I'm sorry if this has been asked already, but it's not immediately clear from thread titles. I know that Verizon phones are GSM unlocked - that'd be great if I wasn't already on contract with AT&T (I'm using an unlocked 4S I brought with me from Europe). I've heard that GSM iPhone 5's can be bought in store as 'device only' for full price, and that they're factory unlocked. However, I asked an Apple chat specialist about the process for obtaining one now that the reservation process is in place (with no option for device only) and she told me that Apple does not sell a fully unlocked phone and that I will NOT be able to obtain one in store. Is she misinformed, or am I? I understand I'll have to wait in line if I want one - that's fine, but I don't want to wait if it's not possible to get one. Cheers!
