    Hi everyone,

    I have one very odd request to the 6S owners out there. And I would really appreciate it if any of you can help me answer it. Can any of you tell me the exact dimensions & weight of the box that came with the iPhone 6S with the phone, earphone, charger and cable taken out? Would mean a lot.

    Thank you.

    This only means 1 thing. Sounds shady as all get out.

    What is you reason for asking? Out of curiosity. ;)

    So, I'm heading to Guernsey, Channel Islands in a couple of weeks. Planning on getting the iPhone 6S there. If you don't know it, they don't have GST/VAT. So the price of an iPhone 6S is cheaper. The 64GB model cost 510 pounds as opposed to 619 in UK mainland. So about 109 pounds saving. Problem is you might get seized in the airport if you don't declare it upon arrival. So to avoid that, people usually post the box home and just carry the iPhone. People usually do this with watches if you read watches forum. And you'll save a fortune. So this is just my attempt to find out how much would the postage cost.

    Happy duty dodging!
