Apple has decided to see reason and start selling unlocked iPhones in the U.S. What this means is that the user can now decide which carrier they would like to go with instead of being strong armed into one particular deal. Finally.
The SF Chronicle reports that, “The unlocked iPhone 4s are listed Tuesday on Apple Inc.’s website for $649 and $749. They’re identical to the version sold for use on AT&T Inc.’s network, but don’t require a two-year contract.”
But of course there’s a catch – and a big one. “Apart from AT&T, the only national U.S. carrier that’s compatible with the phone is T-Mobile USA, and it can provide only phone calls and low data speeds.”
So, really, you’re kind of screwed either way.
