Is the US the only country that has carrier restrictions on Apple.com pre-orders?

    Just what the title says. I know in Australia Apple.com sells sim-free, unlocked and that's it. I've heard multiple people from around Europe mention that they don't have to select any carrier information what they pre-order, everything is sold unlocked and sim-free.

    The US needs to get with it and get rid of these ridiculous carrier restrictions. We should be able to pre-order sim-free, unlocked iPhones with full CDMA and GSM support from day 1 just like everyone else.

    Canada is the same as Australia, Apple only sells phones purely outright and unlocked on the website.

    So I want to know why in the world the US doesn't do this.
