Unlocked & Contract free iPhone 4S goes Public
If you are one of those die hard iPhone fan & eagerly waiting for iPhone 4S but don’t want yourself to be tide down by two year contract, this is for you. Finally apple started selling officially unlocked & contract free iPhone 4S.
Unfortunately, Apple is selling only the GSM model of their unlocked iPhone 4S which means if you are from another country & you want to use iPhone 4S with your very own GSM network such as AT&T, you are ready to roll. However, in terms of internet connectivity most probably you would be limited by 2G/EDGE data speed even though it entirely depends on your network.
We are still not quite sure about CDMA model. Apple mentioned carefully on their website that “CDMA available only if iPhone 4S is sold and activated for use on a CDMA network” which could mean that if your cell phone network is based on CDMA technology, it must be activated through your operator. It’s important to note that Apple started shipping unlocked version of iPhone 4S to some Asian & European countries since late October.
You can place an direct order from Apple’s website, but you must keep it in mind that Apple won’t be shipping these iPhones with any micro-SIM card which means if your network operator doesn’t support micro-SIM card yet, you must manually cut the sim card at micro-SIM card size to use it with your iPhone 4S. It’s entirely your responsibility to convert your regular SIM card to a micro-SIM card.
However, you won’t get your hands on an unlocked iPhone 4S so easily. It comes at a healthy price tag. Initially, there are three different model of 16, 32 & 64GB which is available both in Black & white color.
So, what do you think? Are you going to get your’s iPhone 4S? Let us know.
