Apple surprised us all early this morning as the online Apple Store started displaying the unlocked iPhone 4. There was a strong rumor last weekend that Apple is about to do this, but nobody expected it this soon.
Both the white and black models of the iPhone 4 are available in 16GB and 32GB versions. Both iPhone 4 units are available without contract from AT&T or Verizon. This also means these units can be used worldwide. The 16GB iPhone 4 gets a $649 price tag while the 32GB iPhone 4 is being sold for $749. Apple promises to deliver the black, unlocked iPhone 4 in 1-3 business days, while the white iPhone 4 can be shipped in 3-5 days.
As with the previous unlocked versions of the iPhone which were released in several countries, the U.S. unlocked iPhone 4 also requires a micro-SIM from a supported carrier. This includes SIM cards from AT&T and T-Mobile.
So, if you’ve been wanting to own the iPhone 4 but didn’t want to get tied up under a two-year contract with either Verizon or A&T, now you have another option. So, who’s going to get one?
