    Default Doing a bulk order of Nexus phones, anybody keen to join us?

    I'm gonna be ordering a Nexus 4 for me on Thursday, and about half a dozen mates too... and my bro's getting a Nexus 10 as well.

    Just thought I'd post on here and see if anybody else was interested as well. I'll basically be taking care of the ordering and importing and things, and we'll save on shipping and whatnot.

    Anyways, the offers there

    how much will they be roughly? not that I can afford it at the moment.

    By the way: I knew someone else who got some kind of ipod (or whatever it was) one for him & more for his friends, from overseas. Because he brought in a few he had to pay GST on the lot as he was classed as a 'importer' if he had of got just one there would of been no GST because it would of been seen a personnel import. (at least I think from memory that is the truth of it) anyway all his mates had to make a second smaller payment.

    I'm keen, depending on how much the Nexus 4 ends up costing and what kind of ETA we're looking at.

    Delivery prolly take around 2 weeks, so last week of Nov
    The 16GB will be around NZD$525
    GST / Import Duty is paid on anything other than the Nexus 7 (on its own), so we're just doing a bulk order anyways and lumping it all together, so can't save on GST. If it's under $60 for the Import Duty & GST, they "let it slide" coz it's not worth the hassle. Roughly anything over $350 is likely to be picked up, so we mostly just save on the shipping / forwarding and stuff.

    Plus it's a TON cheaper than NZ retail!!

    Think of what you could do with the money you save on the S3!!! The Nexus 4 is almost half the cost of an S3....
