Starting today Apple is selling unlocked iPhone 4S’s via their online U.S. store. Shipping time is estimated at one to two weeks.
The prices for the unlocked, contract-free iPhone 4S is $649 – 16GB, $749 – 32 GB and $849 – 64 GB. It’s important to note that the unlocked device is only compatible with GSM networks such as AT&T. You can’t use Verizon Wireless or Sprint as they are CDMA-based carriers.
The neat part is if you travel outside of the U.S. you can purchase a micro-SIM card from a local carrier and you won’t get dinged with all the roaming and long distance charges. One poster on MacRumors posted the following rates:
- In Canada $10 will get you 125 MB of data for a week with unlimited evening calls.
- In Singapore $20 will get you unlimited incoming calls for 30 days.
- In Hong Kong $12 will get you unlimited data for 3 – 4 days.
- In Macau $12 will get you unlimited data for 4 days.
- In Bali $10 will get you a hefty amount of data
- In China $30 will get you 600 MB and unlimited incoming calls that lasts about a month.
