    You would have to jailbreak and unlock it for it to work in the UK.

    Hmm would that be hard or is it something most people could do by using some tutorials which are out there on few decent websites and is it worth the trouble as the price difference is only about 80 which is not alot but I think anyway even if I got it in Uk I would jailbreak it as I wouldn't want to pay for all the apps..

    Check the GSM frequencies. I'm not sire if Europe and the US use the same. T Mobile and Att have problems because of the different GSM bands. But you should be okay with a jailbroken and unlocked US iPhone.

    If you're too cheap to buy apps, don't buy an iPhone. Fail.

    Huh how is jailbreaking stealing wait wait no need to go so hard on me isn't jailbreaking your iphone legal in some parts as its just a thing which allows you to instal 3rd party software on "my iphone/ipod" and its not excacly stealing any thing from my point of view corect me if I am wrong...

    Oh yeah and btw I decided not to jailbreak my iPod as I had no idea how cheap the apps are, to be honest i though they would be more pricey oh yeah and I got the newest iPod instead of the 3gs my first apple iPod so don't blame me for not knowing the prices of apps :P

    Paid apps are paid apps. Of course, there are tons of free apps available for both j/b and non-j/b phones. You don't have to jailbreak to get free apps. So, when you say that you want to jailbreak because you don't want to pay for apps, people think that you mean that you are jailbreaking so that you can download pirated paid apps in the app store.
