Did you have to pay any taxes on it when it arrived in Oz?

I had to shell out 20% or so when I imported a TAM back in 98.

You shouldn't have to pay any taxes on anything under $1000 ( usually ).....

I know this is off topic Matt, but I just clicked on your Myspace Link.

I just have to ask, why do you want to meet Bill Gates? Are you going to kick him in the nuts for us?:p

And as I said earlier, have a look at the iphone threads, i think most of the questions you have are covered there in some way, we had a bit of an iphone overkill here a few weeks ago when they where released in the US. :cool:

And can I also ask, What actually provoked you to make the sensible move to Apple?

LOL I have to edit that myspace... Bugger lol!

Yup Fully understand the iPhone overkill thinge

And why i switched to apple.. Thats an excellent question.... Kinda hard to answer.. Ive been looking at apple products for years just loving the way they do things. Ive been running windows vista since launch and was kinda getting annoyed about a few things with it...

Prob the biggest thing why I switched... im on holidays from work and got holiday pay.. CHA ching.... APPLE

Great reference in "Last of the Time Lords" (season finale of Doctor Who S3)...

No thats for the 8 gig model. I dont think the seller made much of a profit on it.

Hi all at MacTalk,

long time reader, first time poster.

my sister bought me an 8GB iPhone through her friend in the US. It took 5 days to get from Apple, to my sisters house in Melbourne. All orderd online and no hassles from customs.

It's just working as a iPod/PDA atm untill all my supersim stuff arrives :)
