    Default Buy iphone from America ?
    hello people
    well i currently live in Australia and i was thinking if buying the i phone 4g from America when it comes out, just wonder though if it will work in Australia because i don't want to waste my money on buying it and when it arrives it doesn't work at all.

    I think you would need to buy an unlocked phone so it would work with the cell providers in your region.

    If you want to buy an iPhone 4g then you won't get one in America because they don't exhist. Now if you wasn't a iPhone 4 then yes u will need to unlocknit and get service from a gsm provider in your area.

    its an honost mistake to call it 4g
    the only reason why they call it the 4 is because they don't want it to be confused with sprint's 4g network
