    Hey

    I live in Finland, and i'm thinking about buying an iPhone 6 from Dubai, when I go there for holiday. My question is, that will the unlocked iPhone 6 work in Finland? Also, it says that it is a GSM phone, does that mean that it will only work on 2G?

    Thanks

    Look up what model is offered as the unlocked version in Dubai. Should be visible in the technical specs when you shop the Dubai online Apple store.
    Compare to the model offered by Finnish carriers.

    See https://www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/

    DU United Arab Emirates - Locked
    UAE Du < Unlocked.

    Check their carrier carefully before you purchase. That thing people call Next Tether Policy or Carrier.
    I hope that help.

    Unlocked?

    It says unlocked on the page, what does that mean? And when you click 'Learn more about the Unlocked iPhone', it says that you can use it on any GSM carrier. What does that mean? Also, when I checked which model it is, it said this under mobile and wireless:
    Model A1586 (GSM)*
    Model A1524 (GSM)*
    UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)
    TD-SCDMA 1900 (F), 2000 (A)
    GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29)
    TD-LTE (Bands 38, 39, 40, 41)
    All models
    802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi‑Fi
    Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology
    NFC

    Im not very good at this, so if someone would be so kind as to translate this to me. I just want to be sure before I make my purchase.
