Don't we know this tactics already from cheap camera sales where suddenly the discounted price is only 'valid' if some crappy adapters, filters and other rubbish needs to be purchased in the bundle? Skip it, unless you are adventurous enough and you have $800 to spare easily...
think about it.....chinatown shops WILLING to sell cheaper by $200 etc..they DUN like making profits?
Just buy what u need..not those extra stuff like...cases...external batteries...a WOW bluetooth set....
google Mobilesquare for prices..look for Wilfred. im not advertising for him..
Just that been buying /selling phones from him since my Nokia days..his place is one of the best there is..in terms of the REAL deal..without any crappy free this free that..(add another $200 for these..)
get my point?
My friend actually got a deal offered..around Chinatown....he wanted a Nokia 920....(built in 32gb..no memory card slot..) and ..guy actually asked him top up some cash for a 32gb micro sd card..) Does that even make any sense?
OK. Read all your advice loud and clear. I guess, I thought that the rent is cheaper in chinatown so they can undercut a bit. Whatever the case, its clear that it is not safe to buy from them. Thanks!! Will try mobilesquare instead.
