    Hey guys,

    I'm in the United States. I'm trying to buy 2 Iphone 3Gs (32g) without contract to be used in another country in Asia for my cousins. I'm hoping you guys can help me answer a few basic questions.

    1) Does it need to be 'unlocked' if it's for use in Asia?

    2) Where should I start looking to buy at a reasonable price?

    3) How much is reasonable?

    Thanks for your answers. I appreciate any responses.

    If you want the top-of-the-line iPhone unlocked, be prepared to spend about $600.00 for each new phone. You may be able to find a used one on eBay for less, but I'd be wary of ripoffs!

    I'm aware of the price.

    Is E-bay the best place to grab a few? Thanks for the feedback.

    make sure the country you're sending it to supports the same frequencies and technologies as a US iphone.

    reasonable is subjective.

    I'd suggest ebay or craigslist.

    You can also try searching the diff forums and look in their marketplace.

    Technically you should be able to buy from ATT with no commitment pricing.
