    You cannot buy one yourself without proof of residence. Obtaining one through a third party (ebay, craigslist posting) is your only option.

    If you're careful Ebay is a decent way to go. I might make another suggestion though...If you are concerned about actually seeing the phone before handing over the money, check Craigslist in the area you will be visiting in the US. You can set up a meeting locally, view the phone and buy it then and there if it meets with your satisfaction.

    I will sell you mine, but it would cost you $800.

    If you're up for that, give me a shout.
