    Default [Advice] Is iPhone cheaper in CA or NY?

    next week I will be travelling to the US and in particular to nyc and norcal.
    I wanted to buy a couple iphones to bring back to europe but I was wondering which state had the lowest sales tax.
    I purchased my iphone in ohio last year and it was about $425 and apparently that's one of the "cheaper" states.
    where should I get the iphones now, in CA or NY?
    thanks for your help

    California has a statewide sales tax of 7.25, sometimes local supplementary taxes are allowed up to 8.75%

    New York has a 4% state sales tax. All counties and some cities within NY add local taxes ranging from 3% to 5.5%.

    I would guess California is cheapest, but i don't think you will save shitloads of cash tbh.

    if taxes are less in New York then why would you buy in California?


    iPhone "2G" - 3.1.3 - Jailbroken + iPhoDroid
    iPhone 4 - 4.0.2 - Not jailbroken (yet)

    With Apple stores out of stock like every other day, buy it wherever you see it in stock... Saving a couple bucks is just not worth it...

    Wherever you plan to buy it, you should phone ahead. There are alot of apple stores that are out of stock. AT&T stores has them but you need to sign a 2 year contract.

    indeed you are right.
    I checked out several stores in the bay area (palo alto, san jose and SF) but no luck.
    I still have to go at apple HQ in cupertino and I really hope to find some
