    Default Are foreigners allowed to purchase iPhones in the USA?

    Hi!

    I read that foreigners are not allowed to buy even one iPhone within the USA when they want to use their non-American creditcard. Is that correct?

    Thank you,

    pretty much, Apple has gotten rather strict with the sale of the phones. I dont know if it is standard practice but i got ID when i purchased mine (but this was back in july before they cared) they told me i couldnt do anything with it in Canada but they still sold it.

    I imagine it would be alot easier to buy in the non boarder states since they are less likely to be looking out for that kinda thing.

    I bought mines by September 27th and October 4th in a FL Apple Store. I bought 2 phones each time.. they just let me know the unlock policy, i said i wouldnt unlocked them & use them with AT&T.

    So i showed them my Venezuelan ID Card and paid with a Non-American Credit Card.. everything was fine ! considering that i even look like a 15 year old girl.

    Well the asian guy at the apple store counter ..told me the unlock policy,but he was laughing because he knew i was going to unlock them.

    *Showed Venezuelan ID and Creditcard*

    He was like .. are you going to use them with AT&T? (laughing)

    *4 seconds later*

    I replied: Yeah .. sure.. i am going to use them with AT&T (laughing)
    He asked for email,informed me about the return policy,then he placed the 2 iPhones in the bag, and said : Here you go.

    Same here,

    I have buy some from apple store online with my Costa Rican Credit Card, and in two stores in Florida, all without a problem, but i recently try to buy another 3 online and i got a message that only an US card will be allowed to buy from them, so i delete the order and made a new one with the same card but only 1 phone and it went through.
