ive had m8s hit with customs before. nasty people

now they just dont tell them everything theyve got:P if they buy clothes they take the lables off and say they are there own:P

not to sure about electricals

let me know tho will u please:P

i know a few people in american could maybe send it over:P or do they check post?:| lol

I think if you dispose of the box (or post in home empty), you could easily say you had the iphone upon entering.

Sending an iphone over i wouldnt recommend, if the value of item is over £18 (i think) it needs to be delcared for tax / customs duty to be charged. And if you say its under £18 and it gets broken, you can't claim for the cost or if you do, you';ll only get £18 max back :-(

i wouldnt want to send it home just take it back it was the box issue that worried me.

Although i know a girl who got her ds from america and all they did was kinda mess up the box abit in her suitcase cos she told them it was personal stuff lol
