    Hi guys,
    I am from Australia and i am planning to buy an unlocked focus outright very soon because it is the best windows phone that will work on my network. I was considering waiting untill the new wp's came out but decided to buy one cheap before i get locked into a contract for 2 years. Do you guys know were i could order one from that will ship to AUS? I have found one place over here but hey are $500au and i was hoping i could get one cheaper than that. All help is greatly appreciated.

    I'm not really sure since I don't live in Australia, but could you buy one on eBay?

    Amazon ships mostly everywhere, but they want 499 USD without a contract. You could probably fly to Samsung HQ for that. Good luck.

    You might try something like craigs list if they have that in Australia.

    Check eBay for people who ship internationally. Gray phone, love mine.

    Thanks guys just going to keep looking untill i manage to find one at a good price. There was a next to new one up for sale on an Australian tech forum the other day but it sold in about 10 minutes... Thats how hard it is to get them for a decent price over here.

    I think that once the mango phones are released over here there might be a few people selling the focus' that they have imported so that they can upgrade so i should be able to pick up a good condition one over here for relatively cheap if im lucky.

    just a shot in the dark but cowboom.com has them in stock for under $200(us dollars). i dunno if they ship worldwide though.

    i'd keep checking ebay, one has got to come up soon that ships world.

    I would be hesitant of CowBoom, their reseller rating at resellerrating is really low: Cowboom (Best Buy Co., Inc. / DealTree.com) - cowboom.com - Reviews, Ratings and Prices at ResellerRatings
