WHEN the iPhone is released in the UK, is it likely that a person can buy the iPhone in the US and activate it with Apple's iPhone service provider in the UK? Or would you have to buy the iPhone in the UK?

I am NOT asking if you can currently use an iPhone in the UK.

I guess it depends on how the SIM card in the iPhone works. I know just sticking an AT&T SIM card in the iPhone won't make it work, you have to use th e SIM card it came with. If the SIM card in a USA iPhone works with AT&T only, I would guess that would be the main issue getting a UK iPhone to work.
