Hi guys,

I have a bit of a problem my second Oneplus broke and I'm in Australia now.

I contacted Oneplus they want to replace it and they would pick it up but not from Australia. So I either have to get it to Europe for them to pick it up. So they gave me the address to ship it myself.

I went to the DHL depot at Sydney airport they said it would cost me $150 (AUD), I'm not planning on going back to europe again and that price is crazy.

Australia Post doesn't want to ship it because it has a battery in it.

Do you guys know a cheap solution to get it either to Hong Kong or Belgium or the UK?
(I'm currently near Innisfail, Queensland)

My question is has anyone had any troubles using Optus in the Chinese version of the OnePlus One? I'm currently with amaysim on their unlimited plan (5GB, unlimited calls, SMS and MMS, $44) and I'm not looking to change that, I get service on my Nexus 5 that I am currently using and it seems that the bands are compatible but before I go and order I thought I'd ask.

Thanks!

Might be bit of a late reply but here goes...

Amaysim only uses Optus' 3G network. It doesn't have 4G, so it won't be a problem! I'm on the same plan and don't have any coverage issues, but mine's a global version.

Check out Pack & Send. They ship lithium ion batteries, and at around $40-$50 (shipping to Hong Kong's cheaper, Europe is more expensive).

Got mine through Gearbest for $480 Australian Delivered, as soon as I got it flashed the CM11S Rom. Been working perfect for around 3 Months now. Battery is great provided I disable skype as it chews the battery. No Complaints get an easy 2 days out of battery.. So Far Fantastic..

Buy it directly from OnePlus, use Shipito to get it here. You'll pay ~$400 for it.

Nope, I've bought two of these last year and I paid about $400AUD each including the extra shipping charges.

Bought mine last year during a 15 or 20% off ebay sale for about $360. Obviously the aud was way better back then which helped.
