    Default Batty Telephone question.

    Really stupid question almost unworthy of a post, at least it's one more nonsense post to catch up on when Sara gets back into the swing of things hehe.

    Our phone here is absolutely knackered and I'm loathed to get one of those stupid cheap ones that break in a few days so thinking of getting some cordless ones. Don't suppose New Zealand has the same phone socket system do they? If not I'll get one from a jumble sale me thinks.

    New Zealand has pretty much the exact same system, and most BT equipment works a treat here.

    Sadly, you can't use any of it as it's not been approved for use on the NZ Telecom system, so if something were to happen to the local exchange, you would have to pay for it due to plugging in illegal equipment!

    Silly really, all over a little green sticker on the base of the phone! Get to a boot sale, Stevey!

    Aw geez! We just bought our phone earlier this year.

    Thats really silly. They're all imported anyway, it's not like there's a huge telephone making factory tucked away in queenstown is it hehe. Can't I just get a green sticker when I arrive hehe. I hate jumble sales.
