Your Feedback

Ian. I am so impressed with your phone, I have been telling people to get on your website and buy one. - Alan J

Best decision I've made for a long time! Great technical support, help is only a phone call away, I've taken photos underwater, dropped it and it has dealt with all the abuse this hunter, kayak fishing tradie painter can throw at it....and the new Blackview looks even better. Do not hesitate to deal with the genuine agents in NZ , Outdoor Phone Store. - Ant Neill, Facebook

What our customers are saying...

I mostly see queries here that have apparently come from either ‘newish’, or prospective customers – nothing wrong with that! But having owned an AGM that I purchased from Ian at the start of May last year, I just felt compelled to comment on how stoked I am with it. Yes the product is awesome, but I really have found the back-up to be spot on too. While the phone hasn’t missed a beat, I’ve had a couple of minor network issues I didn’t fully understand and Ian personally talked me through them – very patiently and with easy, successful outcomes. Ian very obviously knows what he’s about and looks after his customers. I will have absolutely no worries about buying from him in the future, or recommending him to others. Excellent value for money!

A wee story supporting the claims of these phone. About a month ago now, I was on Mt Taranaki checking Bells Falls. I climbed up to the base of the falls to get a photo to indicate the current flow rate over the falls. After taking the photo on my phone I placed the phone on a rock about 1.5 meters above the river and took my proper camera out of my back.
While I was setting this camera on the tripod, another person came up to talk to me, they knocked the phone off the rock and into the river. The phone was washed down stream along the rocky river bed for about 5 meters before coming to rest in a rock pool. I walked down stream to the pool and recovered the phone, gave it a wipe down and apart from a couple of dings on the protective face cover, no problems it is still working like a dream. Well done Blackview.

About us

It's not something we shout about, but we've been in the mobile phone business for a very long time. Investigate's smartphone division is run by Ian and Heidi Wishart; Heidi's background in telecommunications for Bellsouth Mobile and Clear, and Ian's connection to the establishment of NZ's first mobile phone network (Telecom 025) proved invaluable when the couple began operating a Vodafone affiliate in 1999. Since then we've sold a wide range of phones and tablets to clients all over NZ. Today, we specialise in providing handsets that work on ALL the networks - Spark, Vodafone and 2Degrees, giving you options you can't get from the telcos' own stores. All phones come with a 12 month genuine NZ service warranty (not a 'we'll send it to China and call you in three months' warranty), and our prices include GST for tax deductibility for business use.
