Looking to get your hands on an iPhone 5 totally unlocked? Tonight your first chance to get an unlocked iPhone 5 directly from Apple’s website. Pricing has yet to officially be unveiled but is expected to be around $649, $749 and $849 for the 16, 32 and 64GB versions, respectively.
Keep in mind that this is only for online sales, as Apple’s chain stores have yet to start carrying unlocked phones. Apple does plan to offer unlocked iPhone 5 units soon (units already arriving in stores) but has yet to drop an official date.
So when can you order your unlocked iPhone? It’s expected to go on sale as soon as 9PM tonight, according to sources reporting to 9to5 Mac. For those that simply want a great unlocked phone but don’t care what ecosystem it runs on, you could also consider the cheaper $299 LG Nexus 4 which is now back in stock from Google.[ source ]
