    Default buying 20 iPhones in NY, best method?

    hi

    a friend of mine is going to buy 20 iPhones for me, travel to switzerland, and give them to me (i just have to pay for the flight, which isnt that expensive ^^)
    the question is, how could he buy those?

    how many phones can you buy at apple store in new york (soho and 5th) or could he buy them at an at&t store?
    is there any per-customer-limitation?

    they may limit him to a few unless he comes up with some crazy story like he is buying them all as christmas gifts... if they do limit him, just tell him to go back like twice a day until he gets them all.
    while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))

    oke, what about the story, he'll buy it for his company?
    or he's making a contest, or some kind of PR?

    customs are no problem.

    They will only take a look at your luggage if you look suspicous.....

    custom s no problem, he just tells that he will bring them to italy, and that switzerland is just a stop, so the phones "wont" stay in switzerland, and go to italy, therefor not a matter for the swiss customs.
    worked previously, will work.

    but back to the question, how to get that many?

    You can always unbox them, then ship the boxes separately from the phones. Then say the phone are all defecting or replacements...
