I've been reading these forums withe interest since I discovered them a month or so again. I'm still using an old school nokia, and am keen to get into the smartphone game. Unfortunately, with a young family, funds are pretty limited. I have some family members going to the UK in a month or so, and some other family members already living there. I was going to get them to pick me up a orange SF 2 or T Mobile vivacity when I spied the launch of the G300 at a similar price point in the UK. The G300 has just launched in NZ and they are selling it on prepay (PAYG) for a ridiculous $450 NZD, about 225 britsh pounds. It's unlocked admittedly, but an absolute rip-off compared to what they are charging in the UK. So I thought I'd get them to get me a PAYG G300 for the UK. I'm keen to starting mucking about with Android and this forum has a wealth of info!
I thought I'd get them to use the phone for a week or so to make sure it works ok. Is there anything else I need to think about. Obviously the charger won't work without an adapter. Can any mini USB charger work or does it have to be a certain voltage or something?
I thought I'd also get an sd card from the UK too as they seem to be a bit cheaper than here. I've seen a couple of good deals on mobymemory.co.uk for class 6 cards. Is class 6 fast enough for video etc? Are moby memory carsds ok? Any other good memory retailers that are better?
Thanks, any suggestions welcome.
