    Question Best way to buy iPhone from overseas?

    Hi guys,

    Just wondering what everyone's opinions (and experiences maybe) are on the best way to buy an iPhone (a brand new one sealed in box) from overseas? I'm in New Zealand so I can't exactly walk down to an Apple store and pick one up

    Is ebay the best option? I don't really want to pay much more than retail price if I can avoid it (considering they're not exactly sold out!) but obviously if that's the only option I guess I'd have to.

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    If you have any colleagues on their way to your office, you can get them to get for you from the Apple shop. Saves on uncessary hikes and shipping too.

    My US colleague got one for me when he is on his way to Singapore.

    As they say...if it looks to good it usually is

    I would recommend International-Orders.com,

    I was very satisfied with their service.

    I have one for sale, Hardware unlocked, in Christchurch for sale $1250 NZ for an 8 gig, but you said you didn't want to pay much more than retail so this is prob not the option for you. But it is fully unlocked working on Vodafone.
