Which iPad Retina should I buy in the US so it will work in the UK?

I am going to the States next month and want to buy the new iPad there.  Which iPad Retina should I buy in the US so it will work in the UK, the AT&T or Verizon model? I'm probably staying with O2, but can't tell if different models are sold in the UK, or if its just the one.  If just the one, I can't find which model number it is for the UK. The apple store website isn't exactly clear on which model(s) is/are sold in the UK.

Hi,
We don't have cellular, but I have often read many ques. and answers here just for my own info when we were first buying. I do know that in the past, Verizon had a different system than ATT and others. That could all have changed with LTE. I checked a couple of articles and found the following links which might help you. PLEASE NOTE these were published in March and May of 2012, so things might have changed with the new ipad 4. Also note that you can buy a cellular here without a contract that you could then set up with your own UK phone company.

You also said you wanted retina display and then said you were probably staying with 02. If by that you mean the ipad 2, I want to let you know that the ipad 2 does NOT have the retina display. That would mean you'd have to get the old discontinued 'new' ipad or the ipad 4. And if I were you, I would not even think of buying an old 'new ipad, even if there's a great sale on them. I'd go straight to the ipad 4.
Make sure you do as much research as possible.
Hope this helps.

  • Which iPad 4 should I buy if I live outside the US and I want wifi   Celullar

    I want to buy the new ipad from apple.com, i live outside the US, which carrier should i select to work celullar outside the us? or do i need to buy one factory unlocked?
    thx...

    Did you read the specs I linked to? All iPads have a sim card slot for local sim cards regardless of where worldwide. Again, a local carrier must offer local iPad data plans and a local sim card.
    The Verizon, etc. carrier designations only have significance in the USofA where two networks are avaialable, GSM and CDMA. In the USofA if you subscribe to a USofA carrier using CDMA then you must purchase the iPad designed to use CDMA. But again and per the specifications,  any post iPad2 iPad, GSM or CDMA will work worldwide on GSM networks.

  • I need to know if I buy an iPhone 5 or 5c in the US whether it will work in the UK with a PAYG sim

    I am currently living in the USA but will be moving back to the UK next year. I am not familiar with US phones or network providers. I have done a little research re CDMA / GSM  / frequencies etc but am just confused!!!
    I would like to buy my daughter an iPhone but would like her to be able to use it when we visit the UK on vacation or when we move back. Ideally I do not want to be tied to a contract here and would prefer PAYG but if thats not an option would possibly consider it.
    Is this going to be possible?
    If so What do I need to be looking out for?
    In the UK it is quite simple...I would just buy an unlocked phone or have one of the UK carriers unlock it for me and then just use overseas with a PAYG sim but are the phones here sim free?
    Please help.
    Many thanks
    Jo

    The answer is complicated. None of the major carriers offer PAYG service in the US, but if you buy a contract-free phone for full price you can get a plan that can be canceled at any time from any of the major carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile). There are smaller resellers that offer PAYG service (StraightTalk, for example), but they are hard to deal with.
    The most liberal is the GSM carrier T-Mobile. They have "unbundled" the phone from the service, so if you bring your own phone or pay full price for a phone the monthly cost will be lower.
    The other 3 will charge you the same monthly cost whether you pay full price for the phone or get a subsidized phone.
    Verizon iPhone 5 series phones are unlocked out of the box for international use (thanks to a condition the FCC imposed on Verizon when they were allowed to buy a substantial chunk of spectrum). They are the only phones sold in the US that will work on LTE bands in the UK and Europe.
    Sprint is not a good choice, because they give you a hard time if you want to unlock your phone.
    AT&T phones are locked, but they will unlock the phone if you pay full price or pay off your early termination fee. However, they will only work on GSM in the UK, not on LTE (4G).

  • Does anyone know if MOV or MP4 files from the JVC GY-HM150U will work with the Camera Connection Kit and then be readable by iMovie or similar apps?

    The JVC GY-HM150U camera and others in it's line say they offer recording in two different formats:
    Native .MOV format
    Fastest HD shoot to edit workflow. Edit immediately on Final Cut Pro™ or Premiere™ without conversion or transcoding
    Native .MP4(XDCAM-EX™) format
    Native File Recording
    Because it uses QuickTime™ as its native file format, the GY-HM150U is the perfect choice for users of Apple's Final Cut Pro™ editing system. Both HD and SD MOV files recorded by the camcorder can be dropped directly into Final Cut Pro™, keeping them first-generation and eliminating the time-consuming process of file conversion.For users of all major NLE systems, including solutions from Adobe, Avid, Grass Valley, Vegas and Apple, the GY-HM150U supports the MP4 file format, which can be brought into your editing system without re-encoding.

    and the files recorded to folders labeled "CQAV" (.MOV) or "BPAV" (.MP4), respectively, located in /PRIVATE/JVC/ off the root.
    So will the Camera Connection Kit see them properly and transfer them over to Photos, and then will iMovie be able to handle them? Or is the CCK restricted to only formats derived from DSLR cameras with "DCIM" folders, as I have heard?
    Any knowledge, especially first hand testing, would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks,
    David

    Excuse the late post but just wondering if you came up with a solution for this problem? I experienced the exact same issue but copying the movies from Aperture into iTunes (which worked) still didn't allow them to be played on the iPad. As they had played faultlessly when imported directly from the camera connection kit!

    Look, any officially unlocked GSM iPhone will work in India. You purchase from Dubai, no FaceTime, and Dubai is part of the UAE. You purchase anywhere but India, and you will have NO warranty or support. Frankly, doesn't make any sense to me why you want to do this...and don't bother telling me you save hundreds of dollars...still doesn't make any sense. Do a forum search here. We get posts daily, from users in India, who didn't purchase their iPhones in India...guess what? They all have problems. You want to join that bunch? It's your money, have at it.

  • Which refurbished iPhone should I buy to work with my iPad 3 wifi.  Will I need a personal hotspot?

    Which refurbished iPhone should I buy to work with my refurbished iPad 3 wifi?  Will I need a personal hotspot?

    I'm having the same problem.  The iPad has never roamed particularly well between access points, but under IOS6 it doesn't seem to roam at all, it simply sticks with the access point it first connected with.
    I don't have a solution for you, unfortunately.

  • Which macbook pro should i buy if i use finalcut7?the i5 or i7?

    which macbook pro should i buy if i use finalcut7?the i5 or i7?

    Either one will do the job.  The more powerful the CPU, the faster it will perform.  I suggest that if the budget is tight, go for the i5, if not go for what the bank account will allow.
    It is nice to have a fast CPU, but they are not essential to the overwhelming applications that most people use, especially in a non-vocational context.  On this forum there are the 'speed freaks' who will tout the virtues of faster CPUs, yet most have never compared two MBPs side by side and experienced the differences of real world results.
    Ciao.

  • Which NI devices should I buy and how to start with?

    Greetings!
    I am an undergraduate who is trying to design a control system which can measure chemical solution conductivity as well as PH value; besides, based on those values, we need to control 4 valves to open and close so that acid, base, water,and salt from 4 tanks can flow into the main pipe.
    Question: Which NI device should I buy and start with? The devices have to have at least 4 input/output, do you have any suggestion, Thank you very much!!
    I am also new to LabVIEW, so any extra suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you , we are considering purchasing NI USB-6008
    http://www.ni.com/products/usb-6008/
    Doest it work with the following PH sensor, one specification says that it has output voltage of Output 0-5 vdc, does NI USB-6008 accept it?
    Model A1004 pH Transmitter
    Warning
    Do not short the power connections. Wrong wiring of the signal and power wires will result in
    permanent damage to the unit instantly.
    Specs:
    Range 0-14pH
    Power: 12vdc 500ma nominal
    Output 0-5 vdc
    Material ABS
    Calibration trim pots
    Distance up to 50ft
    Model A1004 is a pH transmitter designed to be used with PLCs and microprocessors that accept
    analog input of 0-5vdc.
    Connect any general purpose pH sensor to the transmitter. Double junction sensor is preferred.
    Calibrate unit with 4 and 7 pH buffer solutions. Use zero trim pot to adjust 4pH and span trim pot to
    adjust 7pH..Fine tune adjustment is done with span trim pot.
    If you do not have a sensor , short the bnc connector ,this will simulate 7pH and observe output voltage
    of 2.5vdc.
    Din connector provides power and signal from one cable.
    Note.: When connecting signal and ground to the PLC input ,use .01uf capacitor across signal
    and ground to filter any noise issues.

  • Which macbook pro should I buy?? 13 or 15??

    I am planning to buy a macbook pro but I don't know which macbook pro I should buy.
    Games are not that important to me, however I play games such as call of duty, nba 2k, need for speed sometimes. Portability is important to me because it is compulsory for bringing laptops to school. I am confused on buying which macbook pro because the gpu of 13 is bad but 15 might be too big and heavy.
    So which macbook pro should I buy?

    Hi Lawrence,
    You've point out some of the important factors. For me, the choice would be easy. I'd gladly put up with a bit more bulk/weight to have a 15" display. ymmv

    You can copy the app to your computer's iTunes library by connecting the phone to it and doing File > Devices > Transfer Purchases - an actual backup (either on your computer's iTunes or to the cloud) doesn't contain the actual apps, just their content and settings, for a restore to work the app needs to be either in your computer's iTunes library (for and iTunes backup/restore) or still in the store (for an iCloud backup/restore). Or you could just sync the app from your computer's iTunes (which will only install the app, not any previous content)

  • Have family plan with 250 data which I almost use each month.  Going on vacation and will be on the road for two weeks.  Should I up my data for a month then change back.  Is it worth it or should I just run over and pay the extra 15 per gig?

    Hello mlazaretti. Vacation time is awesome. (Especially a road trip!) Since you will be going out for two weeks, you never know if having extra data may come in handy. I highly recommend switching to the next tier up so this way you have more data. This way it is only $10.00 more versus $15.00, and you dont have to worry about overages. Then change back at the start of the next billing cycle.
    If you need help making this change let us know! Have a safe trip!

    The creeps that generate this code figured that the iPhone since is is selling so well would be a great market for them even if iOS makes it impossible for their code to do anything practical unless it is jail broken first.
