    Hi all,

    Some help please if you could. Living in Ireland and I am heading over to the US in 3 weeks time. Is there anywhere, preferably in the Las Vegas area that I can purchase a non contract iPhone??? I am only over on vacation so getting tied into contracts is a no no, but really want to get my hands on one.

    Any help you could give would be most appreciated

    Rgds, Paul

    smokey, thanks for replying to my post. Do I not have to sign up to a contract with At&t when buying in the apple store?? I was under the assumption I did and they would not sell me one if I did not provide a U.S. address and card etc.
    If I can just buy one over the counter then thats great, I can, as you say, get it unlocked back over here then.
    Can you or anyone else confirm this???
    Many thanks,
    Paul

    Yes, you can buy an iPhone at Apple store without a U.S. card/address and unlock it by yourself.
