Can I recharge it by plugging it into the USB port of a netbook
Yes. Make sure the netbook is plugged in and not running on battery.iMac 2.66Ghz, 2.4Ghz MacBook Pro, iPhone 3G, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

Currently Being ModeratedAug 16, 2009 12:20 PM (in response to danielth)In the United States (we make up a small part of the market here :)), voltage is 110/60 Hz. You guys use I believe 220/50 Hz, hence the question as to whether the iPhone electronics are smart enough to work in either environment.
Thanks for the other suggestions, I appreciate it, but as I said in my OP, I've already changed my plans to accommodate the trip. I'll have International roaming during the trip and a data plan that will allow Internet usage (so I can still get my email pushed and use other web services) on the trip.
Thanks for the responses.PC, iPhone OS 3.0.1, Windows Vista-64
Currently Being ModeratedAug 16, 2009 2:40 PM (in response to BobPerez)I've got a US iPhone 3G in the UK right now and it works fine with a simple plug adapter.
To check for yourself, every power brick I've ever seen says on it what the acceptable voltage range is. My iPhone power brick (block rather, it's actually quite small) says 110 - 240, and so does my laptop adapter.
Although you've added an international roaming package, these are not unlimited so you'll probably want to reset your data transfer statistics in the Settings > General > Info page so you can keep track of how much you've used and don't hit the insane overage rates.Macbook Pro C2D, Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 17, 2009 6:46 AM (in response to Charles Conway)Does the mapping/GPS on US phone work in UK? I'm debating about taking mine over when I go to visit Mum but not sure if I will get enough functionality to make it worth the $$. I might just hire a phone while I'm there and bring my laptop and look for wifi for when I need it. I'll be in Kent and I'm not sure what sort of coverage I'll get, either.MBP, Mac OS X (10.5.5), iphone 3GS 16

230-240 is standard accross the world.. everyone knows that..
The largest economy in the world (the United States) is 120 VAC 60Hz.
The second-largest economy in the world (Japan) is 100 Volts. (50 Hertz in Eastern Japan) (60 Hertz in Western Japan).
