    You dont sign the contract for the phone in any of the shops, the activation is applied through iTunes which you have to do yourself :p

    skirocket is correct but you should have an English name and address complete with a valid postcode(the name and address need not be real) in case you get a stickler of a salesperson, always better to be prepared. You can say you are buying the iphone as a pressie for that person.

    Oh and BTW I am pretty sure you must pay by Credit Card.

    Head to the O2 store at 123 Northumberland Street or the Carphone Warehouse store at 39 Northumberland street... You can't miss them - they're both right in the main shopping street.

    When I bought mine in an Apple store in the US I paid with a UK credit card and gave my UK home address and it didn't seem to bother them. Have fun with it!

    Somebody I talked to in Sweden thought that you had to sign your contract before you leave the store if you´re not in the applestore? Is that not true?
    Can I feel safe to buy in a O2 store or Carphone Warehouse?

    I bought mine in the Apple Store in London, maybe I can be of any help... I just entered, went to the counter, asked for a 16GB iPhone and used the credit card. The guy didn't ask me anything...
