hey guys need your advice on something

long story short my iPhone 6 plus was stolen in China :(.

i need a phone asap & the company i am working for is gracefully proposing to replace the phone for me while im still in China. I am planning on going to the apple store today here in Beijing to pick up an unlocked iphone 6+ to use for the next 2 weeks

what's the best course of action if i want a 6s+ ? do any of you know if i am able to get an unlocked 6+ here at the official apple store in beijing & then exchange it for a 6s+ back in california?

on the apple store it vaguely says something about only being able to return from the country of purchase, but it doesnt really explicitly say anything about exchanges and unlocked phones....if i buy it today (the 5th) 14 days from now will be the 19th....so i'd still be in the 14 day window

Hey, I'm in Beijing as well. Just got here from SF. Yeah you can only return it in China. I asked about that today as well at the Apple Store.
