    Hey guys, I currently live in SF but will soon be heading back to the UK. I'd like to buy a 7 to replace my 5, but obviously need it to work on home soil. Just wondering which one I should buy to guarantee this, as Apple don't seem to offer an unlocked phone on their site?! I'm heading up to Portland this weekend so I'll try preorder one for pickup!

    I think I read that T-Mobile iphone are unlocked? also it's a GSM model (U.K doesn't have CDMA).

    Yes they are unlocked. So this should work no problem? And will also take my AT&T SIM card over here? Bingo!

    So is the AT&T not unlocked? I'm confused.
