Apple Starts Selling Factory Unlocked iPhone 4 for $649

by on Jun.14, 2011, under Mobile

A good news for all the Apple iPhone fans, Apple has started to sell factory unlocked iPhone 4 at their US online store.

iPhone 4

“Unlocked” simply means that a mobile phone is not bound to any particular carrier. In India, customers buy an Unlocked phone and easily switch between carriers by simply replacing the SIM card. Though in the U.S., the mobile phones are not sold separately they are always tied to a carrier.

The 16 GB iPhone 4 will cost US$649, while the 32 GB model will retail for $749, which is higher than it should actually retail but is cheaper than its jail broken counterparts being sold in India. A unlocked iPhone 4 used to cost around INR 40,000 in India which is quite higher than $649. So this step by Apple will prove to be a boon for international buyers.
