My HTC Hero in Kuwait.jpg

So, after all the drama, I finally got my HTC Hero, my first impression of the phone is great loving the built quality, feel and design of the phone. Background processes/multitasking is major for me. Need a few more hours to know my way around the OS, but the notification bar is awesome. Till now the phone did not disappoint.

    where can i get it in Kuwait and for how much , thanks

    • http://uptill1.com Triple-A

      We got it from expansys.com which is based in the UK, for about 370 british pounds without shipping. you can find it at N.’s post http://uptill1.com/2009/07/30/my-htc-hero-has-shipped/

      and as far as getting it in Kuwait, i doubt it is available now you might try your luck at sharg where all the phone shops are.

    Triple A , i have never tried shipping before so can u tell me how it works? i dont own a credit card so whats an alternative to it so i can use it for shipping from this site or similar sites.

    Plus with DHL delivery does it come to my home directly or do i have to deal with customs?

    Thanks

      Well, Expansys.com uses both credit cards and money transfers, these are your only options of payment.

      As for delivery, DHL will deal with customs, and deliver the goods to your door. You will still have to pay the customs fee though.

        How much custom is charged for getting such shipments in Kuwait?

  • arooona

    Do you think I can find htc hero at eureka kuwait ?

    • http://uptill1.com Triple-A

      you might, but u can also check in sharg but no guarantees.

  • AN

    What’s the custom percentage for gettings things shipped from expansys to Kuwait!?

    • http://uptill1.com N

      AN: I don’t know exactly the percentage. But I’ve been charged 10 KD for the first order and 15 KD the second for custom charges and almost 10 KD for DHL express shipping

    Where do they sell HTC phones in Kuwait anyway?
    And what phones are available here?
    Please reply, thank you!

    • http://uptill1.com Triple-A

      R: HTC phones are usually sold in Alghanim Electronics, Eureka maybe Electrozan or the phone shops in sharg, al-Jareer bookstore and Eurotelecom in that order. And obviously the supplier whoever he is. You might have trouble finding the HTC Hero as this is a new phone, but to tell you the truth i havent check recently so maybe its available now. The Touch Pro 2 and Touch Diamond 2 should be available in Kuwait.

      UPDATE : HTC Hero and other HTC devices can be found at http://www.kuwait-mall.com

      they will be about 15% more expensive than other places but they have availability.

    And the touch 3g?
    Have you heard about that?

    • http://uptill1.com N

      Yes, the HTC Touch 3G has been in the market for a while now. I think you can find it easily. Unless you meant the HTC mytouch 3G which is a T-Mobile branded Android phone so I think you wont find it here.

  • arooona

    Did you face any problime with your htc hero ?
    I heard that it’s becaming slow after a while

    • http://uptill1.com N

      aroona: its not that it gets slow after a while, after installing a ton of apps that have backround processes slows down the phone, you have to frequently kill some apps.
