    Hello,

    I am wondering where can I purchase the home I listed in the title.

    I need to buy unlocked and sealed iPhone 5s or 6 for someone in my family when I go to visit my country? (Russia).

    Maybe apple stores still may have some or try Best Buy or Frys.

    I think those would be hard to find sealed.

    Would the iPhone SE work?

    Best Buy would be unlikely. They liquidate their stock relatively fast when new hardware is released. Swappa and EBay is more lucrative.

    true but Frys may have them still since they usually don't sell a lot of smart phones.

    Try Amazon.com. They have resellers who still stock the 5s and 6 iPhones sealed and unlocked. However, I agree with the previous post that an iPhone SE would probably be a better choice.

    A carrier store might be another option. I know T-Mobile was selling 6 still, but the discount wasn't all that great. You could get an SE for the same or less.

    Edit: lol they want $600 for it.

    They're actually much more geared toward the DIY build your own machines crowd. At least they used to be. I've moved to the east coast and haven't been in a frys for over six years.

    It seems predominantly in the West Coast. I had heard of them, but never been to one.

    Don't remember seeing any iPhone at my Fry's. Don't know how they stay open, weekdays they are deserted, more traffic during weekends but most stuff can be bought online and why bother driving over.

    They definitely at least had them as I got one of the iPhone 5 phones I had from them.

    Walmart had the 5s for $149. Not sure if it was locked. One of those pre-paid/monthly pay types.
