I'm off to New York in a few weeks and was thinking of buying an iPhone 5 unlocked but have a few questions;

a)With it being unlocked, will it work in the UK as normal as if I bought it there? I know that might seem an obvious question to some but I just want to be 100% sure

b)What is the likely-hood of me being able to go into an apple store and buy one there? i.e do I need to pre-order 1st or just walk in and pick one up there & then.

c)Is there anything else I might need to know if I get one and bring it back to the UK. I'm aware of possible import tax at the airport

First thing to note is that you need one that is AT&T compatible as the Verizon phones use different frequencies than we do here in the UK. I bought an AT&T iphone 4 in LA when they came out and it worked fine over here.

I missed tax as I put the empty box in my suitcase and carried the phone on me.
