    Default I need your help guys!

    Hello for everybody! Guys I need your help. I'm gonna buy new iphone 4s or 5. What do you think: It's easier and cheap buy on-line or in the normal stores. I'm just 3 month in USA, thats why I don't have a credit history. I never used on-line buying. Thats why if you think on-line, please don't forget show the names of sites. Which sites is secure.

    Just buy it through Apple. Although your carrier of choice will probably run a credit check, when you are establishing your account with them.

    Gonna cost you the same regardless of where you buy it. Apple maintains their prices through all their sales outlets.

    Yeah I say the same go to and buy it there but depending on the wait time you could also while you're waiting head in to a store and they might have the model in the store for you. Then you can cancel the online order. When you're buying online the most important thing before you put your credit card number in is to check where it says http: before the web address and make sure it says https. The s stands for secure which means your creditcard info will be encrypted when you send it. It seems almost a second thought these days but I have run into one or two sites that wasn't secure.

    I would buy it in the store so you don't have to wait for shipping...but regardless, like mentioned above, it's not going to make a difference for price or for credit checking purposes.

    If you decide you need to do it online, just use Apple's website.
