Is there a place in the US which can collect my item and ship it to me?

I want to order an iPhone in the USA because it's way cheaper than in the UK. Only thing is that in order for it to be shipped to the UK, I have to pay the UK price. Is there a place in the USA where I can get the iPhone shipped to them. I will then pay them a fee and the cost of the shipping and they ship the iPhone to me?

There are but it's a stupid idea. If/when the phone goes wrong you have no UK Sale of Goods Act protection and the Applecare warranty won't apply here unless you present the phone as a visiting US resident with a US-purchased phone.

Also, many of the cheap deals you see are for subsidised phones on a contract, so those ones really aren't as cheap as they seem as the contract payments hide the remaining cost of the phone.
