison to my 4S' screen. Wasn't enough to put me off though.

I'm now seriously tempted to get one of these bad boys since the iPhone 5 won't be here before October. When you all say WHS, is that Warehouse Stationery?

I've bought my sgs3 white 16gb at JB hifi yesterday at $944
Loaded all my contact info etc to my new s3 and reset my old iphone4 (i'm selling it off tonight)

Then I've found out all about Noel Leeming's 20% off sale this morning from this thread!

So I've returned my s3 to JB (got a full refund) and bought another one from Noel Leeming (Westgate) at $839 with 30 something fly buys points.
I was lucky enough to get my hand on their last one!

Thanks everyone for sharing the valuable info!!! Saved me another $100 :)

I'm in the same situation.

When I called them they said I'll be getting it this afternoon as I live in Auckland City.

But I'm not sure if they will come today by 5 or 6 pm. and I got a reply from WHS customer service representative that I'll be getting it next week probably on tues.

It's so ridiculous. They said it'll take only 1 business day to get it but they are not sure if it will be arrived my house by today.

sucks!

Banana?

Posted before but it looks like it got lost.

JB will price match the Leeming's deal, I have just heard from their support office - straight from the horses mouth!

EDIT: and they have stock.
