    Not yet. Wait until you see factory unlocked phones in the Apple store. Should be any time now.

    You have to ship to a US address from the US Apple store. I have not worked with any trans shippers.

    That's what unlocked means.

    It looks like the launch in India will be this month though, so just buy locally.

    Buying in India is costly compared to the off-contract at&t offer..
    And can you please tell me is there a way to export iphone 5 at&t ?
    Someone could help me buy :)

    You have to pay for import tax from US purchase, I do not believe will make your purchase much cheaper than buying from US, you got to trusst some one to buy for you, too much of a hassle.
    You can bid from ebay may be you are lucky someone can send it to India.
