I have an iPhone 3G and a 4, and I'm thinking of trading up my iPhone 4 in the Dominican Republic for a 4S. In the Dominican Republic, the iPhones are reprogrammed Mexican versions to work on our networks (Orange, Claro and Viva). I'm buying my 4S from either the UK or Spain because it's cheaper and they're already SIM unlocked by default so I don't have to go through any ultrasn0w unlock or mess with AT&T. I have an iPhone 3G and a 4 from England and they're fine, except my 3G was SIM locked to O2 until I did ultrasn0w. My iPhone 4's been fine, but I'm wondering if it's anything different from the 4 to the 4S. Since the 4S can use HSPA+, I'm wondering if it's in use in England or in Spain so it can be compatible with Orange Dominicana's bands so I can use "4G" or at least 3G like I've been using on my 4.

Cheaper in England? You have got to be kidding! All digital sales of American digital products seem to use a $1=Â£1 exchange rate effectively adding a minimum 50% premium. We'd kill to be able to buy at American prices.
