    Im sure this has been covered before buy at this point I don't have the time to search the forums throughout. If I buy an iPhone from the UK. Ship it to the US. And unlock it to use on T-Mobile USA. Are there any other challenges that would make this process any different than if the iPhone was from the US?

    no, but it will be FAR cheaper to buy in the US, rather than buy in UK and ship

    £269 + £20 shipping = £289

    vs.

    $400 + sales tax $15 = $415/£210

    saving = £79 / 2 iPod Shuffles, 2 Pizzas and 2 Beers

    both, after being unlocked will work.

    oh, and one more thing:
    the UK iPhone has 4 ugly logo's written on the back, with pictures of bins and crosses on. the US one doesn't!

    UK price

    always wondered - where does the delta in price go to? If VAT is included, then it's not going to Her Majesty, then who?
