    Hi! I am planning to buy an iPhone in the US cuz it's way cheaper there, and have it shipped to Manila (via Johnny Air Plus). I’ve read the topics regarding Johnny Air here but there’s no discussion about shipping an iPhone through their service as per checking.

    How’s your experience in shipping a phone from US to Manila through them and how many days shipping nila from their NY Warehouse to Manila?

    I would like to know your feedback.

    Thanks!

    AFAIK, Apple doesn’t ship to freight forwarders. I confirmed it recently with my contact in Johnny Air.

    Not sure if anyone else has any luck.

    I think I've read somewhere na nakakapagship sila sa mga freight forwarders pero minsan lang or chamba (idk the right spelling haha). But let's see.. if it fails, I'd buy instead sa ebay or walmart.com

    Better question would be can you use your PH issued credit card to buy from the US online Apple Store?

    Okay time for an update, guys.
    So, I finally purchased an iPhone 12 blue sa Apple Online Store US and have it shipped sa Johnny Air Plus US sa NY

    To answer @tweek 's question: yes, they accepted my PH issued credit card and debit card (since may option na pwedeng hatiin yung bayad, and I used both)
    Then kani-kanina lang, it's for shipping na to Johnny Air NY. (I guess nakachamba ako since Apple US usually doesn't ship sa freight forwarders)

    Sana maging successful maship from Johnny Air to Manila.
    If sa phones ba, ano experiences niyo when shipping a phone (any brand siguro) via Johnny Air to Manila? I would like to hear your thoughts.

    will give you guys more updates soon, if interested kayo :)

    Hi. Just curious what date you ordered yours?

    I ordered an iPhone 12 Pro last October 17, a day after the launch, and my order is still on the processing stage. Estimated shipment date is Nov 9-16.

    Hi. I ordered it yesterday afternoon and now is in transit na to Johnny Air NY.
    I ordered the base iPhone 12 model.

    Siguro it depends rin sa model ng availability ng iPhone 12 Pro. I suggest you call Apple US 1-800-MY–APPLE(6927753) and follow up on your order. It's toll free naman and they are very friendly.

    Wow, that was quick! Yeah, I’m guessing it’s the model availability that’s why you got yours right away.

    I ordered the Pacific Blue 256GB iPhone 12 Pro.

    I just hope they don’t cancel my order. I’ll call them up to follow up. Thanks!

    you'll get your item for sure. i have a lot of transactions with JAC for both business and personal stuff.
    If you have an account manager , always inform him/her about your future shipments, so they can keep track too.
    if you do not have, give them a call .

    i confirm as well that PH credit card works in the Apple US store. I did that before.. picked up in store.

    Thanks for the response!

    I see. Usually how much do you pay for their service sa Johnny Air if bumili ka ng iPhone? And also how many days dumating dito from their warehouse?

    (Apologies, this is my first time using Johnny Air haha)

    2 weeks lead time. For peak seasons [Christmas], 4 weeks.
    you can calculate it online :D you'll have an idea of how much you will pay when it gets here.

    - create an account too so you will see your package' status.

    Johnny Air's shipment estimate for iPhone 12 is Php 4,143. Saw this comment from their Facebook page:

    when you use your PH credit card, do you put local billing address or US?

    Hi! It's been awhile since nagonline ako but here's an update:
    I received the iPhone already via Johnny Air Plus last friday at their Megamall Branch.

    Here's the timeline:

    October 25 - Ordered thru Apple Online Store US and ship to JAC NY Warehouse
    October 29 - JAC NY & one of their account executives notify me that they received the item already.
    November 3 - In Transit to Manila
    (According to their account executive, ETA will be from November 5 - 10, but it got delayed due to some circumstances including the recent typhoon which is understandable)
    November 11 - Makati Head Office received the item
    November 13 - Ready for pick-up at their Megamall Branch

    Tbh, nakakakaba siya because it's my first time using Johnny Air and mahal pa yung device but it's worth it naman! I call and email them from time to time for updates cuz anxious haha. Kudos to Johnny Air for handling the package very well!

    The shipping fee is Php 2300+

    Hindi siya P4,143 na shipping? May paperbag ba ng ishipped sa PH? Nakabox ba? Or iphone box agad?

    PH credit card ba ginamit mo? If yes, did you use the JAC shipping address as your billing address?
