All of India rejoiced as the iPhone 3GS came available all across the region as of March 2010. The iPhone 3GS has many wonderful features such as a longer battery life, super fast autofocus camera, landscape keyboard, and much more; and countries all across the world waited anxiously for Apple to release the iPhone 3GS in their country. Unfortunately, India had a pretty long wait and the new fab-phone wasn’t available until March 2010. But, it is pretty costly and can be difficult to find. So if you want to know how to purchase an iPhone 3GS in India, here’s how to do it.
First, go to the Apple site to order your iPhone 3GS; you can do that here. Once you get that beautiful little device and are holding it in your hand, you will then need a carrier who will give you a plan to use that wonderful device. Luckily, there’s a carrier who will do that for you, but it’s certainly going to cost you. Airtel is the company that will provide you with the phone service that you will need for your new iPhone 3GS. You can visit their website here to find out more about them and their iPhone carrier plans but, they’ve also released some information regarding the plans and they’re not cheap.
A 16GB iPhone from Airtel will cost users about Rs. 35,500; and the 32GB model costs Rs. 41,500, which is about $900 USD, for all our American readers. Airtel also has the 8GB iPhone 3GS for Rs. 29,500. You won’t only get the features you’d expect from Airtel though, such as being able to text and have a certain number of long distance minutes, but you’ll also get 500MB of free data every month for a year.
Of course, if you choose to use Airtel you could eliminate the first step of using the Apple website altogether, and just go straight through Airtel.
