    Default Any foreigner was able to buy iPhone 4 in US?

    I know they're selling the 16Gb for $599 and 32Gb for $699 contract free, but are they selling it to foreigners or are they full of crap again asking for social security and all that bullrit.
    Any one here who went to the US in the 1st day actually bought it?!

    You can not buy an iPhone without a contract in the U.S. This is an agreement AT&T have with apple.

    I bought two iPhone 2g, and one iPhone 3gs by walking in to an apple store, paying full price and walking out, without signing a contract, with a locked iPhone.

    Is this still possible?

    Did Apple change their in store policy with iPhone 4?

    (I remember I was very pressured to buy my 3gs when I did because apple was changing their policies to prevent what I was doing.

    Of course, I never signed a contract-- I just jb and ul and put on Tmobile USA.

    A friend of mine from costa rica managed to buy one in Florida yesterday. He reserved it with Apple and once he got notification that it was in stock was able to buy from the apple store without an AT&T contract.

    Of course this is possible.

    What now ? How is your friend going to use his BRICK because there is no Jailbreak/Unlock available yet ?

    Better way for South Americans: get one in Canada when available. Apple sells unlocked phones over there.

    My friend has already backed up his SHSH for 4.0 (which does not require activation, jailbreak or unlock)

    I assume you are right in that he has a brick until jailbreak/unlock are released. There is a considerable price difference between locked to AT&T - contract free and SIM free iPhone direct from Canadian store. Also.. last I heard Canada's launch date for iPhone 4 was delayed. This leaves UK and France as your only real options for a SIM free unlocked iPhone 4 right now.

    However getting a 4.0 SHSH may be the key to staying jailbroken on the new iPhone.

    A userland jailbreak is quite near. Unlock.. seems possible but will take more time.

    Im in Florida too. Do you know how long it took for Apple to call your friend? I've reserved a few iPhones and iPads this week. Now I just have to wait and see.
