Attention UK, France, Canada! Apple Confirms Unlocked SIM-Free iPhones
It's been a big day of clarification for Apple. From clearing up rumors about an Apple Store app release with an actual Apple Store application, to setting the record straight on SIM-free iPhones being unlocked, Apple fans are getting plenty of answers today - unless, of course, you want to know exactly when your white iPhone 4 will be ready
Today, Apple is confirming that the SIM-free iPhones sold in Canada, the United Kingdom, and France are, indeed, unlocked. Needless to say, these unlocked devices aren't locked in to any one provider - you know, like we're used to in the US. Available without contract and ready for use with any preferred carrier is a remarkably refreshing concept, isn't it?
When you purchase your iPhone from the Apple Online Store, you’ll get it commitment-free. So you can sign up for service with the carrier of your choice and change your carrier at any time.

That's actually not too bad... I expected factory unlocked iPhone 4 to be over $1,000 USD.

Is it somehow possible to order one from the US?

Love it..... EU competition law, i did chuckle when the EU said it wasnt legal to lock to one carrier
Shame you guys and gals cant order direct.... if you have anyone visiting the UK then get them to pick one up, post the packaging back and then fly home as if it was your own phone (3 or 4 and customs might get a bit sus)

So any SIM means normal SIMs also?

I love it, I live in Canada , so I can buy an Iphone 4 with contract , subsidised by carrier provider and yet internationally unlocked. Awesome.
Now, Americans will love Canadians more... they need our help..hahaha...LOL
We have four Canadians' providers that sells Iphones, it makes sense to have it internationally unlocked . They are Fido, Rogers (GSM only ), Telus and Bell ( Both CDMA and GSM )

Interesting.. I wonder if the providers will start unlocking other phones once off contract now too. Off to see Canadian availability!

For once I'm glad I live in Washington State. Closest Canadian Apple store is only 2 hours away!!! Is there a limit to how many iphones you can buy??

Unlocked will be nice if you can use the 3G radio for each carrier but I asume you can't..only use slow edge..not sure about other place but here in us we can only use t mobile but in edge so what's the point when your not using the phone at it's best to use it over 3G..I remember using t mo on edge and it slow..
This good for apple to make more money selling unlocked
