I know a lot of people are confused and cautious when purchasing phones from the UK, or anywhere overseas for that matter. In this post I will try to make things as clear and as easy as possible for those wondering how to go about it & answer any queries you may have.
Us at Ausdroid & members of the Whirlpool Forums trust in 3 UK retailers:
Each of the three offer competitive pricing and all ship to Australia using couriers (DHL or FedEx).
When purchasing from the UK you are exempt of VAT (tax), so you don’t have to pay it.
Take the HTC Legend page at eXpansys for example:
£369.99 (314.89 exc.)
We only have to pay £314.89 + postage.
The only time you need to pay VAT (tax) is when your purchase goes over $1000AUD, which is very rare when purchasing a phone.
