Country specific phones legal in the EU?
I'm from Germany.
I read in other threads that I would be able to buy an iPhone in France, but would not be able to use it without a French iTunes account. On Apple's UK online store page, I am not able to buy the iPhone since my billing and delivery address are not within the UK.
I was just wondering:
As I understand it, EU-laws (specifically the open market rules) should prevent Apple and the carriers to sell a specific iPhone offer only in one country of the EU.
What I mean is, I should not be banned from buying (or using) an iPhone from any EU-country, in any EU-country.
So, I should be able to buy the unlocked iPhone from France and use it in Germany and should be able to buy a UK iPhone, even if I am not a UK citizen.
Anyone, who knows any more on this?
