THE OUTDOOR PHONE STORE SUPPLIED BY INVESTIGATE MAGAZINE
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.
Like most Kiwis, you either like to get away to the great outdoors, or you know someone who does. Treat yourself or a loved one to a rugged smartphone that’s waterproof, shock resistant and dustproof, with features that could save your life in an emergency, like one-touch SOS, long-life batteries, GPS, flashlight and so much more.
These phones all have dual sim cards so they can run two phone networks simultaneously, meaning you’ll have maximum cellular coverage from2G, 3G and even 4G if you get stuck out the back of beyond – more than a Spark, Vodafone or 2Degrees model.
Ideal gifts for the person who seems to have everything, and essential for boaties, trampers, hunters, skiers, mountain bikers, farmers, tradies or anyone else who works and plays outdoors.
You can’t buy these from a telco. Phones carry a 12 month manufacturer’s warranty. Click the photo to see the full collection. Don’t forget to get an all-terrain holster with your purchase.
