There is a difference between a 'sale' (purchase ownership) and a 'license' 
(purchase right to use). If you paid bought an iPhone (and not leased it), it 
would constitute a 'sale' regardless of the small print on the tin. A seller 
cannot take away ownership rights by calling the transaction a 'license'. This 
may void warranty, though.

IANAL, so take this as a layman's opinion.
