About Khaled A.


  1. Is it illegal to sell ipads via US to Saudi? Thanks

  2. @ rich

    I don’t think so.. iPads are not locked to any company. So legally I believe it’s OK to buy it from US and sell it in Saudi Arabia.

  3. Very helpful and informative posts Khaled! Many thanks for your great contribution. Keep it up!

  4. I have a friend who wants me to send him iPad’s from the US to Saudi. Howver I think by the time you pay for shipping it might be cheaper to buy from Saudi or somewhere else. Price in US with tax is 524.00, plus shipping to Saudi, 240.00 so $764.00 US, that seems to much.
