Dear Admin / Friends / Moderators, I m new to this forum.. And I want to know a few facts which I don't know till now. Actually my brother is working in US and he will be returning home in this april for some 20 days leave. So I would like him to buy me a iPhone 3G (8gb) which I explore in the apple's website and I found that it costs $99 only. I don't know much about iPhone and I am keen to use one. I m based in India and I have doubts that if my brother buys me an iPhone from US and I try to use the same here in India using some GSM SIM such Airtel / Vodafone, would it be eleigible to use in India. What are the other hidden cost to be paid? Is iPhone sold without any service provider in US so that the users can put any GSM SIM they want and according to their convenience? Please reply in the earliest possible time. Thanking you.
