    I'm seeing posts here that T-mobile's model is NOT unlocked.

    These are false, the T mobile version is fully unlocked and this has been confirmed

    Really ? Where you got this info ? Unlocked when buy at Apple or T Mobile ?
    Buy at Apple : 100% unlocked
    Buy at T Mobile : 100% locked

    T-Mobile full priced from Apple online or retail store = Unlocked
    AT&T full priced from Apple online or retail store = Unlocked
    Verizon from Apple online or retail store = GSM unlocked for international.

    T-Mobile full priced from T-Mobile store is locked to T-Mobile. You have have to request T-Mobile to unlock it for you.

    Partly true.

    Buy directly from Apple, the t mob version should be unlocked.

    Buy from t mob store, locked initially but can be unlocked after certain conditions are met.
