Sprint does not do unlocked microSIM iPhone 4S
Sprint might have a “can do” attitude overall, but there’s one boundary that they won’t overstep – that is, to sell the iPhone 4S with an unlocked microSIM card slot. Basically, Sprint customers who purchase the iPhone 4S are now able to roam worldwide on GSM networks, but they are unable to purchase a handset with unlocked microSIM slots, according to a Sprint representative. Guess that bursts the bubble of […]

Unlocked Nokia N900 going for $369.99
The Nokia N900 is one of the more hackable smartphones out there in the market, but it has hardly reached near any iPhone sales figures simply because we believe it is too expensive for the masses and lack the sex appeal of Apple’s product. Things might change for a bit though, since it will retail for $369.99 a pop unlocked, making it perfect for those who want to pick up […]

The WSJ says that despite using Android, the […]
