If you bought your iphone from a regular shop you can get a refund or exchange. (need receipt and must be within 14 days of purchase)

if you bought it at Pantip plaza, maybe not. (Caveat Emptor)

Yes you can buy a mobile for 1,000 Baht (Samsung or Nokia) brand new and out of the box...

I don't know why you spent 30,000 on a mobile in the first place. Seems like an awful lot of money for someone who wants to ordain.

Anyway, here is a link to the true website... http://www.truemove.com/iphone/eng/index.htm

They operate the iphone 100% legally, and not as you infer, from the back of a lorry

Sorry just trying to be helpful.

Not in my experience.

MBK, what a crazy place, why do you guys need a thousand cell phone outlets in one mall?

Well, I will see if I can.

Thanks. That is enough help now.

Nathan, neither Bangkok nor Thailand has ruined you financially....but perhaps your desires have.

Your comments about Thailand 'nearly putting you off the idea of ordaining' are unnecessary.

The problem is you came here green. If you had taken the time to find out first, you would have gone to a decent, regular, bona fide shop.

So what if a Mall has lots of mobile shops, why should it worry you?

That said, I officially renounce my participation in the internet forums for all time. So long, and all the best.

Beautiful pictures! It looks like Ajahn Brahm is giving his autograph in picture #40 (but I'm sure it's just an e-mail or something). :tongue:
