Apple Offers Unlocked iPhone 5

After keeping the iPhone 5 tied up with certain wireless carriers with each purchase, Apple now offers its latest smartphone without the burden of a two-year carrier contract. You can now buy an unlocked iPhone 5 right within Apple’s online store and use it on whichever network you want, as long as it is compatible with the device.

And by compatible, we mean only GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile in the United States. Those who travel a lot can simply pop in a new nano-SIM card from a local GSM carrier and you are good to go. The unlocked iPhone 5 does not work in CDMA networks such as Sprint and Verizon.

The contract-free iPhone 5 starts at $649 for the 16GB model, $749 for the 32GB version, and $849 for the 64GB device.
