The phone will be shipped and used overseas, so I hope it really is unlocked as you guys say !!
It is. I bought my 5S this way last year.
What are the contract free prices for the various models of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus? Thanks!
Add $450 to the contract price.
6 - $649/$749/$849
6+ - $749/$849/$949
Contract free but is it unlocked?
Everyone who bought the 5S this way last year says so ... I will post back here to confirm the result in a few weeks (I hope it is unlocked really).
I read that the T-Mobile version only works on T-Mobile, but the Verizon version is unlocked and will work with other carriers including T-Mobile.
Apparently they say if you buy it directly from the apple site then it is unlocked. I don't know why they aren't backing me up here but used to bombard me thread with proof that it's unlocked yesterday !
I guess no matter what anyone says, the proof will be in the pudding - just wait until you receive it. You'll find out then.
I also heard that it's locked if you buy it on the t-mo site and unlocked at apple, yet I've read some reports that its locked even on the apple site.
I think regardless of history, the only way you're going to know for sure is to see yourself.
It is unlocked and will work with any GSM carrier.
That's true. Even if it was unlocked last year, there are no guarantees it will be the same case this year.
Well it's a risky purchase. I guess I'll have to purchase an unlock if it all went to ****.
That's what I'm betting on !!
I'm in the "who knows" camp here.
Look at this thread.
Do confirm if you find anything knew about this
I just bought a 6 Contract free T-mobile from Apple.com - Really hope it's unlocked
I'm planning on popping my straight talk At&t sim in there the moment I get it
Haha welcome to the club.
I just emailed Tim Cook asking him
They can't charge full price and have it locked to a carrier. T-Mobile ONLY locks its iPhones if you get one on an EIP plan.
I too am hoping for the capability to use on the Verizon network... I have seen many different answers on this forum and even websites..
"This also means that iPhones sold by AT&T and T-Mobile can also be unlocked and brought over to Verizon and get the full range of service now."
Verizon tech support states that they can give no guarantees but gave the impression that it would work.
Time will tell.
Please do keep us posted. I too bought the tmobile contract free version to use it in Argentina and I won't be able to test it until October 19th when I get back from my trip - yeah, one month after...I will probably die meanwhile.
wait, if I pop in my argentinian sim card while in the US, will that tell me anything whether it is unlocked or not?
Hahahaha hang on there !! Lots of peeps say that they got the 5S unlocked last year, hopefully it's the same this year.
Not true based on history unless there's been a recent change. I bought a full-price iPhone 5S last year from the T-Mobile store and it was locked to T-Mobile. They will unlock it for you but you have to have service with them for at least 45 days before they'll unlock it.
My suggestion is to avoid the T-Mobile store if you're hoping for an unlocked iPhone you can use on AT&T or overseas. The contract free ones from Apple direct will be unlocked.
Does the t mobile full price direct from apple.com have NFC?
