iPhone 3GS Hero

Buy.com is offering the iPhone 3GS at 32GB "Never-Locked LEGALLY Unlocked" for $999. You can also get the iPhone 3G at 16GB for $849.

While seller DB Electronics doesn't source the gear, we can only guess they're picking them up somewhere Apple sells unlocked iPhones (like Hong Kong) and reselling them here (if someone knows better, drop us a correction in the comments).

What that means for manufacturers warranties and/or Apple Care, well, we don't fancy the plane ride. If you don't either, make sure you establish how the reseller will be covering exchanges/repairs for you.

So, any world-travelers going to take the plunge at 1K?
