    Exclamation International iPhone Shipping

    Hey everyone,

    I want to ship 5 iphones from the United States to India this week through FedEx. However i want them shipped direct from the Apple Store Online where i purchase it overseas without actually having to handle the iphones themselves. I wanted to know if there is anyway to do so, through FedEx, like a drop-off location and they can ship it overseas or is it not possible. Please someone help me out because my friend really wants these iphones and to unlock them for personal usage. If anyone can help me and let me know if i can have it redirected overseas that would be great. thanks everyone in advance and sorry if this is off-topic

    Thanks. Is there anyway to have it kept at a FedEx location and have DHL ship it for me?

    why not use an american address and then ask fed-ex or dhl to pick it up from that address.

    though, you will need someone to re-pack and fill out the awb form.
    you must have friends or relatives living in the states,

    Well i live in the states, but i do not have time to do things like wait for an order, fill out forms again and then re-ship it. It has to be immediate and constant movement for the iphones because i hate delays. I have work, school and more work that i have to deal with so its really hard to process things like this myself. Thanks anyway

    the answer is no apple will only ship to usa , you will need some middleman process to get them from usa to india, and it will cost unless you know somebody

    I understand that part. I would like to find someone to do so, a well known forum member possibly?

    If money isn't too important, call Fedex or DHL and ask them to pick up the stuff at your house, they'll also take care of the necessary paper forms, you just need to provide a couple of details and a signature. This costs a little bit more but if you don't have time on your hands, this is the best method to go with. Also be aware that the iPhones will be officially cleared for customs, so if there is a customs fee in India for imported phones, you or the recepient need to pay that too, usually directly with Fedex/DHL, depending on how they handle customs stuff in India.

    Meaning:
    1. order 5 iPhones from the US Apple Store (you need to be living in the US with a valid address and US credit card) and have them shipped to your address
    2. when the iPhones arrive, call Fedex or DHL and ask them to pick them up, giving them more details about the destination

    The Fedex/DHL overnight international service won't be cheap though but they make sure that the iPhones reach their destination.

    Forget about finding a third party to do this for you, nobody will order the iPhones for you if they have to pay for them first and nobody will ship them to India for free or a little fee, you may end up without the iPhones if you're unlucky.

    Still i would rather not have them sitting at my house while im at school and work all day. Things do go missing sometimes whether theyre stolen or not. I would just like for a quick solution to increase sales of unlocked iphones for myself and the community as having the option to ship internationally would be great for me and those who want to unlock the iphones or have unlocked iphone which they cannot get in their posession. Thanks anyways guys
