If i buy a phone from usa will it work in england?

i want to buy a iphone or a side kick from america because it is cheaper than buying in england


Possibly not because the UK uses different SAR levels and restrictions also the wave bands like GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900

HSDPA 900 / 1700 / 2100

And I am lead to believe America has not caught up with this type of connections yet. So be weary.


Yes, but only Edge will work, no 3G.


if it is unlocked,yes...because if it is available in your country than it has the needed technology...


Highly unlikely as all the nations have different technology in use. I used to work for VZ and phones had to be rented for foreign travel and in some cases reprogrammed. So, I would not make this purchase as the phone will not be compatable with your homeland systems.
