Using us iPhone 5 in uk
Going to USA for holiday. If I buy an unlocked iPhone 5 will it e good to use on uk network? Are 3G and 4g frequencies the same?
Also if I have a problem will USA warranty cover me in uk?

See this thread where I was discussing the same situation with someone else: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1505635
Regarding the warranty, it's hard to say. It's really hit or miss. Sometimes they'll swap in another country, sometimes they won't. Officially, the warranty states they MAY refuse service anywhere except the country of purchase.
Hope this helps.

That being said, they will probably only service the same model that is sold in the UK, which is the A1429 GSM model. US carriers doesn't sell the A1429 GSM model (when you sign up for a carrier) or pay upfront. A1428 for AT&T and A1429 CDMA for Verizon and Sprint. Now, while carriers don't sell the A1429 GSM version, I have no idea what model iPhone 5 Apple sells outright in Apple Stores. Can anyone in the US comment?
EDIT: Warranty aside, The CDMA version of A1429 and GSM A1429 will both work in the UK. The CDMA actually has more frequencies than the GSM model in terms of LTE.
