My boss decided to go back to england and I may be deciding to move there as well.. questions..

I never been there... after watching train spotting, I dont think I wanna go.. just kidding

Phone, does US phone work there ? ie can I plug in a phone I own here ? or are they on different signals

Computers, should I keep these or get what they have there ? besides power differences..

Also I think they dont use the 3 pong power plug right ?

Anything I need to know ?

they do use a different power voltage and plug. you will have to get converters for that. i forget what the terminology is. and the only other tip i can give you is stay AWAY from liverpool. it is a dump.

Trainspotting was Scotland.

Are you planning on moving for good? WHy are you following your boss? Same company? If you are trying to move there for good you have bigger things to worry about than your phone!

hmm

England always seemed like a fun place. But you will either need a converter for the voltage or a new system

Damn, that must be one hell of a company if you're willing to move to another country for it.

English people are often unintentionally insulting, they're also pretty hyper. :) But England is a high energy, exciting place, just don't take some peoples attitudes and offhand comments personally.

The women love American men though, expect them to be all over you. I had like 4 of my cousins friends after me when I was in England it was pretty bizarre as that never happens in America.

Hardly - any country filled with men who wear skirts is suspect in my book.
