    does it matter? if you plan to use the US phone in the UK you will have to jailbreak it and then sim unlock it anyways.

    you can take a US phone and make it work on any UK network - but it isnt going to happen through iTunes.

    You are going to have to jailbreak it (so bypassing the activation screen on the phone) and then once you are inside - you will need to use a SIM unlock solution to make the phone work with your provider.

    You aren't being too clear so I am not sure if you are trying to get on O2's iPhone package - if thats the case - I am not sure what the deal is with US phones wanting to join it. It might be the case that you go to Carphone Warehouse or something and tell them u have a phone and just want to join the plan.

    I spoke to O2 this morning as i am an O2 customer and he said just plug the iphone in and open Itunes and the activate it , you can transfer your number over. But when i put my iphone in once i restore it it goes to the AT&T activation page.
