    When the IPhone is released..it will most likely be just in the u.s first. now if i were to drive to buffalo, would i be able to buy the iphone from the apple store, or will they refuse the sale because i am canadian?

    Okay, the USA billing address might stop you, but who knows - Is it worth the try???? Try Syracuse, Carousel.

    We won't really know what they'll accept or what they'll turn away. Remember last year you couldn't use cash, you had to have a US ID card, you had to use a credit/debit card, you couldn't use Apple gift cards, and your credit card's billing address/zip code also gives you up. Whatever the situation, please keep us advised here in the states. Thanks. :confused:
