    Not true, that is against the law to decline sales to someone of a specific race. They don't ask for a drivers license as far as I know. Just buy it as if you were buying something at the grocery store. To activate it you do it on your computer so all you have to do is buy it, you don't activate it at the store or anything. So if you were out of the states, you just have to unlock it and then put your SIM in. Also you may want to try and get a iPhone without the iTunes icon on the box (you'll be lucky if you find one) because if it does, it will either have 1.1.2 or 1.1.3 and I am not sure if you can downgrade 1.1.3 the way you downgrade 1.1.2 without activation.

    Hope this helps!

    "specific race" there is a big difference from being a different race and being a citizen of the US, for all you know he is the same race as you are. Anyway, you are right that he can buy an iphone.

    IIRC the 1.1.3 downgrade for iPhones is still very buggy.
