As Matt101101 can't be bothered to help you properly, it is about £100 or so cheaper for the iPhone whilst in the USA.

Ask a lazy question, get a lazy answer. It's not hard to convert the dollar price of an iPhone into GBP, is it?

They may not have known how to access the US Apple store.

Do add sales tax in your calculations. It varies from state to state, so I would suggest add 10% extra to sale price.

Example: $649 + $649 * .1 = $715 / 1.55 + ($715 / 1.55) * .03 = £475
This is assuming 10% tax + 3% foreign currency fee, calculated on 16GB iPhone 5.

Unless iPhone costs £575 in UK, I don't know where you get £100 discount from.

Google: "Apple Store USA", job done.

If they found their way here and managed to ask a question, I'm sure they could locate the US Apple store.

Now now, matt... if nobody asks questions here, we might as well close down.
And sometimes I google stuff only to then get much better info when I ask on Twitter etc...
Nothing wrong with the question imho.

Converting the dollar price says nothing about tax, possible ex-/import hassle etc...

So:
