Apple begins selling unlocked iPhone 4 in U.S. Apple has now begun selling unlocked GSM iPhone 4s online.
In the States, the phone will work on AT&T and T-Mobile and on any GSM network around the world.

The phone is on sale for $649 for the 16GB model or $749 for the larger 32GB model, in white and black, and without contract.

While the phone does work for T-Mobile USA there is very little point as you can only connect to EDGE (2G) speeds and not 3G or T-Mobile's HSPA+ (4G).

Apple confirms that the unlocked model can do everything a non-unlocked version can, with no restrictions.

Looks like all those people on eBay selling these for $850+ are about to take a major hit.

Spending $649 (minimum) on a brand-new iPhone 4 a few months before a new model replaces it, is a big mistake.

Agree, iphone is really overpriced, <a href="chinexport.xooit.com">china</a> copy are 10 times cheaper. I can agree that apple software is better but it doesnt justify the price gap.

GOOD!

Ebay rapers should be punished for being mindlessly and meritlessly capitalistic.

As for 649 and 749.........WTF?? It does NOT cost 100 hundred dollars for a 16Gb flash upgrade. We all can buy a micro SDHC for 35 bucks for a 16Gb.

And I couldn't agree more with Harhumph! 750 for a crappy assed phone that prides itself on being state-of-the-art yet falls way behind with current cellular data speeds. F Apple and may Jobs have another heart attack and not survive this one!
