    SO what would the "duty" be on a 650$ phone?
    i paid 58$ on my 550$ ipad

    i say 68-70 ?

    anyways i have 8 people from here who want one and im gonna grab them all one assuming no one fucks me over ... launch should be in 2 weeks from my talking with the apple staff here

    Please try to avoid saying what you mean! So nobody screws me over, or does me over would be mre appropriot! Yes, my spling sux, but now let's get back to the subject. How are you gonna smuggle 15 over the border in one shot? Or are you gonna be doing daily or weekly trips for a while? If you purchase for a company, you had better have your tax exemption card and number ready. Just a thought

    I wonder if the $650 is Canadian dollars or US dollars. If that was Canadian dollars, that's only $617 USD.

    Why would they list the price in Canada in USA dollars? C'mon man.


    There will be taxes on that also. 12% in BC. Someone in Alberta will have a decent little business they could start by shipping phones from there to the USA. Only 5% tax there.

    Your cost will be Cost of iPhone + shipping + paypal fee + 50$ for myself to drive out to Toronto(100km away from my house) and send out the same day to you at whatever shipping you want as long as there is a signature

    My rep is pretty good around here and have 100 ebay if you need to double check.

    Also i run the JailbreakMatrix.com which is crawling all over this site as a reference.

    Yup. 2. And goodluck gettin one now cuz their sold out everywhere! They tell u its first come first serve cuz when they get shipments its anywhere from 3-10 per store and they dont know when its comin. Trust me, i'm still hunting and waitin

    Sorry i shouldve quoted on the last reply ;p for those of u claiming at the border keep in mind that ontario has this new ugly tax called the HST. A nice and sweet 13%. so be prepared for empty pockets!

    In Canada at least this is a very deceptive claim. If not deceptive it can at least fall into the category of trickery because here in Canada we have always been able to go out and buy a handset unit made by any manufacturing company ie.Motorola, Sony, Nokia and so on. Theres nothing to stop a person from doing this to this day and the carriers aren't going refuse you because they know the same thing that Apple knows and that is, here in Canada at least, once your phone is hooked up with their carrier service they will not release their lock from it ever, they LOCK YOUR PHONE to their service with no intention or laws requiring them to release it even if you no longer wish to subscribe to their service.

    I could go into a long diatribe about how morally, legally, criminally, or even Constitutionally wrong this policy can be construed as but that most likely belongs in a different forum and I would have to be in a different frame of mind so basically I'll sum it up as IN CANADA AN UNLOCKED PHONE IS ONLY UNLOCKED UNTIL IT IS SUBSCRIBED TO A CARRIER. As soon as service begins with that carrier your phone then becomes locked to that carrier.

    That being said, Apple, knowing that this is the policy of Canadian carriers make as well be a Wild West Snake Oil salesman pitching snake oil in the form of unlocked Iphones...

    Well, there I go... I'll stop now.

    ^ I think you might be a bit confused. What you say is not true. An unlocked iPhone can not be locked to a specific carrier.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    I thought that was the point of unlocking. I need to put two chips in my iphone when i work. A Telekom chip for the normal day, and at work, i need vodafone, because there is NO telekom reception in my building.
    I am confused as to how a carrier could "lock"your phone if it is "factory unlocked" i.e. nokia.
