    it depends if you buy the phone unlocked online, if you buy directly through apple then you will have to get it unlocked. as of now you will need to get it unlocked to use on the vodafone network. unless apple already made a deal with vodafone.

    Apple's iphone is having a deal in India with vodaphone, but i am not sure if they have a deal in Uk. You need to unlock the phone, if you buy it direct from apple's online store.
