Are T-Mobile iPhones purchased from the Apple Store Unlocked?

    Title says it all. I'm asking because it's the same price to buy the unlocked iPhone as it is to buy the T-Mobile iPhone, and they're both grouped under the same banner of "Unlocked and Contract Free" (as you can see in the attached screenshot it's somewhat confusing). I just wanted to make sure that the T-Mobile phone is actually unlocked (if it is, I figured I might as well order that one, just in case I want to use it on T-Mobile in the future I wouldn't have to buy the SIM kit later). Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Yes, they're exactly the same, except one comes with a T-Mobile SIM, which you can discard if you don't need it.

    Or you can just buy the sim free version and ask apple rep for a t-mobile sim. They will just give you one. This way you know it's unlocked.
