    Hi, just popping in to check that buying a chinese iPhone 4 will be fine with working in the UK.

    Someone has an iPhone 4 - chinese - for sale, much cheaper than any i can find that are not from china. And i just want to make sure that it will work properly in the UK, and that everything will work fully in english.

    Please can someone answer this asap, thanks

    You will probably be able to call. But expect this, no App Store, laggy interface, aswell as bad build quality.

    None of the fake ones run iOS, just a bad knockoff that look like it.

    genuine chinese iPhones are crippled - they have no wifi builtin + they are netlocked to china mobile - so buying one of them is a nogo for UK residents or anybody else who doesn't live in china!

    the iphones sold in china have a special serial number too!
    how to check whether it is fake or not? well let him/her give you the S/N + IMEI and you can check it on the apple website (check for warranty, every idevice is in apples database even when warranty expired!)
