Now you don't have to wait to get your hands on Apple's iPhone. A website called iPhone-Singapore is selling unlocked iPhones for S$1500.
Currently the iPhone is only available in US and it is locked into AT&T, meaning that consumers who want the iPhone must use AT&T.
This has led to hackers unlocking the iPhone and it looks like the folks from iPhone-Singapore are doing the same and making money out of it by selling the unlocked (hacked) iPhones which may or may not be illegal.
According to the site, it has already sold a couple of unlocked iPhones to its customers from Singapore, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and even the UK. One of the customers, Bahula from India left a comment on the website: "After ordering my iPhone from iPhone-Singapore, I received it in 3 weeks. I am so happy, this phone is very good." Another customer, Jason from Singapore said: "iPhone-Singapore.com has made my dream come true, this iPhone is magical!"
There's no way to verify the authenticity of these comments or the website so I'm not sure how reliable the service is. But oh well, if you have S$1500 to burn and you really want to be the first few in Singapore to own an iPhone, then I see no harm trying the website out. Just let me know when you receive your iPhone.
