Hi, May I ask... If I buy iphone from apple store, will I have to pay another taxes if I'm not in US? I'm from Indonesia.... THX

If you do not have a US billing and shipping address, you can NOT purchase an iPhone from the US Apple web site, if that's what you're asking.
If you are physically in the US, you need to know that #1. Unlocked iPhone 4S will not be available for purchase until some time in November. #2. The warranty is NOT international. If it breaks, you will not be able to get it serviced anywhere but in the US.
As for taxes, you will have to pay sales tax in the US. As far as any duties on the phone are concerned when you take it home, you'll have to inquire of your government for the answer to that.

  • Buying a MacBook Pro in Seattle on a University visit. How much tax will I have to pay? I am attending the University of Washington in January so I assume I will be able to get student discount, but will I have to pay state tax - as I am not from the US?

  • If I buy Iphone from Apple Store, can I transfer to Virgin Mobile?

    If I buy any Iphone from Apple Store, can I transfer it to Virgin Mobile? Because Virgin Mobile for Iphone is expensive than regular price. So I favor to buy it from Apple Store. Can anything I get it to Virgin Mobile??

    Hi Court,
    When you buy a phone from the Apple Store, they are going to automatically attach it to a carrier.  I'm not sure if you're with one right now but either way this is the case.  The price you're paying for the phone is relative and I'll give you detail as to what that means.
    Virgin Mobile: No contracts and month to month
    iPhone Cost (32GB: $649)
    Verizon: 2yr Contract
    iPhone Cost (32GB: $299)
    Monthly Bill: $100 (All in)
    Now understand the math here.  Over 2 years with Verizon, you'll be paying ($100 * 24months) + $299 = $2,700.  So you're locked in for 2 years.  You'll have to pay a termination fee if you want to leave early which I'm sure will equal so some of the amount balance of the phone for what Verizon bought it at.  You're paying less upfront but more over the long term.
    With Virgin you might end up paying $649 up front but since there are no contracts, you can leave anytime.

  • Buy iPhone from Apple Store

    iPhone3G is now available direct from Apple Store in HongKong. Will Apple ship to anywhere outside Hong Kong, even if the buyer pays for the shipping charges? Has anyone ordered an iPhone from Apple Store Hong Kong?

    I think this is doubtful.
    I don't believe Apple ships iPhones outside of any country where it is sold, regardless if sold as unlocked in a particular country. AFAIK, the iPhone sold in each country must be purchased at an Apple Store if there is one available, or via Apple's designed provider or approved sales outlet in each country.

  • Buying iphone from Apple store for use with various carriers

    If I buy an iphone 4 from Apple store (not subsidized), can I use it with Virgin Mobile's no contract plan?  Or do I need to buy it from Virgin Mobile?
    And If, after a month or two, I decide not to use Virgin Mobile, can I switch to another carrier using the same phone? or do I need to unlock it or whatever?
    I guess what I am really getting down to is this:  I want to choose Virgin as carrier because there is no 2-year contract locked in, i.e. flexibility to switch, and I am willing to pay full price for the phone.  But if, for some reason I don't like Virgin's service, or they to raise their monthly fee so that it is no longer competitive to ATT, VZ, etc., I want to be able to switch to another carrier with the same phone, and not have to sell it on the 2nd hand market.
    I know I can just purchase the iphone 4 that Virgin offers for 350.  But if it only works with Virgin and no other carrier, then what is the point of not having tied into a contract?  The phone is useless unless I use it with that carrier.
    I have not asked Virgin this question yet, because what I really want to know is, if an iphone purchased in an Apple store can be used "universally" across all carriers.  I kind of understand there is a different standard that ATT use as opposed to all other carriers, but I am hoping to find the definitive answer about iphone compatibility for all carriers that offer the iphone.

    3)  I assume VZ and S use CDMA.  So, an unlocked VZ CDMA iphone user can switch to S and vice versa, and that's it?
    You assume correctly that Verizon and Sprint are CDMA.  However, no CDMA carrier will activate a device sold for a network other than their own.  In the "CDMA world" there is no such thing as an unlocked device.
    Spiral Aim wrote:
    4)  ATT unlocked iphone users cannot use same phone with VZ, S, Virgin, or whoever else offering iphones at this time?
    An unlocked GSM iPhone can be used on TMobile and any other GSM carrier in the US, there are quite a few regional GSM carriers and resellers (like StraightTalk).  Not all features are supported/work and it's up to those carriers to get them working.

    Now this is where it gets confusing, kindof.
    The iPhone 4 is GSM or CDMA only.
    The 4S and 5 are World phones meaning they have GSM and CDMA antenna's.  A CDMA 4S or 5 can be unlocked by the carrier (Sprint, Verizon, Virgin, etc) and activated on a GSM network.  Generally the carrier will only unlock for International carriers for the purpose of using GSM when the user is traveling and there is no partner CDMA carrier network for the user to roam on.

  • If I buy a digital book in  EPUB size from a web site, how I may read it on my IPad? Specify that I didn't buy it from Apple Store.

    If I buy a digital book in  EPUB size from a web site, how I may read it on my IPad? Specify that I didn't buy it from Apple Store.

    First, epub has nothing to do with size, it is a file format that is popularly used for ebooks, but ebooks published in epub file formats vary greatly in file size.
    It will depend on where you buy it.  Many books are DRM locked (Digital Rights Management, a software lock).  If so, in order to load it into another companies reader or reader software, you need to use something like Adobe Digital Editions to "authorize" the book on the device.  Apple's iBook software does not work with ADE.
    If the book was DRM free, you should be able to read it in any ereader or ereader program that supports epub format.
    If the book is DRM locked to B&N, Amazon, Kobo or whichever seller you shopped from, then the simples thing is to download their free app for the iPad (they all make one, in fact they all make free apps for iPad, Android, Mac OS X and Windows).
    So the short answer is yes, you should be able to read any epub ebook file on an iPad, although not necessarily in iBook.
    So, books from
    Amazon - get the Kindle reader app
    B&N - get the Nook reader app
    Kobo - get the Kobo reader app
    non-DRM epubs can be read in iBook, Nook, Kobo, or Google Play

  • If i buy iphone from apple shop so can i use it world wild ?

    If i buy iphone from apple shop so can i use it world wild ?

    As long as it is sim free with no subsiby to a carrier, then yes you can slot any sim in and use it anywhere.  And yes the Apple stores in the UK sell factory unlocked phones as long as they are not connected to a carrier as Apple sell those as well.

  • I got an iphone from apple store US and am located in egypt , the device has hardware issues and need swap as stated by apple stor belfast when i was in ireland but they cannot swap it in EU as it is purchased from US , please advice

    I got an iphone from apple store US and am located in egypt , the device has hardware issues and need swap as stated by apple stor belfast when i was in ireland but they cannot swap it in EU as it is purchased from US , please advice how i can get this swapped without any extra cost on me , this is really frustrating

    The warranty is valid in the original country of purchase:
    http://www.apple.com/legal/warranty/products/iphone-english.html
    Note:
    IMPORTANT RESTRICTION
    Apple may restrict warranty service to the country where Apple or its Authorized Distributors originally sold the Apple Product.
    You will either need to find a local repair shop and pay for it. Or you will need to ship the phone to someone you know in the US and have them take it to Apple for evaluation and then have it shipped back to you. All this will be at your expense. Also note that Apple do not accept direct shipments.

  • Anyone can help me fixed my iphone as I am living in Thailand and bought Iphone from apple store website but there is not any way i can contact apple staff through website! and direct phone!

    I just bought new iphone from apple store from few weeks only but now i cant even make a phoen call and everytime i try to open "phone" function, it just error and stop on that page without any response.
    So i tried to close that app and re open it but it doesnot woek i couldnt do anything means i have phone but cant use it as phone.
    And i couldnt even contact apple staff through internet and phone call.
    I need to talk with apple as i didnt bought it from dealer in Thailand so i cant take it to dealer service center, apple, please support me in this case urgently.
    Thank you.

    Basics from the User Guide are restart, reset, restore from backup, and finally restore as New.  I suggest you try ALL of these steps if your phone continues to have problems.
    If after ALL 4 steps your phone still doesn't work, you've no choice but to have your phone serviced by Apple.  As you've found out, the iPhone warranty is NOT and has NEVER been international.  You'll have to send your phone to someone in the country of purchase to bring your phone into Apple--and then to have that person send the phone back to you.

  • I bought yesterday online an Iphone from apple store Canada and there said that was Unlocked but on my email came a message " IPHONE 4S BLACK 16GB GSM- CAN". Does It means that this item is Unlocked?

    I bought yesterday online an Iphone from apple store Canada (http://store.apple.com/ca/browse/home/shop_iphone/family/iphone/iphone4s) and there said that was Unlocked but on my email came a message " IPHONE 4S BLACK 16GB GSM- CAN". Does It means that this item is Unlocked?
    Was shipped today, October 8, but I don't know if this "GSM-CAN" means taht is locked or unlocked!
    I BOUGHT AN UNLOCKED! 

    "GSM-CAN" means that it was a GSM iPhone sold in Canada. It doesn't indicate anything regarding lock status. If you purchased the iPhone from the online Apple Store, then to the best of my knowledge, they don't sell anything other than unlocked iPhones.
    Regards.

  • I swapped my iphone from apple store india and my imei of iphone changed and i have lost the box and bill of phone , how can i get my old imei number.

    I swapped my iphone from apple store india and my imei of iphone changed and i have lost the box and bill of phone , how can i get my old imei number.

    Of course it changed. A phone's IMEI number is unique to each phone. The IMEI number for a phone does not transfer to another phone.
    Since your iPhone was exchanged under warranty without having the box and bill for the original purchase, you don't need it now either. The exchange under warranty remains under the warranty for the original purchase.

  • Will i lose my unlimited plan if I get an Iphone 4s? Or will I have to pay more?

    Will i lose my unlimited plan if I get an Iphone 4s? Or will I have to pay more?

    When I tried to order through At&t, it didn't give an unlimited option. I then ordered through apple website which basically let me get the already existing plan, which has unlimited data. If not for it, I would have gone with Sprint.
