This morning we told you about the China iPhone grey market where iPhone 4s would be purchased in New York and shipped back to China only to get sold at higher prices. Well, according to Cult of Mac the same is happening in Britain. People are lining up early in the morning to purchase unlocked iPhone 4s to only sell them back to the place they were made, China.

To express how long these lines are, the picture above is not from launch day but from a couple days ago. Also, what about all the time and energy these line waiters are spending? The shipping costs? They must be spending a ton to get these things back to the place they were born.
