Just got a call from DHL asking for £44.74 import tax for delivery to the UK (for convergence edition), so heads up to any fellow Brits.

Oh wow, thank you for reporting this. £45 is very steep. Obviously prior to Brexit (using the EU warehouse arrangement) there was no import tax, but  even prior to that -when all PinePhones were shipped from HK - I cannot recall anyone reporting an import tax quite this high in the UK (I think £35 was the most I've ever seen).

I was expecting this much.  Had a read up when I ordered. 

£175 for the phone
So UK VAT at £35
DHL charge £11 minimum to tell you that you have to pay VAT Smile

Before Brexit, I've had to pay VAT and delivery company handling charges when buying outside of the EU, so nothing new there Sad  Apparently, if the total cost of the goods is less than £135 then there's no import tax.  Not sure how they determine the value of what's in the box though?  Something you have to tell them when you ship maybe?

Just received an email stating that my phone has shipped.

I'm in the US,and bought the Convergence phone.

I ordered the phone Jan 29th.

HTH some of you folks that have been stressing about getting your phones, it's like I always say..

Hurry Up and Wait.. It will happen.
