    My advice..

    Don't buy from the US - it only seems cheap. It isn't

    Buy a factory unlocked phone from Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong (or many European countries). or if your own country has a carrier that sells iPhones and offers an official unlock, use that (if the total cost is less than US$1100).

    Your brother will end up with a bill much larger than $299 if he tries to do what you suggest (closer to $599). There is NO way for him to get the phone from AT&T without signing a contract (which he would then need to break and pay the extra fees for breaking it)

    Also.. you risk getting a phone that can't currently be jailbroken or unlocked (3GS 3.1.3 with 3.1.3 baseband).
