not sure whether its allowed or not but i have definitely seen guys update their fb via an iphone while out there the most recent being just a few hours ago. personally speaking i would leave the iphone at home and take an older ordinary ipod which aren't too expensive if you can get one cheap. that way if you break it you haven't lost anything of too much value.
iphone without a SIM is an iTouch, which are fine. All other nations use them with the SIM's in, but that would definitly contravene the UK policy.
Of course with iphone minus SIM you can still use skype when in a wifi zone.
thanks for help gents....
