Can I buy ipad from the US and use in UK??
I live in the UK and want to buy an Ipad. Like everything in the UK, it's overpriced. The 64gb wifi edition is £600. Can I buy online from the states, have it shipped over and use it over here? or will it be restricted in some way (like xbox 360 games). Would also like to do the same for an itouch 8gb. Want to buy one for my son, but they are £130 (best price)
I will obviously looking to JB both.
Any advice please?

I live in Denmark and got a 3g ipad from the US complete with US powerplug but you can pull that off and slide on any Apple UK plug from eg airport express. I also got an extension cord from Germany as their plugs work in Denmark but you'll want to get your megaplugs in the Uk ofcourse. as to simcard, I got a cheap one from a local supplier called cbb. Cut it to size to fit the microsim standard and entered the pin and presto, i had 3g service. Even if the ipad isnt for sale in Denmark yet, my Danish itunes account welcomed me onboard with my new ipad and quickly dispensed with the activation and I've since bought 50 or so applications in the store, in addition to my iphone apps. So all in all I'd say no worries mate. Ps dont forget to factor in the duties/vat; my friendly tax department wanted 200 pounds for the service of letting me import my ebay-bought unit.
