    We would be interested in that one also. We are justtrying to get our Razor V3 phones unblocked - on Orange at the moment. It would be nice to know we could take these quad band phones over there with us to save yet another expense.

    We bought new phones in the uk to bring over with us and they work fine. Just make sure they are unlocked :D

     

    Lots of different pay as you go deals and contracts here. We went with Vodaphone and for every 'cap' of $29 we buy we get $130 worth of calls :eek:

    Morning

    Yes, we brought our UK phones with us unlocked and simply brought a pay as you go SIM card here until we decided what to do and then went into a contract. We brought a top up card in the UK simply to text folks once we got here - obviously it did not last long, but they all had peace of mind.

    Got out phones unlocked at some dodgy market store in south wales for about 10 pounds each but it did the trick.

    Good luck, see you the other side .....

    FYI, 3 phones do not need to be unlocked if you use the 3 network in Aus, according to the customer services chap I spoke to. 3 have a big presence in Australia so that'll do me...will get my better half's Orange contract Nokia unlocked before we leave.

    My son swapped from optus to 3...only so he could get the phone! He says the coverage is no where near as good as optus...also for the first 3 months we had to chase them for charging for the phone, also they were not too truthful when it came to downloading stuff:mad:.

    Just remember to give a months notice on the contract phone. We brought all our mobile phones over and they work just fine. We are on Vodafone. Remember to bring enough adapters for the phone chargers though.

     

    I have just had a new Nokia for my birthday over here.

     

    Regards
