French law lets customers opt for an unlocked iPhone. The phone will obviously be more expensive than the subsidized version (399 euros), but at least users won’t have to crack it every couple of weeks.
Amusingly enough, the unlocked iPhone is called “Naked iPhone” by Orange, meaning that it comes without a service contract. Orange has declined to mention the price of the unlocked version. French laws require that any phone sold with a service plan should also be made available without the plan.
