Hi all ,
I was convinced that the CDMA phone was the way to go so I trotted into Telstra yesterday to order the phone and in car kit . "SORRY SIR , THAT PHONE IS DISCONTINUED" .
Does anybody know where I can buy one in Sydney or mail order one from somewhere else .
Thanks ,
Willie .

Truckster,
It was the KX414 that I tried to buy . Is that the best one ?
Thanks ,
Willie

I have the Nokia 2280 CDMA, and can highly recommend it. (prepaid). Only negative is the battery lasting only 4 days on average...

Aston,
I went to that website - it was great thanks - it allowed me to search by "CDMA" . What really surprised me , was that none of these phones seem to have a cradle accessory so you can talk hands free , charge up and access an exterior aerial for better reception in the bush .
I don't like the buttons on the Nokia 2280 , and know from previous threads that a hands free cradle is not available for the Kyocera 3245.
I really wanted a CDMA , but it looks like I am buggered.
Thanks to everyone for their help on this enquiry .
Willie

You can get a generic portable kit for Nokia that does all the things that you want it to and not expensive either, I was looking at it in my local Telstra shop the other day.

Truckster,
I went to the Kyocera on line store that you gave me the lead to .
The KX414 photo was there , but the only "purchase links" were for the KX414 accessories .
I emailed them and asked them if it is still available . No answer yet .
Thanks ,
Willie

I bought the Kyocera 3245 at a Telstra shop in metro Adelaide (earlier post)....bit under $400...includes the 3 piece access kit......so far the thing has performed very well....not a hint of dropping any calls in and around Adelaide....looks a winner so far.

Willie, I purchased a Kyocera 3245 phone from a Telstra shop in Brisbane last December, complete with a genuine full hands free car kit so they do exist.
Good hunting.

Hi Willie,
The latest Telstra Shop book has the Kyocera 3245 listed & has a "fully installable car kit"... I have a Kyocera 3035 (over 2 yrs old) & works a treat except at Innamincka & Cameron Corner, but who needs it there anyhow.

John

1. At Halls Creek (Is he really lost?)
