Honestly though, Customs do not have the time nor the manpower to check every single parcel coming in to Australia, hence drugs and the like get through.
Why waste resources on a computer game that is clearly imported by ADULTS and not Children? Essentially children are being protected due to the fact that they cannot import the game and that adults only can import it.
Really how are they going to tell whether the computer game in the mail is Mortal Kombat or Super Mario Bros without having to open every single parcel that is marked as a computer game?
This decision really defies belief and I am sceptical that Australian Customs even have the resources to be able to enforce this decision.
I have an iPad and will be selling it to put towards in iPad2.
You know I wasn't even going to buy this game in the first place, but I think I might just import it from overseas just to prove a point!
I'm so sick and tired of this issue lately. I remember playing this game as a kid, Kano ripping people's heads off, blood gore and the like. Here we are some 20+ years later and the same content gets banned... go figure.

You don't need to worry just yet.
Firstly, 4G is going to use a different spectrum to the current 3G. Your 3G handset will work fine until you are out of contract and by then you will have more 4G phones to choose from.
4G is only going to be rolled out in the capital cities first and then out from the cities. 4G won't make much difference to your mobile phone calls, it will only enhance your data connection.
There is a lot of hype around 4G at the moment, but there are basically no providers that have 4G phones for the Australian market at this stage.
The important thing to remember is that Telstra aren't turning off their 3G network, so you will be able to continue to use your current phone for quite some time to come.
