    Microsoft has recently released it's Zune HD, and I REALLY want one. Only problem is they have no plans to release it in the UK. Does anyone know how I could get around this?

    Buy it from Amazon.com, or on eBay, but you'd have to find someone who would post it to the UK.

    They post it to the UK themselves

    But sometimes international sellers specify where they 'ship' to, like worldwide, or just the US, or Europe.

    The postage is pretty hefty for most of them though...

    Yes, amazon.com might be your best bet. Have you checked thenerdsnet.com? Oh and amazon i dont think ships to UK. I have had so many issues while living abroad but I had read a bunch of posts on this forum about a parcel forwarding company called shipito. I bought my stuff online and had them ship it to me. They were resonablly cheaper than the rest.

    I know this might sound like a stupid question but when it involves $360 (which is the best internation shipping price i've found on ebay ) it's worth asking..Will it work normally? Are there any restrictions or locks that'll stop it from working normally when not in the US?

    I wouldn't buy it internationally from ebay tbh.

    No idea about locks or anything. I don't think there is, just MS haven't made the effort to release and market it internationally (strange from such a large multi-national company).
