Unlocked iPhone X Is Now On Sale

An unlocked SIM-free iPhone is attractive for travelers who might want to use their iPhone overseas with a local SIM card.

Customers seeking an iPhone X can choose from locked models for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon, or the SIM-free version, which all are available at $1,000 for a version with 64GB of storage or $1,150 for 256GB of storage.

The new option, available from Apple's online store in the U.S., allows customers to buy an iPhone X without having to commit to or otherwise have an account with one of the nation's top carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile).

As 9to5Mac reported yesterday, Apple is now offering the option to buy the tenth-anniversary handset without a carrier.

Apple iPhone X production has stabilized more than a month after the flagship smartphone was initially made available to customers. This version gives the freedom of activating the phone at any local or global carrier by simply getting a SIM card from your desired operator.

Customers who would rather not be tied to a wireless carrier can purchase the unlocked iPhone X at a full price starting at $999, and activate it with their preferred carrier.

If you cant wait for a December 12 shipment, there is always the pick-up option where you get it straight from an Apple Store.

SIM-free iPhone X models fully support both CDMA and GSM networks, thus allowing you to use them with any wireless carrier. Shipping times that originally were estimated at 5 to 6 weeks have now shrunk down to just one week from the time an order is placed. The iPhone X supports GSM and CDMA networks, so users can get on almost any network they want with a SIM card.
