You can literally use this phone in every country in the world.

CHARGING OPTIONS – what you need to know: All our phones come with an NZ/AU Adaptive Fast Charger compliant with MTK chipset protocols. Ultra-fast charging is optionally available by using the manufacturer’s European charger (also supplied with phone) with the Antares travel adapter sold at Countdown and PaperPlus for $14.99. The Antares is rated to 10 amps (most ultra-fast chargers are between 3 and 5 amps) and complies with NZ safety standard SAA130534EA. Beware of sites offering “optional” $29.95 “fast chargers” as they may not deliver a fast charge unless the phone uses a Qualcomm (QC) chipset. Most rugged phones use MTK chips and a QC 3.0 wall charger won’t work properly. The optional high-power car chargers sold by the Outdoor Phone Store charge both QC and MTK phones.

*FIRST200 Warranty: In addition to the standard warranty, this phone has optional First200 cover – exclusive to the Outdoor Phone Store. In the event of non-warranty damage in the first 12 months of use, the first $200 of repairs by us is on us. The unused balance can be transferred forward to any subsequent repairs within the warranty period. Why is this important? The 9600 models use a premium Samsung Super AMOLED screen that is expensive to fix. No other retailer offers accidental damage cover, and while your contents insurance should cover damage, usually the excess on phones is high.

REPAIRS: What you need to know


If there is, the countdown timer will be active and let you know any order deadline before the special expires:

HOW TO USE THIS SITE: There are usually four options you can choose from a drop-down menu near the Add to Cart icon. The top price carries our standard warranties plus the accidental damage cover (no other retailer offers this). Next down is our pricing on the same terms as our competitors. Then there’s a trade only option for businesses who don’t need warranties, and finally our ‘International’ price for buyers outside NZ. Simply choose your preference, add to cart and you’ll get your phone usually within 1-7 working days wherever you are in the world.

*Product Notes, Blackview BV9600

  • Phones are optimised and tuned to run best on the Android system originally installed on them. Manufacturers like Samsung, Blackview, AGM, Google, Apple and others have run into difficulties in the past when rolling out new Android (or Apple) versions to existing customers, and for that reason The Outdoor Phone Store does not recommend upgrading your OS. If you choose to do so it is entirely at your own risk and we suggest you consult manufacturer support forums to see what glitches have been caused by the upgrades before making a decision yourself. Our standard warning applies: The Android OS version on this device cannot be upgraded or flashed and any attempts to modify the default OS will void the warranty. As a retailer, we provide no software support, advice, or training regarding the Android operating system and software.

Additional information
