    Hey,
    Yes iphone in India costs three times more than in USA. So definitely it is beneficial to buy an iphone from USA and use it in India. iphones purchased from USA can be used in India easily all you have to do is to break the lock. There are some easy steps involved:

    1. Cut SIM.
    2. Switch on your iphone.
    3. Accept the information.
    4. After 15 seconds, dial 112 and cut the call within 2 sec.
    5. Now go to settings menu and change the airplane mode from OFF to ON.
    6. Wait untill it shows a message.
    7. Once the message appears, OFF the airplane mode. Another message will pop up..just tap OK.
    8. Now your SIM will be detected automatically.

    So one of the most puzzling question answered really making one of break through because people require to cut cost and make more margin over product they buy but apple products are costlier in India making a trouble for consumers to buy so if the replies shown are correct then it will be a great one for the consumers.

    The prices for iPhone is usually less as the phone comes with 1 or 2 year contract. If you get the unlocked version it is almost the same price as it is in India. But you can use the locked by getting it flashed from any mobile shop for 1-2ks.

    Since this question was bumped, I will answer it properly.

    Given that you are aiming at the $200 priced iPhone, then no. It will not work in India.

    The $200 rate will bind you to a 2 year contract with AT&T (a US network). That means the phone can only be used with a SIM card from AT&T. You cannot use it in India.

    The only way for you to have an iPhone that can be used in India is to buy a factory unlocked unit. That means you can insert any SIM in there and use it in any carrier wherever you are in the world. However, that will cost 3 or 4 times more.
