The Communications Ministry has banned the import of iPhone 4s. The ministry rejected importers applications to import Apple's latest smartphone, but were told that until Israeli mobile carriers launch iPhone 4s, the ministry will not issue a certificate for a new device and will not allow it into the country.

The Communications Ministry previously banned iPod imports on the same grounds, until massive public pressure forced Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon to change his mind.
