    Hi guys,

    I just purchased a Verizon Iphone 7 without contract. It came with a Verizon sim, but I am not a Verizon customer.

    I have tried using it with my other SIM cards, Canadian and Chinese. Voice and 4G worked fine, as far as I could tell.

    Since I didn't buy it with a contract, this is supposedly a unlocked phone right? Is there any difference at all between this and the sim-free versions that will come out much later? Is there any reason I should wait for the SIM-free one?



    Thanks!

    Yes it is unlocked. No idea about what the difference in the SIM-free ones will be since they released two different versions this year (one with CDMA -- Sprint/Verizon) and one without (AT&T/T-Mobile), if it will have both radios, or just GSM.

    radio/chip, whatever they call it. One phone (Verizon/sprint) supports CDMA and GSM, the other does not (T-Mobile/ATT). No idea if the sim free version will support both CDMA and GSM, or if it will support just one of the two.
