The main thing with such a purchase is to choose the right smartphone model, since not all phones support Russian LTE frequencies. A table of compatible devices with their codes can be found both on the official website Apple and on all kinds of professional Internet resources.

The second nuance to which you should pay attention will be the indication of the mail forwarder's address. Apple takes care of the income of its overseas dealerships and resellers, so it limits the order from US stores for citizens of other countries. If the first time you didn’t manage to place a purchase to the US address of the intermediary, do not worry – make several attempts with different address options.
