Hey I've been looking at at this phone, had a look through pricespy and found these guys who seem fairly legit, couple years in business and they have a store so that's always comforting.

LG GW620 (http://eking.co.nz/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6&products_id=233)

They're selling this phone $200 bucks less than Telecom.Obviously it's not gonna work with xt out of the box but I have read a lot about flashin android 2.2 onto them and it seems that you can change the radio fequency the phone works on pretty easily.

This Thread (http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=39&topicid=68539&page_no=1) has been particularly helpful.

Can anyone confirm that a Korean model can also be changed like the XT ones in that thread? Just want to be sure before I buy it!

Seems a lot of hassle for the sake of $200, not to mention warranty issues

Software update will not effect the warranty

Well thats good then, the rate I go through phones though warranty probaly isnt an issue lol My current phone almost met its death in the washing machine, has a few quirks now but soldiers on.

So no one can confirm?
