Unlocked iPhone 5s Without a SIM Card Now in the U.S.

Apple Balla reports that newly released American version of the unlocked iPhone 5s is now being sold in Apple’s online store. The GSM SIM-free iPhone 5s has the same features as the regular, non-unlocked version of the iPhone 5s, except that it comes without a SIM card. The user has to purchase a SIM card separately, in the country where he intends to use his iPhone. An unlocked iPhone works on many GSM networks in many different countries and does not require any contract. This unlocked version of iPhone is very attractive to international travelers who often have one SIM card for every country they visit.

The American version of the SIM-free model works on T-Mobile as well as AT&T without a contract. The GSM version of the iPhone 5s can be purchased with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB and is priced at $649, $749, and $849. It comes in the same colors as its regular versions – gold, silver and gray. It is already available in Apple’s online store and can be shipped in one to two weeks. The Apple’s retail stores will start selling it in the next couple of weeks.

Apple has been selling an unlocked iPhone 5s for T-Mobile with a T-Mobile SIM card for quite some time, but that version could be potentially linked to a T-Mobile account. There is also an AT&T/GSM version of the iPhone 5S, with an AT&T contract. The phone can be manually unlocked to be used with a different carrier, but that makes it the same as any locked iPhone 5s.

The unlocked iPhone 5s has been available in several countries since its launch in September.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
