    Beth: AT&T and Verizon are providers, like Orange, Vodaphone, Carphonewarehouse etc in the UK. You can buy factory unlocked 4 and 4s 16gb phones direct from an USA Apple store, and pop in a UK micro sim and it will work. I have sim cards from all over the world that I put in my 4s which I purchased from Apple in NYC. Remember the prices you see on their website, are before sales tax. You will also need to get yourself an power adaptor which you can find in the uk, as the English sockets dont support the American 2-pin plug.
