Purchase of gray iPhone: what risks for the Ukrainian buyer it bears and as to avoid them


Why Ukrainians buy "gray" phones? What do they differ from official in? How to make sure that will sell you official model? Where to find the list of official sellers and the service centers of the equipment Apple? What goods are called "gray" and why Unlike the equipment which is officially imported for sale into the country (and undergone all necessary certification), the devices which appeared in the market bypassing legal distribution channels and without payment of customs duties and taxes are called "gray". So they are opposed to official deliveries which go "on white". The gray goods are not only violation of the provisions of the law, its sale contradicts the principles of the producer which cannot guarantee appropriate service of such device that bears risks and for its reputation.
