    Default Buying iPhone 3GS in Italy

    Hey Guys,

    I'm going on holiday in Italy and want to bring back some iPhone for me and some friends.

    Is it possible to buy multiple iPhones at the same Vodafone or TIM store?
    Do you need an address or copy of your passport as i'm not Italian.

    Can you pay by cash or creditcard?

    Any hints and tips are welcome. Thanks!

    ehhrm, you know you can buy it in the appple online store aswell? they will send you as many as you want, so i don't think there is any restriction.

    It should be possible, but it depends on the store "rules". If they're low on stock they'll likely want to sell it tied with a contract (especially Vodafone stores) so it'll be one a person.

    See above. It should not be necessary, but it depends on the store. Last year I bought a few 3G's and in some stores I had no problems buying multiple phones, in other (mainly the "official" TIM centres) they had to register the SIM card with the name of the buyer, and it had to be resident in Italy.
    Hopefully this year things are more relaxed. Just look around on different TIM/Vodafone/3 stores and ask. If you're near Rome you can also go directly to the Apple Store, I'm sure you won't have any problems at all there.

    You can buy, if you can find it..apple store is your best choice.
    Tim always out of stock, they do not care if you live in Itali or not , just make sure you have ID with you,or passport if you pay by CC

    Tim is always out of stock? Is it that bad?

    How about the vodafone shops? I won't be in Rome to visit the apple shop unfortunately.
