I do not believe that you can purchase an unlocked phone in the UK. You can in France, but to say that it's expensive would be an understatement.
The other option is to buy one in the UK, Jailbreak it (hack to add software) and then unlock it, BUT, I am not sure that you can do that with a 1.1.2 out of the box phone.
I am pretty sure that it's like over here. You can walk in a buy the phone without setting up a contract.

Yep - the guys are right. As for activating the phone you get sent away with it to do at home. I believe they set your account up there in the store though if they can.

You can always get one from the Apple store http://store.apple.com/Apple/WebObjects/ukstore/. That will arrive in a couple of days and the rest is left up to you.
