So I have found this great phone that seems pretty perfect for what Im after....but BIG suprise it hasnt come to OZ yet :( Anyone know anything about it and when its hitting our shores??!?!

I have been looking at purchasing one of these from an online store (not ebay), that imports them from Hong Kong, it comes with adapters but what other issues could occur? Anyone purchased a phone from Hong Kong? The have a service centre in Victoria, Australia so you can contact them if anything goes wrong during the 1 year warranty...Im just a bit nervous about the whole thing :S

There's some specs on it.

It has tri-band GSM, and HSDPA on the 2100mhz band: the same 3G band that everyone uses 'cept Telstra. So you'll be right running it on networks here at least :)

Aside from that, it should be fine to import, provided it's unlocked.

Hi Girvo - Just wanted to confirm....Can I use this phone on the Telstra Next G network? I am currently with optus but I am going to Telstra in a regional area and need Next G.

Thanks SO much for the specs and advice, looks like a good phone to me!

It's not NextG.

What Hill said.

You'll be able to run it on Telstra, but not on NextG. I *think* Telstra have a UMTS network on the 2100mhz 3G band however, but that's a lot slower than NextG.
