Advice needed, buying iPhone 6 in the US
The new iPhone won't be available in my country until December or so, and even then, it will be difficult to buy as it will be overpriced and hard to find. So I am thinking of getting one from the US.
Now, I have a friend who is going to Arizona this 28th, and will return on 13th October. What I am planning to do is buy and email myself an Apple Store Gift Card, and then give it to my friend. What I want to know is whether the stock will be readily available in the first week of October for my friend to walk in and buy one. And also, if she will face any issues buying one using the gift card.
And also, as I understand, buying the Verizon iPhone 6 is the best option if I want to use it on a GSM provider in my country as Verizon iPhones are GSM unlocked. Am I right to assume that?
And also, will my friend be able to purchase a Verizon iPhone 6 at full price without paying for anything extra for the included Verizon stuff/monthly plan price?
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
