Yes, the iPhones bought from Singapore will work in India without any problem.

Hi. I just got my iPhone 5c today and looking for a good case. I prefer cases made of softer material rather than hard plastic types.

Has anyone ordered from http://www.snoogg.com/ ?

Could folks in forum please suggest some good and within 1k cases ?

Thanks.

It will work fine but forget about warranty and servicing in India. They accept only Apple India products even for paid service. I have been a victim of iPhone 4 purchased from S'pore and being denied service (not just warranty but even paid service!) in India. While the iPhone 5 I purchased in India was replaced without questions asked for a minor warranty issue. Just a heads up.

As far as warranty is concerned I was under the impression that apple has a worldwide warranty. Has this changed?

Until the launch of iPhone 4S, iPhone's bought from outside India were not eligible for warranty cover in India. But IIRC from iPhone 5 onward apple has started honoring international warranty in India as well.

The worldwide warranty is not applicable for the iPhone. That has been the case for at least 4-5 years now. You only get warranty coverage in the country of purchase so for any issues you will have to rely on third party service provider.

Quoting from Warranty Link at Apple site (Included below)

https://www.apple.com/legal/warranty...a-english.html

IMPORTANT RESTRICTION FOR iPHONE AND iPAD SERVICE.
Apple may restrict warranty service for iPhone and iPad to the country where Apple or its Authorized Distributors originally sold the Apple Product.

iphone owners who bought from overseeas can confirm if they were able to receive service and raise claim under warranty in India?

I am not sure though if this was implemented but it was in news for quite sometime that international warranty clause from iPhone 5 has changed and you can service your international iPhone in India as well.

Check the link: http://www.efytimes.com/e1/116860/Ap...or%20India.htm

May be someone who actually faced this issue with their international iPhone 5/5S/5C can confirm on this. If this is true its really good news. We can save at least 5-7K buying an iPhone from US or other countries

Mine is a iPhone 4 bought from US fortunately i never faced any major issues, but i was sure if something goes wrong ASC of apple india wont service my iPhone 4

My sister had an iphone 4 when she was in the UK in 2010.
When she shifted back to India in 2011, she paid a huge amount (700GBP IIRC) to get it unlocked and brought it here.
Within the warranty period, the phone screen stopped working.

The i-store guys refused to honour the warranty. Even after talking to many people they didn't agree. Finally we had to write to Tim Cook (yes, Tim Cook) to get it honoured.
He forwarded it to one more gentleman who took care of the issue till the phone was replaced by a new Indian iphone.

Recently, the new phone also gave some other small problem and again they told that since the account was in UK and they cannot service the problem
We had to write to the same gentleman who again helped us. We got a new iphone but this time it was with a charge of 10K INR.

Thanks.
These prices are only online though. Checked at the iWorld here in gurgaon yesterday. The 5s 16GB is officially priced at 40k and 5c 8GB is 29k. As per the store manager, these are limited period offers, and can be withdrawn anytime.
He had no clue on when and how much the 6 will cost though.

Had read an ET article a few days back on how Apple is giving greater margins to online retailers, and how this is upsetting the physical stores.

I am expecting the 5s/5c prices to fall a bit more, once the 6 hits our shores.

5C is selling for 22-23K at online stores. With the 4s now being the entry model, I doubt that the 5C will go any more cheaper than this. May be 1 or 2K at the max. However, with time say 1 year or by the time iPhone 7, it will again go near the current 4s price.
