    I know that the French iPhone can be purchased unlocked for a higher cost. If someone can get my hands on it, will it sync up with an American based iTunes account? I know the phone is unlocked and will work with any SIM, regardless of the country.

    I know that they ask for the credit card information and I think location. Is there a chance that they may see that an iTunes account is a US based account, and refuse to sync up a French iPhone?

    I really have no interest in purchasing an iPhone, I don't even have an iTunes account. I am just really curious about this issue and if they will try to stop it. Also, a French iPhone would keep people from "bricking" their iPhone.

    It is possible to unlock a US model, but from what I can tell Apple is doing everything in their power to either brick the unlocked US models, or just make life in general miserable for those users.
