    Hi, gents. I will be in USA from September 5 to 1 October on work. I will be in different states, but from September 19 i will be in Boston.
    My Boss have big business in Europe, Asia, and some contracts in US.
    After I will finish all working moments he sad to buy Iphone 5S as many as I can, but not more then 100, only 5S, only full price/unlocked/sim free.
    Actually its award for employees, who best of all closed quarter (quarter in our company is 4 month).

    How best to do ? I did it once for 60 pieces of Iphone 5 (full price), but it was in January 2013, no problem to buy Iphone 5 as many as you want.

    So i will have only about 10 days for to buy Iphone 5S as many as I can, i want to hear from you Buying Tips and Advice. Tnx a lot in advance.

    PS In my country much more expensive to buy, because we have euro, euro is 1.35 of USD.
    PS My country not in first or second wave of Iphone 5S starts selling.
    PS Any way i will be in US with work.

    All what we want - spent money in US and pay all taxes !)
    PS we know about customs, its ok, i will be not alone, am not going cary all of them just by myself.

    I think you will be out of luck.

    The new unlocked iPhone models don't usually go on sale in the US until a couple of months after the initial launch.

    In the past, Apple hasn't sold unlocked iPhones on launch days. Those are usually made available weeks later.

    If you buy a 100 new iPhones and put them in your suitcase, customs enforcements will stop you and you'll have to pay taxes for your country...

    a bunch of places I went to won't sell to non US customers. people who get 1st dibs are new 2 year costumers and people resigning a 2 year deal. At least at Best Buy and Radio shack in Boston they weren't giving it to foriegners because they didn't want people who were going to resell them. I go to BC and have a lot of exchange student friend who were super pissed off about it. Even then they made me and my friends jump hoops to get one and were basically like don't resell the phone. WE EVEN Preordered them and they made it sound like we were criminals.

    My point is it won't be super easy to get 1 the 1st week unless you wait in line but if your in boston you might want to ask if they'd even sell you one. They defiantly won't sell you more than 1 anywhere unless you sign a contract with them with more than 1 line.

    Even if you intend to use the phones as gifts, it still smells like buying them off with the purpose of reselling, and Apple (and many other companies) usually have policies to try and avoid that. In Canada Apple usually imposes a 2 phones per person limit on sales near launch day, so you often see entire families camped out waiting to get the phones for resale in countries where it has not been launched yet. I'm afraid you'll have to do a lot of legwork to pull off something like that close to launch date, no easy way out.

    You are the reason it's impossible to get new iPhones for the first few days of release.

    How about you kindly don't do this, and wait until they are available in your country? I can forgive someone flying it the US to buy one for themselves or family, but what you describe is the reason behind the shortages.

    Just. Don't.
