Default Wooooohhhhhhhhoooooo!!!!!!!

YES!!! we finally have them.
Went down to London on Friday, got there at 0800 and we were tweleth in the Queue!!!. By the time they opened it was going round the building!
An E Mouse, Avoided the Nero Cafe and just stayed in the queue, wife and kids buggered off to Trafalgar square and left me to it though.
I've updated the time line and it can be found at:- http://www.webappcabaret.com/austime...yApp.jsp?id=98

To all the Diabetics and others that have an illness. DON'T WORRY just be yourselves take care and everthing will be fine

Soooo... It's off to perth in about six weeks. not quite sure where we will settle just gona suck it and see!!!

A question. Can you pick up like a pay as you go sim in Oz? Got an unlocked 8210 will it work?

Also a BIG thanks to you all. I have read some interesting threads, found lots of useful info, and felt a lot less like I'm the only one STRESSED!!!!!!
Also a Big up for Ian Harrop my consultant. Thanks Ian if you look at this site, certainly felt easier than if I had tried myself.

So now it's down to partying, tying up the final bits and watching the next month and a half fly by..

I will keep logging in till I go and I will most definetly be back online as soon as I get there

Good Luck to one and all your time will come soon

Colin

Congratulations Col,
Hope you'll have a great life in Perth.
In answer to your question on mobiles try Optus Express Pre Paid Mobile, they do a start up kit for those who have their own handsets, not sure which ones they cover though.
Good Luck
Sue and Ian

Congrats Col. We'll be not far behind you - End of September to Brisbane.

As regards mobile phones. I have a Nokia 8210. When we were there in May, I bought an Optus prepaid sim card for $40 (which included $40 worth of calls)! Worked fine - just watch out though - very expensive. I think the type was Yes Optus, but not sure. All the phone companies do it though - it will not be a problem, so shop around for the best deal.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

Congrats Col and co, we're going to Perth in 16 days time, and I still can't believe it's really happening!

Maybe some of us regulars here will all meet up one day? It's been great knowing that there are so many others in the same boat, like-minded people who know the despair of waiting, and the excitement of "that" letter arriving in the post. It's just not something you can talk about with the relatives.

Hi Col

We'll be arriving in Perth the last week in September (after a blissful week of chilling out in Brissie...thought we'd go see what all the fuss is about)

We should all get together for a huge barbie once we're all settled and back online!!

Let us all know how it's going.

love sophia xx
