Hey guys my moms gotta a few questions before i get an iphone. "I understand, from what I've read, that buying an unlocked iphone does not seem to be illegal. What I'm not clear at all on is how you get service after that -- don't you have to purchase time from a company whether it's on a monthly basis or 1 or 2 year contract & if not, is it legal? If there is a problem with the phone, is there any kind of warranty?" - Itchweeed ' s mom.
