People really shouldn't flash firmwares that are not meant for your phone. While they might be 99% identical, there are some differences like the 3g/4g bands that the device supports.

I bought the G900F in Hong Kong and works perfectly well in Australia on Vodafone 4G. I also flashed the UK BTU firmware over the stock ZHU firmware and simply brilliant.

I think you limit yourselves buying the G900I version as the G900F has far more options for flashing stock firmwares, and works perfectly well in Australia. The G900I version reminds me of the S4 Mini (i9195T version) which was Vodafone/Telstra only and never received the 4.3 update, or any others for that matter.... Better to get a phone that has world wide coverage, than one that's limited to Australia if you care about timely updates.

FYi, if you check www.samfirmware.com, you'll see that the listed G900I is only Australia and Taiwan... G900F is everything from Europe to Asia.
