It'll be interesting to see if this site is legit.

Yea I am a bit sceptical-but they have been around, at least their site has since 2004. Acording to WHOIS database.

ick. I'm an tmobile user and I did almost pass out. LOL. But if one can swap out their iPhone if they bought it after May, then ATT doesn't have restrictions for me I guess, since I did buy one after May 27. So I can just put in the original Att card, turn my old iPhone in, and just get the new one. When they try to swap it out, I'll just say that I am going to take it apart or something. Otherwise, I can just pay the full price( which is what, $400? $500?)

yeah even though the phone is cheap, I don't know if people are willing to pay that much for a data plan and a voice plan.
hmm, not really worth it in my opinion, but then again, it doesn't look to appealing (the phone) to me in general.
I think I'll stick with my old gh3tt0 iPhone.

international-orders.com looks a bit fishy:

Sorry, I made a test… the comment should be limited
So as I just tried to explain : DON’T USE THIS WEBSITE !
I ordered a new iPod Touch 32GB, and didn’t get anything except a last email telling that I am dishonest and I shouldn’t try to abuse them! Actually, they asked me to pay an extra $245 after my order (I passed their status: processing, confirmed, ordered and 3 days later: “on hold”… which means nothing to me!).
My order was $299 (+$75 for shipping) and they just offered me the possibility to send the 8GB or to cancel my order for $35 of service fee (replying that I accepted all conditions, so they can update their prices when they want).
Does anyone know a good lawyer to close this website (to lodge a complaint, I can provide all my emails).
To reply to Tim: I hope that this comment stay still, at least until International-Orders.com - International-Shopping - Powered by Go-Global - Stores goes out of business again.
About this Timothy de Vallee
Anyone here know "Timothy de Vallee" aka 'the Baron' ?
or his company "Digital Universe Inc" ?
he's pitching to represent the IMDb for advertising, but some of the
things he says don't ring true.
Anyone had dealings with him?

If it sounds to good to be true, it’s probably because it is...

hmmmm i am actually an International Orders customer, so far they have been great and I actually send a lot of people their way.
I googled the comments you posted above and there is a pretty detailed explanation from the company regarding this guy's comment right on that blog.
From experience and from other people's testimonials I have to side with them on this, you always are gonna get one unhappy someone but looks like there was a valid reason for this guy to have been handled the way he did.
the Tim de Vallee thing though is really old... LOL and on some weird site.... not sure what it's about but again none of this reflects on the service I received, that i can confirm.
I put in my pre-order and am waiting!!!!!!!!! i can't wait to get it!!

You know, the irony of this is in the old days, folks outside the US would pay premium to get an unlocked iphone, now, the folks inside the US will pay premium to get an unlocked iphone.
