    Default Buy iPhone from UK Apple web store, plan activation needed?

    Hi all!

    I have a friend living in the UK who is willing to buy an iPhone for me.

    If the phone is bought from the Apple web store, there is no need to sign up for an O2 plan when purchasing the phone, is that right?
    The activation etc. should be done by me, using iTunes, when I get the phone?

    The reason I ask is that there are reports about having to sign up for the plan already in the store if the phone is bought in an O2 store and I don't want my friend to have any more trouble "than necessary" to get me this thing.

    So can someone verify that no such plan selection and "signing" is needed when purchasing from the Apple web store?

    Thanks in advance!
