If the idea of being tied down to a carrier for two years just for the iPhone 4S isn’t your cup of tea, we’ve got some good news for you. You no longer have to travel out of the country or get an unlocked iPhone 4S shipped to you internationally. Starting today, Apple will be offering the iPhone 4S for sale – unlocked and without a contract – from its online store.
Unfortunately it’ll only work with GSM networks, so if you were planning to use it on Sprint/Verizon – tough luck. However these unlocked phones will support any micro SIM card from the get go, so you’ll be able to use them internationally right away, without having to be a “good customer” with your carrier before they unlock it.
The unlocked iPhone 4S will be available in black or white, in 16GB ($649), 32GB ($749) and 64GB ($849) variants. Anybody planning to pick up one of these? Remember to read our iPhone 4S review if you’re still on the fence about getting the iPhone 4S.
