Unlocked iPhone 4S Available in November

Note: Sorry for the wrong info. I didn’t notice that pre-ordering for the unlocked iPhone 4S is still unavailable. I was too surprised to see it on the site that I didn’t bother to try adding it to the shopping cart. (Thanks Mark!)

After a few hours of downtime, the U.S. Apple Store is again up and I guess it’s no surprise anymore – the iPhone 4S is now available for pre-order. What’s surprising is that if you scroll down the pre-order page, you’ll see an option to pre-order an unlocked version of the iPhone 4S.

Wait, unlocked iPhone 4S? This means that we here in Manila can pre-order the iPhone 4S and use it with our local telcom SIM card? — YES of course!

The Apple guide to unlocked iPhone 4S confirms this:

About the Unlocked iPhone

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.

If you don’t want a multiyear service contract or if you prefer to use a local carrier when traveling abroad, the unlocked iPhone is the best choice. It arrives without a micro-SIM card, so you’ll need an active micro-SIM card from any supported GSM carrier worldwide. To start using it, simply insert the micro-SIM card into the slot on your iPhone and turn it on by pressing and holding the On/Off button for a few seconds. Then follow the onscreen instructions to set up your iPhone.

The only thing left is to find a way to order and have it shipped to a U.S. address of course. The unlocked iPhone 4S will start shipping by November.

Here are the prices of the unlocked iPhone 4S in case you’re keen on pre-ordering:

  • Unlocked iPhone 4S (16GB) – $649
  • Unlocked iPhone 4S (32GB) – $749
  • Unlocked iPhone 4S (64GB) – $849
