Do I need a computer to buy an iPhone?

You don't need to own a computer, but you will need access to a computer with internet access to activate your iPhone when you first buy it. To view the requirements your computer will need to get your iPhone up and running, visit Apple's website.

  • Please be aware that the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 will lock to the network of the first SIM card that's inserted into them.
  • This includes foreign SIM cards - iPhones will only accept UK SIM cards and will lock to the first UK SIM that's inserted into them. If you're buying an iPhone 4S or 5 to send to someone abroad, please be aware that they'll need a UK SIM and won't be able to use a foreign SIM card.
  • If you're changing networks and your new phone is the iPhone 4S or the iPhone 5, we strongly advise you to not to insert your old SIM into it. If you do this, you'll need to contact Apple who will be able to help.
