    Default Buying a phone in the States.

    hi all

    I'm off to the states for a week in April and wondered what the situation is with buying phones out there to use over here. ie GSM, compatibility etc etc. I assume and iphone from the apple sotre wil lbe usable over here but wanting to move away from my iphone4 to something like HTC, Experia Z or nexus 5.

    does anybody have any advice.

    The yanks use different frequencies for both 3G and 4G, so whatever you buy over there is unlikely to work in the UK for internet access.
