Anyway, when I was reading the back of the box, I noticed that it states in capital letters, "NOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED IN THE UK." I thought it must be an import copy or something, but just below this it has an 08710 tech support number, "charged at 10p/min", and a web address of www.sierra.com/uk.Not that I have any direct experience, but this sounds like an Irish copy that's not meant for consumption or use south of a particular arbitrary border or on the other side of a particular body of water.
These details are all obviously UK-based, so why the distribution warning? Anyone know?
And it couldn't be from the south as they use Euros now.
My mistake, thanks for the correction. If the South is fully a member of the EU, currency and all, then I can't think of why there's that warning except that it might be a simple misprint. Perhaps they meant 'Not for the EU (continent)' if there's no multi-language support? Wouldn't be the first time a case label's had the wrong info on it.
I'm not sure it has anything to do with Ireland, it sounds more likely that it is a pre-sale/review or demo copy that someone has sold.
