Could anyone please tell me if the nevelocked iPhones went on sale in the Apple Store's?
You mean the factory unlocked iPhone? If you're in the US, then no. You'll have to wait about a month or so. I think there is a thread somewhere that says the same thing about Canada apple store as well.
Hmmm I remember reading that last year the neverlocked iPhone 4S was available from the first day in store
Not in the USA. It was a good month or so before you could buy a factory unlocked phone.
Call an Apple store and ask. I doubt they're selling them unlocked yet tho since I haven't heard anything about it.
You can always buy a locked one without a contract and then buy an IMEI unlock on eBay for <$10. Same thing.
You can buy them unlocked from day 1 in Canadian Apple store.
Or you can buy the verizon iPhone 5 full price its completely unlocked just no LTE for AT&T
I bought a full price iPhone 5 at an apple store popped my t-mobile sim and worked. The phone will only be locked if you get the phone subsidized.
Neverlocked. Ha! I'm going to start using that term from now on.
Is this like Nevernude?
Have you tried actually looking for yourself?
I would, but I'm in Europe and I have a friend that could buy me one from there.
So they are sold in apple stores without contract now? Is it the same price like the 4S was? 650$ for the 16GB version?
We call them neverlocked over here (I didn't invent the term) to differentiate them from the ones which were initially locked to a carrier and then unlocked using software or a sim unlock.
4/4S were $699 plus tax! The 5 is now at $649 plus tax. Apple drop $51 from last year!
Nope, 4/4S were $649. All were a $450 premium over contract price.
And your facts are? I know 4/4S cost $649 plus tax because I bought them both at retail on lunch day when I was working at Apple! I still have the receipt too!
how did u get it?
How did you get the iphone? You get the full price from ATT/VERIZON?
I'll be visiting the US soon and I want to buy the iphone 5 as soon as I arrived.
I lined up at an apple store last Friday for about 2hours and bought the AT&T version at full price
my friend checked at an apple store and they aren't selling them without a contract yet...
they are selling them at bestbuy though - but for $699 + taxes
Unfortunately not true. Only on apple.ca.
i think i just blue myself
Erm, nope? I know people who have bought unlocked iPhone 5's from the local Apple store (Newmarket).
Really I have been to Sherway Gardens, Square one, and the Eatons Center stores all of which directed me to apple.ca and told me not to hold my breathe.
Hrm. Asked for a Device Only purchase?
yup. I tend to travel internationally for an extended periods of time, so i cant do contracts.
mind you I received my iPhone5 yesterday with only a 20 day wait, which was still shorter then the 3-4 weeks quoted. So i really can not complain.
Ahhh. Weird, I know a few people who have picked them up asking device only. Maybe out of stock?
