    Default Xperia Z2: Anyone pre-ordering from clove?

    looks like you get headphones and speaker for free with a preorder. UK based but they ship worldwide. Never bought an international phone buy looks like the unlocked z2 fully supports tmobile. Expected arrival for pre-orders is April 7th :-)

    Someone in the comments section on the more recent Z2 article said they ordered it. I mentioned that maybe they should post updates over here in the forums!

    I went ahead and did the pre-order as well, since you do not have to give any financial information at this time. So if it is too rich for me, I'll just cancel when they let me know.

    Right now it's looking like about $800.

    Yeah I originally placed my preorder on 2/24. Once I saw the free speaker offer I emailed Clove and they added it to my order. I have never ordered anything from them before but I am very impressed so far.. Very prompt and clear communication. $809 shipped.

    On another forum, someone said it was up for pre-order on the Sony U.S. website. I saw nothing like that when I looked.

    Here's a question when ordering from the UK site. Aren't there several models of the Z2? I think in the past that was the case and you had to be careful that you ordered the proper model for coverage in the U.S. If they ship a model that's fine for the UK, even if unlocked, it might not have the proper frequency coverage for U.S. LTE use on AT&T and T-Mobile.

    Sony's UK site has had it up for preorder since it's unveiling. The US site won't show until it comes here. The UK model specific Z2 that is up for preorder on Sony's site, Clove and O2 are all the same model and the only model I've seen yet. That model has both of ATT's LTE frequencies.

    I'm not sure exactly what the deal is with currency exchange but Clove they told me they do not charge VAT to the US and there exVAT price is 458.33 Pounds. Shipping was 17 pounds. My US dollar invoice is for $809.99.

    Thanks Jiggy. Channels 4 & 17 are the AT&T LTE channels, I believe.

    Yep, this is what they were quoting me. A couple important things to note, though -

    They did claim that they do not have the precise pricing yet I believe. So it could change.

    Also, as I mentioned above, you do not have to give them any credit card information, so this is a very informal pre-order. I went ahead and did it just so that as soon as it is available, I would have the option.

    I have ordered from Clove. They are based 12 miles from me, so I am gonna see if I can collect mine from them so I don't have to wait for a courier. And as the official release date is the 1st, hopefully I can collect as soon as they have them in stock

    Just be aware that you may have to pay U.S. Duty tax on the order. Last time I ordered a bass guitar from a UK vendor, Fed Ex ended-up billing me $50.00 USD Duty Tax on a $500.00 purchase, IIRC.

    Yeah I went ahead and cancelled my pre-order, cause I'm going to go ahead and buy a phone in the next few weeks (hopefully). I am still very interested in getting the Z2 later.

    Clove have said they might be delaying the purple due to a UK exclusive for the purple z2 with O2 (UK network/carrier). So I am gonna prob get white now.

    I suspect it may be more than a month before we can get an official US release Z2. Also, how a device is priced in the UK does not necessarily translate to how it will be priced in the US. Only applies if you buy the device in the UK, then with the current exchange rate, you are screwed.

    I think you'd probably be dealing directly with Sony... Comes with a 2 year warranty. I had to return one once because it was DOA. They sent me a new one.

    Ya, they said they'd honor the Manufacturer's warranty, but they will not allow me to purchase an extended warranty.
    Square Trade will not allow me either.
    Looking for a reputable company since I will be paying way too much for the phone already

    I purchased from Handtec it ended up being $35 cheaper.
    WARNING:
    Talked to several sony reps on phone and store
    They said labor is not covered in manufacturer warranty. The last rep on the phone told me that he doesn't even know if they'll cover anything even if the phone is within warranty since it is being used outside of Europe and it is a Europe phone.
    His advise was to wait for the us release. He said he would email me. A copy of the next us update he gets.
    I this is is ridiculous. They're just looking for ways for me to choose a different company. US customers are being punished for buying the phone because we have to wait our turn. Really upset about how bad sony is handling this. They should honor warranties since they didn't release their phone in the friggin USA
