    Default New iPhone only with ID?

    I'm from Switzerland. My teacher just took an iphone from the states to switzerland. but at the shop they asked her for ID and they said the bill will come by e-mail, what did not happen until today. what do they want with the ID information?

    thanks for answers

    apple wants to register there devices to see where they end up lol. they don't really want exportation of the u.s. devices i guess because when i bought mine thats what he told me. they even stopped accepting cash as payments for iphones.

    I'm certain they also do it as a means of preventing credit card fraud

    They asked my ID card -- Passport -- when I showed them my International Credit Card. This was mostly to avoid one to use a stolen credit card.

    Then my eMail address to either a) register with Apple or b) just sent recipe by mail. GMail was accepted
