    Question [Advice] Getting iPhone 3G from US.

    Hi All,

    One of my friends is going to the US and said that he could get an iPhone 3G from there without the subscription. He charges 250$ for the 8 Gig and 350$ for 16 Gig.
    He said that it would be brand-new in the box.

    Should I buy it? Would there be problems in using the AppStore or with iTunes ?

    Of course for those prices you should get it. However if there are ways of getting it without subscription in america, im sure there will be ways in other countrys, so you may as well just buy it yourself. I can't see there being any problems with appstore or itunes, and even if there is there is likely to be a hack/workaround created to fix this.

    $250 for a contract-free phone is great, but how are you going to unlock it? That's what you should be concerned about instead...

    Well, yes he is a good friend. And actually I dont know How can he get it without the subscription, but he said that he will. And he is getting it for some other friends of ours also. He said that I will pay him the full amount after he gives me the phone...

    But the main thing bothering me is... Does Apple have a record of Serial No.s of phones and to whom they are sold...? Because I like to have things on my name...

    No apple dont have any records and i can't see them taking records ever. Plus people buy second hand phones all the time so that would never work. So if it is a genuine offer then you should take it.

    It doesn't make sense. If something is usually too good to be true, than it almost always is.

    I'd want to know how he will get them.
