    Thread: Mobile phones.

      Mobile phones.

      Are we better off buying iPhones over here in the uk before travelling, having them unlocked and setting up an Oz contract when we arrive. Or is it cheaper to buy under contract once finally in Australia?

      Any advice on cost of iPhones and contract great fully received.

      iPhones need to be unlocked by Apple or the warranty is void, so you can't go to a Market stall (and apple will know).

      O2 will unlock them free if you're on contract, 10 if payg. Orange require you to have been with them minimum 3 months and charge 20. Unsure about the others.

      You can buy the unlocked from Apple which is what I did, but they are about 450 for the 16gb.
