Apple Ipad


Hi,

My gf is heading to the states this week and i am interested in getting her to buy me an Apple Ipad while shes there.

I am UK based. I am wondering is there any reason why i shouldnt buy an IPAD from the US if im going to use it exclusively ihn Europe.

Apart from the chargers/adapters, is there anything else i should be taking into consideration?

Thanks
Seamus

You are fine to buy an ipad from the US, as long as you have the adaptor sorted it will be configured correctly the first time you connect to itunes. Are you intending to buy the 3g one, or the normal WIFI one - obviously if you get the 3g one you need to consider the 3g connectivity and sourcing an additional microSIM.

Thanks guys

Do you think customs would have any problems with it coming over?

Cheers

Hmm, ... Is there a "Customs" zone at EE? :-))

No clue. You may want to check your country's import legislation. With just a time zone to tell where you may live (and that may not even reflect your true time zone), there's really not much we can advise.

If you declare it, you will need to pay a import duty (small %) - the personal limit AFAIk is £390.. if you dont declare it you could risk it being confiscated... its your call :)
Thanks guys, i will go with that option of putting the packing in the suitcase and the ipad in hand luggage, good thinking!!

Thanks
