    Default [Advice] Questions about buying an iPhone

    Hello everyone.

    Thanks for the website and the good job you guys are doing. I've few clarifications/questions with regards to buying an iPhone and I would really appreciate some answers.

    I'm gonna buy it from US -New York- to work in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and I wanna check if below is correct:

    1.1.1 is the best option to buy (if available)
    1.1.2 and 1.1.3 are not crackable (I'm not interested in Hardware unlocking)
    if 1.1.2 comes with 44 in the 4th 5th digits of the serial number then it can be unlocked.

    StealthSim is the option if the bootloader is 4.6.

    Questions:
    1-Does StealthSim works with all iPhones, including 1.1.3 and with any carrier?
    2-What is the current price in US? is it 399 as shown in apple website but they require an AT&T thingy?
    3-What is the best place to buy it (Price & Quality)?
    4-Is there any place in Newyork where I can buy it unlocked? or it's better to do it myself?
    5-Any Tips, advices before buying?

    Thanks in advance guys and looking forward to hearing from you.

    You won't be able to find any 1.1.1 phones and probably not any 1.1.2. You're almost certain to get a 1.1.3

    1. I'm not sure about that, I think it works but there are many threads in the unlocking section answering this.
    2. 399+tax
    3. Price is the same everywhere and so is the phone. The only places to buy are apple stores and ATT stores, go to an apple store.
    4. Don't know, probably better to buy a whatever-sim from ebay or similar and have it shipped to UAE
    5. Read this forum carefully before and after you buy it.

    Thanks wlp5, very much appreciated.

    Well ... you kinda freaked me out now as I don't wanna buy 1.1.3OTB and use it as an ipod :S

    and as far as I know *sim cards don't work with 1.1.3OTB.

    Am I right?!

    Any other volunteer please

    Question

    hey linuxhat.
    i have the same problem u r having
    my cousin is coming to my country by the end of feb. he says apple r only selling 1.1.3, so im confused seeing that there is no unlock yet, to buy it or not.
    btw how do u use 1.1.3 as an iPod rite now, as there is no jailbreak for OTB 1.1.3 as of now?
    and this might help you: http://cgi.ebay.com/5th-Generation-X...QQcmdZViewItem

    it clearly says that when the OTB 1.1.3 Jailbreak releases (possibly after SDK) X-SIM can be used...

    someone please advice me as well :$

    Hello X3n0 Ac|d,

    Yeah that's true 1.1.3 doesn't have a jailbreak yet ... I'm getting confused as I had to start collecting as much info as I can cause of the flight in just few days.

    But there should be some one selling 1.1.2 in New York but no one answer here. I guess everyone has enough iPhone problems to deal with

    do you know if 1.1.2 with 46 bootloader works with *sim cards???

    hmm..yea *Sims do work wid OTB 1.1.2.
    i just talked to my cousin and he says that local vendors in USA are selling iPhone 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 but they have no warranty and if there are problems they might not help you out.

    Does he know someone in New York who sell them?
    That's weird .. this means that they are unlocked some how therefore is no warranty
