What is the difference between buying a Parallel imported iPhone4 (unlocked) from a tiny retail store that has been going for a while as opposed to from Apple store?
It looks like the only difference (from outside) is the power plug (and printed instruction in Chinese) - But is there any issues with buying it from non Vodafone dealer / Apple directly.
For example, does it stop me from getting the same consumer protection / access to Apple apps & updates ?
The Parallel Imported one cost $200 less and obtainable 3 weeks faster than the Applestore one.
What is the catch?
