Locked iPhone 5 16GB is available for $499
Better go for an unlocked phone. You never know if jailbreak (and unlock) will be available for a particular phone/baseband and OS version. I had iPhone 4 for which software unlock was not available, so used it with Gevey SIM unlock for a few months. Having used Gevey SIM, I recommend people not to use it. Bottom line, it is always better to go for a factory unlocked phone.

Got my iPhone 4S replaced from Apple Store Noida as it had some speaker issues . They gave me a shiny new one

I intend to sell this one as it is new and I should get better price and get a 5 , I inquired from 2-3 shops and they offered me 30K , is it a fair price ?

Also I called Reliance Store and Apple Store in Noida and they said that they will be providing the 5 in 3rd week of December that's also if you book with 10k non refundable amount .

Any pointers to buy a 5 from a reliable shop in and around Delhi?

Hey 30k is a very good price for a 4s. There are plenty of used 4s available for around 25k in the market. So go ahead and sell it.

I've been buying from a shop in Karol Bagh for more than 6 years now. Bought 2 iphones from there as well. Lowest price in delhi. Very reliable and gives with bill and warranty. You can call him at 9811259563.

PS: I am not associated with the shop.

A little OT:

From today, FLIPKART has been named as the Authorized Internet Re-seller of Apple products. However, there are no iPhones on sell as of now on the site.

The prices of all iPads and iPods are flat 2k less than retail prices.

iPad or ipod prices are not really less than their retail price on flipkart. The iPad ( 3rd generation) prices were recently dropped about 1600 Rupees. Everyday there is an advertisement in the newspaper about this slash.

Was it an Apple Store or reseller? 30K is a fair price for 4S if it is 16GB.
