    Default [Advice] Foreigner Buying an iPhone in US...

    hey this maybe a dum question, but I live in DK... but I have a friend going to new york for easter.

    Can she walk in to an apple store and purchase an Iphone for me?

    the two things im wondering... when u buy the Iphone do you sign up with at&t in the store or do you just get a simcard and then it asks for signup when u connect it to itunes???

    if you can answer i'll be very happy

    thanks

    Yes she can very easy walk into any Apple store and buy an iPhone for you. Go to the Apple web site. There are 3 sotres in Manhattan (NYC) the easiest is at 5th avenue across from central park. It is open 24 hours. They will ask' " Is this phone for resale overseas?" ,,Of course you say "NO!"... That is it. But she will need to buy the phone with a credit or debit card. Cash is not accepted. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SUBSCRIBE TO AT&T rate plans to buy the phone in an Apple store. But if you go to an AT&T store they will require you to buy a rate plan. Duh! ))Then all you need do is bring it back and unlock it.

    The online store only accepts credit cards issued by a US Bank. That happened to a friend of mine so he had to go to an apple store anyway.

    i just went to an AT&T store and said i wanted an iPhone. bought it with a redit card, no questions asked whether i wanted to get a line or not. so, you can buy an iPhone from anywhere! even the AT&T store!

    That is not true. It varies from store to store. Some AT&T stores sells them without questions or signing contracts some other will require to sign a contract before buying. I know as I tried it in Baltimore and they refused to sell it without signing up for a plan. Worked like a charm in an Apple Store though.
