Yes they would work but you would need an adapter which are cheap enough. The legalities side is a little different as it wouldn't be approved to use by telstra.


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Depends on how much you love them I suppose - if you know someone who needs new phones then I'd do a good deed and donate them, and buy new in Oz, but if not, and you're stocking a container, then shove it in the box and see!

 

What's the worst that can happen?

Does anyone have a spare instruction manual for a baby girl?

Thanks, know what you mean but don't really want to bring things for them not to work when I could have given them to a caring new home.

It can depend on the frequency they use. Our UK ones did work but the quality of reception was poor so we got Oz ones.

Customs asked us about the frequency as the bands used for emergency services in UK and Oz must be different and they have to be an approved frequency.

 

We had the same issue on returning to the UK!!


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:

Thanks for all your help. Looks like they will be finding a new home somewhere!
