    I'm thinking of buying an unlocked iphone from the UK to use in Malta. I've heard some people have encountered problems with updating software and the iphone not working properly if bought from abroad, does this have anything to do with the phone being locked/unlocked? Is it risky for me to buy an iphone from the UK?

    It should be fine vacationing in Malta or are you fortunate to live there?As long as you buy it in an apple store it will be unlocked GSM version but the warranty is only valid in the country of purchase

    As long as you buy a factory unlocked iphone you will never have any problems updating firmware or it ever locking and not letting you use any gsm sim.
