Related to the order that just come to Netherlands.
Can you tell me how much did you payed for the custom? did you actually payed the VAT? (~90 euro) did they called you?
Customs gotta eat too I guess....
Yes, the UPS guy came with a package (Yeah!!!) and a bill for an additional 87 euro (if I'm correct) bummer. Well I guess I kinda anticipated to pay more so I wasn't shocked but still it sucks. I wasn't called in advance but the UPS guy just showed me the bill...
All in all I payed about 480 euro's for the neo advanced package (That includes customs) which is ALOT of money for a phone, but not all that much for such a great opensource hacking device :)

> Thanks for the infos ;).
> Well, assuming the fact that I am waiting for this phone for more than 7-8 months, it's worth the money.
> The only issue is that I didn't receive any email with the shipment details (nr. 22xx - don't remember the exact number now).
> Hope to come this days.
> Again, thanks for the information and happy hacking ;).
Throwing in my 2 euro cents
I guess you are living in the Netherlands? I'm from Belgium and paid this amount for the Neo: 300$ + 52$ (shipping) (== +/- 250 euro) + 50,09 VAT and 12.5 euro for UPS And no, I didn't get a call in advance from UPS either ...
WOW - Custom/VAT update
My box just arrived today (9th of August). The SURPRISE was that I didn't had to pay any CUSTOM/VAT tax :).
I know, I am a lucky bastard.
Anyway, this was strange.
did you get it shipped to your work place? Then maybe you didn't have to pay VAT as it was assumed to be a commercial shipment?
You are right! I've requested to be shipped at Orange office location. Should that be the reason for no VAT charge?
