there wouldn't be any problem. Simply unlock the iPhone and put in your simcard. Better, buy the iPhone from France where you can get it unlocked "properly" so to speak.

yes, in most cases they can be stolen.

but the real risk lies in what do you do if/when something goes wrong. search around the forum, there's a thread about a guy who bought his iPhone from ebay, activated legit on AT&T and AT&T is screwing him up the ass at the moment. buy it legit unlocked in france... it's your best bet.

Urgent!

I am traveling to Strasbourg this Saturday just to buy my iPhone(unlocked without contract). Do you think its available in the stores there. Also let me know if there are any price differences there..! and i hope they give the unlocked iPhones without asking for any address proof within france because i stay in germany.

Thanks

Lucky you. Strasbourg is such a beautiful city. You should check out the Xmas market there, it's awesome!
If you buy just the phone, without any plan, I'm pretty sure they won't ask for a mailing address, so you're fine!

You still have to buy the plan, even if you're buying it unlocked - in which case you have to pay another 100 euro on top ... I think that's the case
