    No, restoring it via iTunes will not make it into a US iPhone 4. The only thing that will do is reset everything back to the factory default settings.

    If it is an unlocked version, yes. A sim card from any GSM PROVIDER will work. Un less it was a
    CDMA version built for verizon.

    The link that I provided did say that it will work, however, restoring it in iTunes will not turn it into a US iPhone 4 like the OP was referring to.

    There is no difference between an Chinese and an American iPhone. Just go in and change the language and keyboard to English. My wife's boss change her phone to Chinese all the time.

    True, the language can be changed. However, I read here that the Chinese version of the iPhone 4 does not have WiFi support or YouTube, which can be a big difference if this is correct. Got iPhone 4 from China - Use in US with AT&T? - Yahoo! Answers

    I live in Ohio and have an iphone 4. I have someone who wants to buy my iphone for her sister in China and wondered if it would work there. It is AT&T. Also, do the text titles on the apps remain in english, can they be changed to Chinese?

    Thanks
