Re: Buying mobile phone on amazon

I have an intimate knowledge of this brand.

You won't have any warranty in Australia and because they are no longer sold in many countries, there is no Telstra carrier software.  Whilst it will mostly work, it is very possible that the subtle changes that are made in the software for Australia, will be unavailable.

I would strongly advise against this, not because it's not an excellent phone, but support wise. as it's not technically supported and manufactured for Australia.

If I have helped you, a "Like" would be appreciated.

If my advice is a solution, please acknowledge it.
