Online Apple Store Now Selling Unlocked GSM iPhone 4
Sometimes, good things come early.
On Monday, reported that rumors and rumblings from around the Apple world suggested the company would begin selling unlocked iPhone 4's beginning Wednesday. As it turned out, however, Apple pulled the trigger even sooner than anyone expected, making the unlocked GSM iPhone 4 available early this morning through the company's online store.
This reality comes just hours after one of Twitter's most reliable Apple tipsters, @Chronic dished that "unlocked iPhones headed to Apple Stores for Wednesday: MC603 (16GB, Black) MC604 (16GB, White) MC605 (32GB, Black) MC606 (32GB, White)." The 16GB and 32GB versions are now available on the Apple store's online website for $649 and $749, respectively. No international shipping is currently offered.
"If you donít want a multiyear service contract or if you prefer to use a local carrier when traveling abroad," Apple says, "the unlocked iPhone 4 is the best choice. It arrives without a micro-SIM card, so youíll need an active micro-SIM card from any supported GSM carrier worldwide."
Although this marks the first time Apple has made unlocked iPhones available in the US, it's old hat in Europe, where Apple has been selling unlocked iPhones for quite some. One year ago, Apple made some progress toward today's new reality by starting to sell iPhones at list price, although they weren't unlocked.

So do you think there is any possibility of getting your locked iPhone unlocked for maybe 100 bucks?

Couldn't you just jailbreak and unlock yourself for free? Or am I missing something

With unlocked iPhones and IOS 5 stealing all the jailbreak apps ideas, whats the need in jailbreaking anymore? Apple finally gives in eh?

Still need the jailbreak for themes, some tweaks, and root access but the list of reasons in getting shorter and shorter

Typical chronic - wrong as usual.
He said Wednesday.....
It's a welcome move but within the USA there is no other GSM carrier that it can be used on that has a compatable 3G service. It will be better when AT&T can start offering an unlock service which might follow.
