Starting today, Apple has begun accepting pre-orders for unlocked iPhone 4S in the US Online Apple Store for which you pay more upfront without locking yourself in a particular carrier contract for the next two years. The preorders list a 1 to 2-week shipping time and are available for $649, $749 and $849 for the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB model respectively, in both white and black color scheme.
The unlocked iPhone includes all the features of iPhone but without a contract commitment. You can activate and use it on the supported GSM wireless network of your choice, such as AT&T in the United States.* The unlocked iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S will not work with CDMA-based carriers such as Verizon Wireless or Sprint.
Frequent business travelers who are hopping between countries, or those who don’t want to be locked into a lengthy carrier contract can proceed and pre-order to buy the unlocked iPhone 4S. The unlocked version of iPhone 4S will not work on either Sprint or Verizon’s network since both of them uses the CDMA network.
I have already pre-ordered and the confirmation email is showing a delivery date of between November 28 – December 5. What about yours?
