If you dont get one factory unlocked, can use RSIM iccid trick to force an unlock.. thats the route some slickdealers are ready to go or might be able to just use it on T-Mobile if you are on T-Mobile since Simple Mobile is an MVNO of them Dont quote me, but if I were in the market and tight on funds I would strongly consider this one. At the same time- I also have no skin in the game, so if you dont think its a great deal or worth the risk, I respect that too... completely.
