Buying a Iphone 4 in Thailand

Recommended Posts

I'm bad about bringing a camera with me when I go out so decided to invest in a Iphone 4 because it has a good camera. I plan on taking many pics and contributing to this forum starting this trip! ;) I've been to Thailand 4 times this year and want to slap myself for not taking pics of them looking so seksi!

 

So does anyone know a good place to buy a Iphone 4 thats factory unlocked in Pattaya or Bangkok? I was there in September but was worried they could be fakes. I'll be going again in December and really wanting to buy one. Want a Iphone 4 because I just bought a Macbook Pro from Bestbuy and will go good with it.

Iphone 4 does have a good little camera but if you want decent picture use a camera not a phone. You just can't compare the image quality. Taking pictures in bars requires quick focus and a fast shutter speed, you will end up with poor out of focus blurry images.

Aaah I see, I'll research a camera thats small and takes pictures fast. Last one I had took forever to load up and take a picture that I barely used it. (Still getting a Iphone 4 though lol)

I dont know this could help or not but maybe you should try Tukcom in Pattaya. There are so many telephone shops on the 2nd floor and they have both real and fake phones. I know I saw one place that sells real IPhone 4 and the price was 27000THB something like that.

I agree 100%. I have an iPhone4 and I take photos with it but when it's up to shooting TG's I would never take it out of my pocket...even if I didn't had any other camera with me. Honestly camera in iPhone is piece of shit....same like in all other phones. Buy real camera that is for one purpose only - taking photos.

Why not get a phone with a decent camera if u want an all-in one job. Many phones out there have far superior cameras than the iphone. But yeah, if u want top notch pics than just buy a decent camera.

Google's own Picasa is very good for free editing software.

i thought about picking up an iphone for my upcoming trip. I probably will go with a 3G or 3GS as they are available for cheap unlocked and jailbroke. I just need a GSM phone to use in Thailand. My only concern is how usable it will be in the hot and humid climate of Thailand. The touchscreen phone I have now (Palm Pre) is a pain in the ass to use outside when its really humid.

Don't expect iPhones in Thailand to be any cheaper than the are in the West. Generally, electronics are quite expensive in Thailand (if you want cheap electronics, try Singapore or Taiwan). However, I guess that it will be easy to buy them factory unlocked - it certainly is in most Asian countries. If do buy one from a stall, then make sure that you see it working before you part with any money. The fakes can look pretty convincing from the box and the case but they are very obvious the moment they are turned on. They don't have the beautiful, slick Apple interface or the ultra high quality display.

I purchased a Thai Iphone 4. It was a pretty good copy I thought.

 

The applications were useless.

The Iphone 4 (fake) was a little bit bigger than the original so no covers fit.

I couldn't get www to work, nor could the bloke at the shop.

Two sims was great.

I sat down with it in my pocket, and the screen shattered. It went in the bin.

That cost me 4500THB.

 

Not happy.

I wouldn't buy and Iphone 4 in Thailand, unless you live there and really want one of course. To get a real Iphone 4 you're going to pay as much or even more then most western countries. If you don't know the product fairly well there is also the risk that you buy a fake one.

 

Depending where you're flying from a stopover in Hong Kong or Singapore is always an option. These cities have the cheapest simlock free Iphones in the world and a lot of mongering possibilities :D

Chart is not super recent, but still relevant I think.

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it!

I paid 21,500.00 THB = 494.304 EUR for a Iphone 4 16G at TUKCOM Which is the best price you can get worldwide today so people please stop posting disinformation and BS.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
