So I have a 3GS Jail broken still running 4.0 and I am looking to replace this phone with the iPhone 5 when it comes out or i should say when ever it comes out. A friend lives in the Philippines and he is planing on picking him self up one to so i was thinking of asking him to pick both my wife and I one when he goes. My question is If for some reason he cant pick one up because there all sold out is it safe to buy one from eBay? When i get the phone can i do factory restore on the phone well in the US and still have a unlock? I only ask this because we do travel to the Philippines and i sure would love to not have to buy them cheap phones with sim card and keep my phone with me well i am there. I really am willing to pay the 1k for the phone and its not the money that i am concerned about as much. Yes im not rich and i really should not spend 1k on a phone but I hate ATT and Verizon wont work for me as CMDA is not in the Philippines. Any advice would be a help. I could drive to Canada in 5 hours my problem with driving up there is finding some one with one well i am there and one i can buy that's not sold out.
