    Default iPhone 3GS from Australia

    Hey,

    My Uncle is in Australia for a vacation, and when he comes back, I have asked him to buy me an iPhone 3GS 32GB.

    Now the thing, the apple site says that its unlocked.

    But this support page, says that the phones are locked and can be unlocked on request.

    My uncle will most probably pick it up from the Sydney Apple Retail Store, now the phones available there, are they locked to either Vodafone/Telstra/Optus, or are they Unlocked?

    Would appreciate some help.

    Also, can I use my Credit card (from India, its an "International" Credit Card), and order from the Online Apple Store in Australia, and get it shipped to my cousins place in Australia?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Ad1tya.

    I've heard mixed responses regarding iPhones in Australia. Sure enough, the operators have the ability to unlock iPhones, and apparently some of them do it upon request for free, but I don't think any of them sell it unlocked. Some people are saying that the handsets sold in the Apple store are unlocked though. But I haven't been able to confirm this.

    Hey..

    Well, I got word from my Uncle that the handsets being sold @ the Apple Store, are Locked as well.
    They will be selling unlocked phones off the shelf in a month or so. But not now.

    So he didnt pick one up. .. Damnit.

    On a side note, the iPhone 3GS is supposed to launch in Singapore on the 9th of July correct? Do they sell them there for full price? Or do you need to sign a contract?
    AFAIK, their unlocked.
