Okay, so im buying an iphone 4 16gb(AT&T) from the USA for 149$. My question is, do i have to buy the contract along with the phone? I mean like fill in a form and pay the initial charges and all that before i can take it home? Because im gonna buy Gevey Ultra/Ultrasn0w depending on the baseband and ship it to India. Some one who has bought a phone there please reply.Thanks.

for $ 149 its sure locked phone , UNUSABLE IN INDIA< its not just form filling , its contract between you and ATT, for taking a connection along with phone, Unless you have a SSN you cant buy it, Just dont Dream that. the unlocked version is like around $ 450 or more ( I am not sure) Research first dont just buy cause you have money.... YOU CANT BUY for $149 a iphone bottom line ...

they have to pay the monthly bill for it, for 2 years, In USA and I am sure shipping it out of country will be illegal for them...this just dosent work like the way it works in India...

if you get a phone on contract to india, your relatives would have to pay an early termination fee. which i think is around 300-450 dollars.
