    From experience fedex charges the most for customs. Dont know how or why but between the other major carriers, they also release items through customs the fastest and least "maarte" compared to others especially dhl. We have accounts for both and in our business we use both for inbound for samples etc.

    Dont know if from sing it will be cheaper customs (bec SG is ASEAN while hk isnt)

    the problem is the customs.. they can hold your items up to 7 days while computing for the tax.

    then dhl/fedex will charge you that number of days as storage fee + vat and other expenses

    ant88c was charged 9k tax for his HTC desire.. customs held it more than 4 days
    that's just insanely too much for tax fees... i might just ask my friend from SG to order one for me then i'll go to SG to pick it up. you can get round trip tickets to SG for less then 100USD at tiger air.

    I never realized shipping and customs charges would be that high and troublesome.

    actually they are lax, by the law, you need ntc permit to import any wireless device
    when everybody calls nokia... i answered iPhone; when people peek at windows... i stared at MAC; when humans aim w/ canon... i shoot with Łeica; when they swim with padi... i dive with Naui; when all men wear Hanes... i wear none

    Actually i'm trying one right now, if the cost is justifiable.
