    Wrong. It is NOT the same. Completely different bands.

    Don't assume that this year is the same as last year. This year, Verizon and Sprint, but not at&t or T-Mobile, are "world iPhones."

    Best poll ever. There's no wrong answer and no right answer

    At first glance I thought it had to be the first one, but now i'm not so sure maybe it really is the second one.

    I think I'll go with the third one.

    Available from launch in the UK (he says typing on his sim free iPhone 7+ 128gb black).
    I wonder why they don't do that in the US.

    Historically, 99.99% of people bought cell phones on carrier-subsidized, two-year contracts. They now do payment plans, but it's essentially the same thing. Since 99.99% of US customers still get their phone through a carrier or seemingly tied to a carrier, Apple funnels all their early production to there. When they catch up to the demand, then they can sell SIM-free ones.

    How are you going to buy a sim-free model when you live outside the US? Do you plan on visiting US or hoping that by the time you visit the US that the Sim-free model will be available?

    If you get the sprint or Verizon version and pop out the sim, it's essentially sim free

    Ironically enough SE sim free version doesn't work in Asia and they'd have to buy the sprint one and pop out the sim.

    Most countries in Europe have GSM. In the US Verizon (and I believe sprint ) are CDMA. They do not mix. You need the right technology for your carrier.

    Apple will sell an unlocked carrier free phone later on after the initial release sales. They will have both versions. CDMA and GSM. (if the CDMA is sim free I don't know. I do see that someone mentioned that you can remove the sim)

    As to when, I personally have never known Apple to release a date on the unlocked phones but they could.

    FYI if you buy an iPhone outright in full you do get an unlocked phone the same as they will sell later. I did this with my 6s plus

    You believe wrong.

    See model numbers in attached file.

    See both cdma and gsm.

    See sprint and Verizon on the right hand side for corresponding carriers.

    The Verizon and Sprint iPhone 7/7+ models work on both CDMA and GSM.
