    i was looking up prices on line and seen the a 32gb iphone 4 from the apple website is $300 while the same phone from apple/Ireland is e700 (nearly $900). so obviously i was wondering if i can buy one from America and run it here on the o2 network.

    somehow i doubt it would be that easy. :rolleyes: i am assuming if its possible at all i would have to unlock or jailbreak it.

    It would be locked to AT&T and you'd have to sign up for a 2 year contract to get it for $300.

    Correct. Then you could pay the Early Termination fee.

    Still cheaper then buying it from the Apple Store Ireland I suppose.
