Apple Begins Selling Unlocked iPhone 4
If you were tired of getting your unlocked iPhones from that creepy guy who works the door for bar down the street, today is your lucky day. Apple has started selling official unlocked iPhone 4s, albeit for the hefty prices of $649 for the 16 GB model and $749 for the 32 GB model. The unlocked iPhone 4 can be used on any carrier around the world that supports a GSM network, so it would seem Verizon still holds the market hostage on CDMA iPhones. One will simply have to install and activate a micro-SIM card from a carrier of their choice to activate the phone. Generally, the point of an unlocked phone is to get a carrier-exclusive phone onto a different carrier, but in this case, another viable reason to purchase the unlocked phone would be to avoid committing to a multiyear contract, or to use an obscure local carrier.
