    Hi, I am in Asia and I am not able to purchase an iPhone 6+ here, there are a lot of people here doing business on such cool stuff. I have experience buying from the US and I'd like to know if there is any unlocked version (without contract ) iPhone selling in Apple US store and if they will ship to Asian countries Thanks

    The T-Mobile one is unlocked.

    I have no idea about shipping to Asia, i doubt it though. Maybe talk to Apple?

    So is the Verizon version.

    Plus it works on Verizon and GSM carriers, unlike the T-mobile version.

    Apple online store uses country-specific billing and shipping address forms. So the US online store requires an American state and zip code, the Canadian one requires a Canadian province and postal code, etc.

    Only way is through eBay or a friend/relative living in the country you want to buy from.

    Yes, no problem I have a trusted assist buying helper in California, but now my concern is which one is contract-free and unlocked? My area is covered with 3G and 4G service. And how long will it take before Apple shipping out the iPhone, I will probably want a 6 PLUS?? What is the approx. local shipping cost to California

    The website states 3-4 weeks. But... will it be faster ? Does anyone have any real experience?

    From their website, all 6 Plus models are showing 3-4 weeks shipping time. The T-Mobile model is the only one sold on their website contract-free and unlocked. Shipping is free

    So what carriers does the T-Mobile one work for? T-Mobile, AT&T and who else?
