I see. And this is what you've been busy with?

Ehmmm..... If one sources iPhone from US, will it work here without unlocking it? The answer is NO for the moment.
So why take the trouble of sourcing one from US etc? Heerapanna seems to be a better option.

The iPhone currently only being sold in america so why would i pay a premium for it by buying it locally here.

i had ordered for the iPhone from states and Sahil you are right the iphone was locked and had to b activated before doing anything but there are various ways to bypass it. also the unlock part was a bit hard as currently there are 4 methods of unlocking it:-
1. the method posted by Unknown.
2. involves messing with the sim card.
3. HW unlock
4. easier method of hw unlock
5. SW UNLOCK(Expected to release soon)

and akshay1234
yes all the functions work but have currently disabled the phone function as i was expecting a SW Unlock soon and wanted to test it. i got it for 50000 Rs = $648 for iphone including american taxes + 80$ for delivery + 35% custom tax (i dont remember the exact figure).

i needed to pay such an amount because i got it sent from states from a friend. but if u buy it from there it will only cost u $648
