Ahh Brian don't bring back bad memories ... I bought 50 Motorola phones in china in 1998, for 100 bucks each and paid a guy 2 bucks per phone to change the text input from Chinese to English, long story cut short, they were Chinese language ONLY, and couldn't be converted, so I tossed them all in the bin, at the hotel I was staying at.

So all I will say Brian is Good Luck :P

Now you are talking Brian, I know Nick, its post to JZ with a sticker saying nicked from hong kong, and post it to him, and then we can see his smiling face on border security, when he opens the box and has his door kicked in by 25 customs agents, now that will give the forum something to talk about for months to come.
