    Hello. Does anyone know where I can get a stable factory unlocked iPhone in the UK? You can't order them from the apple websites because you need an address in the country the store is based!! Any one know please share the love! Thanks

    I think Play.com do them, but they are quite expensive.

    oh my god that is insane numbers! You'd be better off paying the cost for someone else to start a contract and keep the phone yourself!

    Cheapest I found! (Beware of the Hong Kong Option!)

    This is by far the cheapest I found: iphoneliberator.myshopify.com. They have got the 16GB for £649.99 and the 32GB for £739.99 with free delivery.
    I looked at the hong Kong option only you will end up getting stung for import tax and there are a load of scams going on. One of my mates actually ended up buying a counterfeit phone!!! It just sits there and does nothing with a replica iPhone screen lit up!!

    I will treating myself with a phone from these guys as soon as pay day arrives WOO HOOO!

    The price I gave for Hong Kong is the price in the Apple store. I think they are probably not selling counterfeits.

    And while the subject is scams, I would say anyone who buys anything from an online shop that gives:
    1. No postal address
    2. No telephone contact
    3. A Contact page that gives only a gmail address

    must be barking mad.

    Oooooo! Some bodys tired!!
    The next time I am shopping out in the Far East for a few spices for a Tuesday night stir fry I shall pop in and pick one up!

    Fair point about the address though. I will look into this further.

    There are details there

    They have details on their site. Don't know if its been updated since you guys looked. I have spoken to someone on the phone about the 32GB and seems genuine enough. Might put in an order next week. What do you guys think? Is it worth the risk? It is a whole load cheaper than Play.com £899.99!!!!!
