    2. Is there defo no import tax on a 16gb wifi model?
    3. What are the disadvantages of a US one over waiting for the UK version.

    1. If you get the phone number for the store and ring up im sure you could, if they still do that!
    2. On personal goods there is a £390 limit so should be ok, dont no how it would work if its still boxed though. Best NOT to put it in the hand luggage.
    3. There isnt. If something goes wrong you will just have to wait until the UK release to get it changed. If not send it back to the US.

    1. No preorders anymore. Unless you go to the store first to reserve one.
