Unlocked iPhone 4 Now Available via Apple Store

Apple is now offering unlocked iPhone 4s for purchase at its online store in all of the model’s incarnations—black, white, 16GB, 32GB. 

The price tag is a bit steep—starting at $649 and $749 for more storage—but the freedom of not having to sign away a fresh two years to Verizon or AT&T is definitely welcome. Though there is the other minor hang-up: the unlocked phone will only work with a GSM carrier. For the record, AT&T and T-Mobile are the only major GSM carriers in America—smaller ones include TracFone Wireless—but outside of the States, many carriers are GSM-based. Therefore, you can use your unlocked iPhone around the world without running up your AT&T bill, simply by slotting in new MicroSIM cards for every country or region.
