    I plan to preorder the iPhone 8 tomorrow and plan to buy it unlocked for AT&T. Is it better to buy unlocked from AT&T or is it better to buy the SIM free version? I read that the iPhone only works on AT&T and T-Mobile when selecting the AT&T version vs the SIM free version.

    If i choose the SIM free version, can i just put in the SIM card from my current iPhone 7 or will i have to get a new one from AT&T?

    Does apple not allow to buy the iPhone X without carries? I don't see an option on their site.

    Not yet. Probably long time after launch will see. Especially with production issues

    If you paying in full, you might as well just get the sim-free model. And yes you can just insert the sim from your current iPhone 7 and will work just fine.
