    Hi everyone,

    As you can guess from my name i live in Turkey and tech stuff, especially Apple stuff are expensive here and come in late. So i want to know which exact date the iPhone 4S unlocked will be available in US

    A family friend of mine is going to go to US for a vacation between 7th-12th of November. I will have them ship it to their address, they will bring back when they're coming back.

    I need to make precise calculations about date here or i can lose the chance and pay 1300$ for 16Gb version on December here.

    Also i know that i can't buy stuff from the Apple Online store with a Turkish credit card which is Visa, MasterCard or American Express because they don't have american billing addresses. But i've bought my sister a Macbook Air 2 months ago with a Turkish Visa credit card, i checked out as guest and no questions asked they delivered the macbook to my friend in States, he brought it to Turkey when he's coming back 2 weeks later. how'd that happen? Anybody know?

    I don't know much about credit cards but there's a possibility of that credit card having no billing address. It was a mile card and bank didn't post the abstract to our house, they emailed it. So is it possible that the credit didn't have a billing address so apple shipped it to a US address but a turkish card?

    Thank you very much for your answers
    cheers;

    November, like the website says. Beyond that nobody knows yet.

    Why not tell your friend to stop by an Apple store and purchase it in stores?

    I don't want to make her find an Apple store and wait in possible lines and etc on her vacation. She's on vacation i don't wanna annoy her. It would be easier to just ship it to her brother's house who lives there.

    Also, what if unlocked one isn't launched by then? :eek:

    In store purchase will be your best option. There should be no lines by then, though we won't know when in November until the day they start selling them. Unlikely it will be the first.
