    "Sim free" no

    T-Mobile versions which come unlocked and you can pay full price for... Yes!

    The difference between the two isn't really anything. But Apple usually doesn't sell "sim free" models until a couple of weeks in.

    Ya know I'm totally not sure! I do know that buying any model outright makes it come unlocked. Last year I purchased a sprint 7 Plus and popped my ATT sim right in.

    AT&T and T-Mobile iPhone 8 models lack CDMA capability (i.e. intel modem because Qualcomm patent licensing dispute with Apple). The Verizon/Sprint model iPhone will be closest to SIM free.

    The sim free version was on the website prior to it going down. So it should be available for preorder.

    Sim free model is available for pre-order this year.
