I have beed asked to buy an iPhone 4S in the US for a relative in France. Will it work there as if it had been bought there?

    Only if it is anUNLOCKED iPhone purchased from an Apple Store or the Apple Online Store. Haven't seen one in a store yet and people who ordered them online are still awaiting delivery.

    The officially unlocked GSM version will work just fine. However, that model is currently only available through Apple's online store, I don't believe stock has reached brick/mortar stores yet, you'll have to check.


    Why do you want to purchase in the US? Your warranty & support will only be valid in the US, and you can purchase officially unlocked iPhones in France that have an EU wide warranty. Doesn't make any sense to me.
