I'm in the UK and I'm looking to buy an iPhone. With the price drop to $399 I'm now interested in a new one. The only problem is not being able to get it in the UK as Apple won't ship outside the US. When one purchases an iPhone, does one sign up to a contract there and then, or does that come when the phone is activated? I could activate the iPhone using the DVDJon method, and then wait until an unlock hack is around for me to use my O2 SIM. Even eBay is more expensive than Apple. Are there any kind, reputable MR folk in the US that would be happy to buy an iPhone and ship it to me? Obviously I'd send you the money in advance.
