Hello, a 13 MP camera is wonderful. My old HTC leaves a lot to be desired as far as that goes but the one thing that makes me stick with HTC is that I have to learn how to use the icons and that makes me stick with what I know. There seems to be so many choices too, which is confusing because I don't want to make a mistake and get stuck with a phone I don't like and so I asked my friends about their phones and chose the HTC after that.

I tried to tag my photos here and saw an error message and yet you have similar words. I have a lot to learn here as well. Wish me luck. Byeee

Hi telstra,

does this mean you can offer a better deal on the outgoing S3 model then? Perhaps something a bit more competitive with the other carriers? Its hard to consider paying the highest rate for a model when you know the new improved version will be released soon...
I know the S3 is still a great phone, but I'm sure you can understand the principal...

May not be known yet but will this be released in 4G and 3G version or will the base model be 4G, I really hate having to wait months for a 4G model to come out...

It's very likely that we will be getting the quad core rather than the octa-core due to production challenges on Samsung's end.

 

Please note that Samsung should have 4G on both models. However, the octa core version will have very limited support for 4G since it's still a new technology but the quad core version should have better integration with existing 4G standards worldwide with just a few compromises.

Hi Telstra,

 

If your official pricing is starting from $80 plan plus $7 monthly handset, you will need to do better to keep existing customers. Other telcos are offering much lower pricing starting $60 plan a month. Hopefully the article was incorrect. Time will tell.

ZDNet has stated that the S4 will be on sale at Telstra Shops this Saturday for an outright purchase of $816. Plans are pretty terrible.

 

I will definitely keep my current $50 1.5GB 4G plan and be totally "off contract" that way.

I find it hard to believe that the above posts are real given they are all talking about Telstra's 'amazing pricing' and not their lack of support on e mail set up incompatibility with bigpond and the galaxy 4. I just read the instructions and as usual, bigpond email isnt compatible with anything.... Hi bigpond - no I dont want to call during office hours and speak to someone overseas with a lick of english about my new phone. I paid for the device, and I am paying for your service. Make your e mail set up easy and you wont need to employ telecommunication reps overseas.
