    Planning to buy a white 4s 64gb factory unlocked.

    Should I or just wait for a jailbreak and unlock solution? :p

    If I do decide later go to Sprint, then this 4s factory unlocked will not work :(

    Thanks

    Yes, its factory unlocked for any GSM network.
    Not CDMA such as Sprint or Verizon.

    1. There's no such device as an iPhone4gs.

    2. I'm not sure what you mean by the 'stick out tongue' icon, but if you want an unlocked phone, by it factory unlocked. This question gets asked so much the answer should be a forum sticky.

    3. I thought all iPhone4s CDMA phones also had the GSM sim slot. Maybe not.

    4. Like every cell phone purchase, buy the phone for the network that best serves where you spend most of your time and where you get the best signal.

    5. If all local networks are the same, the next deciding factor should be if you want to use it overseas. If so, get GSM.

    this is from Apples site I think it answers it all.. Sometimes looking there is the easiest way to get info.

    The unlocked iPhone works only on supported GSM networks, such as AT&T in the U.S. When you travel internationally, you can also use a micro-SIM card from a local GSM carrier. The unlocked iPhone will not work with CDMA carriers such as Verizon Wireless or Sprint

    There is a thread in this forum showing you on how to activate this factory unlock phone with T-Mobile. If you follow it correctly, it works flawless including MMS.

    I bought my iPhone 4 factory unlocked and I'm truly happy with that decision. I was tired of always running around trying to get it unlocked using exploits. This way I only have to be concerned with Jailbreak not preserving basebands and such.
