Australian carrier Telstra hosting "The Lumia Quest" with Lumia 800 giveaway

The Australian carrier Telstra has announced a new Windows Phone competition featuring the Lumia 800. "The Lumia Quest" will see 10 glossy new white Lumia 800 handsets being given away in 5 cities across the country this coming May. The members of public will be able to follow social media clues posted on the official Facebook page to find the hidden Lumia stash.

The competition is finders keepers and is taking place in Brisbane (May 7th), Melbourne (May 8th), Perth (May 9th), Adelaide (May 10th) and Sydney (May 11th). What do you receive should you manage to successfully find the handsets on the treasure hunt? Well the white Lumia 800 of course, but along with the Windows Phone, the ten devices come with a Telstra $50 Pre-Paid Cap Encore recharge, with $1000.00 credit and 2GB of data. Not bad, eh?

So who's heading down to the events? Keep an eye out on the official Telstra Facebook page for more information as well as the clues on the competition days.

Update: We've just corrected the article that it's indeed the Lumia 800, not the Lumia 900.

  • Some proof reading please. Aiustralian?
  • WPDownunder is not very acurate or reliable... Its lumia 800's as the 900 has no release date in Australia with any carrier yet.
  • LOL - thanks nndlb123. In actual fact, my article mentions it's the Lumia 800. Cheers for the vote of confidence ;-)
  • Mistakes happen man, chill haha.
  • Thanks Rich! <3 your work and that of the rest of the WPCentral team (feel like an Aussie cousin!) :D
  • Seems the correction is done. Thanks!
  • Damn, they never come to Canberra!!
  • I want my 800 to have LTE and front-facing camera. The lumia 800 size hit the sweet spot
  • A treasure hunt through the city would be fun. Might see if I can make it along to the Sydney event and try my luck. Thanks for the post.
