    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

    They're very prevalent throughout SE Asia.

    As for the "lead problem". So you mean to tell me that I will have trouble crossing the border into Europe with my Treo 650? I had no problem last time for Chirstmas.

    No, you just can't import them for resale.

    Also over there some places don't use toilet paper but a bucket of water..

    But you'll be fine with your 650.. as said before the rule only applies for importing and producing not for traveling..

    In Saudi there's a tap or a little spray head in the cubicle. Good for the environment I suppose....

    I am only going to see my family and getting the trip paid for by EU VAT spenders as I will be collecting my VAT from things I "brought" to the U.S. last time. Hahahha...I love being an American.

    I'll take that as a compliment. Seriously, though. I grew up in Europe and now I'm a proud American. I know what's going on on both sides of the pond. Apart from Italy, I really dislike Europe for a lot of reasons. I can't wait to have my parents give me all their receipts from what they purchased this year, so I can get them their VAT back HAHA...My U.S. passport is not only a passport but a really nice discount card. The higher the VAT the better.

    Off course you do realise that you are commiting fraud and you could get yourself into trouble this way..

    Last time I tried to claim VAT (or GST as it is called in Australia) I had to show the item I had bought, to prevent situations like yours.. not sure where you are going and how the system works over there, but your plan may not (and should not) work..

    Im my (hard) experience conversations like this end up in a bad place very fast. Best to step away from the thread.

    Whenever I leave the UK and claim VAT I have to show the item as well. Usually pack them in a seperate suitcase so I wouldn't mess things up.

    Seems weird that you can do that, its legally fraud.
