    I live in the US and I will be in Montreal for the next few weeks. It appears all iPhones sold in Canada are unlocked. I am thinking of buying an iphone at the Apple store there to get one that is unlocked and then adding it to an AT&T plan when I get home. Does anyone see any complications with my plan?

    They are factory unlocked and fully functional to work with AT&T so you have not to worry. Keep in mind, because of the CAD, our phones have gone up in price.

    iPhone 6 - $749 CAD
    iPhone 6 Plus - $859 CAD

    Besides leaving us Canadians with less stock? :D

    The phone should be compatible on AT&T's network as far as I know. Just remember about declaring customs and all that.

    I think there is a way to get the GST and PST back for tourists. You might met 100$ back

    I am looking at the 64gb iPhone 6....it is $749 in the US. Am I correct in assuming that model is $849 in Canada? At the current exchange rate that would be about $772US. In the US I would pay 9% sales tax. Are there sales taxes or VAT in Canada that would apply to the purchase price?
