blah, 23 Oct 2008icic....
well i only went back to HK to stay for a couple of months in the summer cux i nee... moreOIC, by the time you re-visit HK, chances are Zn5 will drop to around US$300, if not less. You'll still get all the free gifts from the shops I mentioned.
100 came from a former bus route which served my old home in Jordan and Causeway Bay...but the government killed the route after the opening of the stupid WHC.
Even though I'll not likely to afford an Aura, I'm quite excited to read the news about MotoAura through Mobile Review.

well i only went back to HK to stay for a couple of months in the summer cux i need to get back to canada for school..
actually i wasnt into cell phones since like 2004 or so.
Whats the story behind "100 Moto"??
blah, 23 Oct 2008so the memory card that comes with the Zn5 is 2gb? which brand is it?
and ya..i used People... moreMost shops should offer 2GB card free of charge nowadays. Brands do vary among different shops. I.e. when I got my E6 from Fortress in July, I got a Toshiba microSD...even though the phone was supposed to use SD. (adapter was included) Other places like Wilson offer SanDisk cards, which I personally trust more than any other brands.
No memory card from Peoples where I got my Zn5 though. Just happened I bought my Z8 with an 8GB card back in June (which cost me a hefty US$50!) but my Z8 has trouble supporting the 8GB card. Otherwise, a new SanDisk 8GB card runs about US$30 in HK nowadays...so cheap!
BTW, if you lived around Jordan before 1997, you might know why I call myself 100 Moto...:P
so the memory card that comes with the Zn5 is 2gb? which brand is it?
and ya..i used Peoples when i was in hk, their plans are pretty cheap. i saw an ad recently, probably for the hallowen special, $35 hkd for 850 mins. Here in canada, its like 25$ cdn just for a mere 100 mins and text msg cost u for 10cents each.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2008Times Square as in "Tone Lor Waan"? I don't know "Tone Lor Waan" or what. That's place near Ex... moreHK$2950 is the manufacturer suggested retail price, which should be the same almost everywhere (trusted shops who have "official" goods from Moto) in Hong Kong.
The special deals come with either:
1)Though network service provider, like Peoples, the only network withOUT 3G, has been quite agressive in terms of attracting customers with US$30~$50 off on handsets, with only 1 month contract (starting about US$7 a month)
2)How much more "free gifts" one can negotiate from the salesperson...such as screen protector, extra (non-original) battery, battery charger, memory card (disoucnt on upgrades), card readers, more discounts on other accessories, etc...
i read somewhere that i have to pair for bluetooth transfers. is it true?
Can any one post or show where to access user guide for ZN5 because i would like to know more about her in dept. Thanks !
