    I'm currently in the US and will be here for the iPhone 7 launch.

    Pricing aside, if I pick one up over here, is there any compatibility issue with using it when I get back to the UK..? Any restrictions?

    I've googled this but can't find definitive answers.

    I'm also a U.K. Resident out here this time every year and all ways buy the latest release iPhone and have been doing for the last 3 years.
    This year I will be saving myself £100 compared to if I purchase in the uk, jet Black iPhone 7 128gb. I usually pick either the AT&T model or the Tmobile model, if you purchase from a Apple Store And pay outright they are unlocked and your have no problem with sticking your uk sim in place of the one it comes loaded with. (It won't have the sim removal tool just find yourself a paper clip or something similar)
    All you have to remember is the supplied charging plug will be an American 2 pin style plug and won't work in the uk without an adapter.

    Pick an ATT/TMobile model and you'll be fine

    My wife is in the US for a couple of weeks, can I buy one online and get it delivered to her?
    Anyone tried that?
    She isn't going to queue up in a store :D
    Plus can I get the apple care in the uk once the phone is over here?
