    Currently, people outside the U.S can import iPhones, unlock them, and use them with their prefered carrier. But what about the warranty? I believe the iPhone comes with 1 year international warranty, but if you have imported it to a country where Apple does not yet sell the iPhone, will they honour it if you have trouble with the phone? And a follow up question, will they possibly demand that you show some paper you have a contract with the Apple authorized carrier (AT&T in the U.S)?

    It would suck to import an iPhone, then you get some problems with it, and can get no support. Perhaps anyone here knows something about this? Thanks! :)

    Thats a tough one, they might not want to warranty it or be able to replace or fix it at stores outside of the US or European market.

    I just bought an iPhone yesterday with extended aple care. I tried registering the iPhone Apple Care and it wouldn't let me because Im outside of the U.S.

    You can only register apple care for the iphone to a U.S. Location

    iPhone warranty

    Have you tried calling Apple? I think it might be easier if you were to explain and speak to a human.
