Remember the revised version of the iPhone 4 (not S) will only be available in 8GB storage. 16GB and 32GB have been discontinued.
Please take that into consideration when comparing prices from past and if you want a higher capacity iPhone 4, get one of the older variants while they last.

I am looking for 8GB capacity iphone 4 only whenever it launches or shall we say relaunches here in india. I will buy it if it will be priced below 25K INR. My dad's 3GS kicks my xperia x10's behind any time even with comparatively below par hardware specs.

I am fed up with android (currently on 2.3.3) and the numerous issues like poor apps, battery drain, hangs etc. Etc. Associated with my phone while the iphone 3gs and ipad 2 in my house work flawlessly.

That's a good price, not everyone is lucky as you :-)

However note that the iPhone warranty is only valid in the Country of purchase.

Generally the apple give warranty for 6months or one year onlt. The KH purchases one is international warranty. There won't be any extension of warranty for Iphones.

Default Factory unlocked

Factory unlocked iPhone 4S will be available from November at $649+Taxes in USA .

Cheers to Apple for providing Factory Unlocked phone right from the time of launch . In case of iPhone 4 they took 1 year+ to do so.

I got the Factory unlocked iPhone 4 for my wife from USA @ $600+ Taxes and I think its worth the money as you dont have to go through the hassle of Jailbreaking and Unlocking and other Jugaad stuff

Here in Canada, iphone 4S is being sold as "unlocked" from day 1. Additionally, ppl can choose to continue with their existing contract or a new contract with the authorised service providers and avail a discounted price for the device.

Also interesting is that the 4S iphones sold unlocked wont support CDMA. and AWS was never supported in the first place.

The unlocked iPhone works only on supported GSM networks, such as AT&T in the U.S. When you travel internationally, you can also use a micro-SIM card from a local GSM carrier. The unlocked iPhone will not work with CDMA carriers such as Verizon Wireless or Sprint.

Apple is taking pre-orders just for contracted version. Factory unlocked are not available for pre-order booking as o now in USA. Moreover, all pre-order stock for release date is sold out and the wait period is now 1 - 2 weeks from launch date.

It was a record break sale of IPhone 4S on release date. Though poor Steve Job is not only in Apple as well as in the earth.His work remains with apple. Let us welcome I Phone 4S as well as mourn for Steve Job.

Default iOS 5 Update

Can we update our iPhone4 with iOS 5 from iTunes today?
Seems today is the iOS 5 launch date.
Whether Siri Beta is avaiable for iPhone4 too?
