    It's about time they did that for the U.S. I'll be getting the 8 Plus instead.

    I think that I will be ordering one 8+ and may wind up getting an X...really just depends on the carrier offerings.

    It's probably 2013 all over again. 5c sim free was available at launch. 5s was not.

    Just check the Apple Store app, looks like that will be the case. Nice I know, I’m on the fence about pre-ordering or waiting to check it out in-stores.

    X doesn't have a sim free option online yet. Looking like it's to entice some people to buy an 8/8 Plus.

    Check again because it's there. Select "buy a new iPhone on an existing wireless account" once you press that you'll see the 4 major carriers along with "Sim Free".

    I see it as an option for the plus.

    It's not available for the X but for the 8 it is.

    That would be great, especially since it would avoid the stupid "upgrade fee" that AT&T and Verizon charge when you buy via the carrier program ...

    They'll be begging people to buy the 8 since so many will wait for the X.

    Why is anyone surprised that the ip8/+ offers the sim-free and it's not offered for the ipX?

    Apple wants to sell as many ip8/+ as they can. This is just another push in that direction.

    They know/hope that the ipX will sell because for the redesign and the features.

    Sad that store pickup isn’t available today, and hasn’t been an option all week :(

    If you want the phone with all the radios you’ll need to temporarily port to Verizon unless they allow sim free at launch but it does not look like they are doing to do they yet.
