    I decided to get it unlocked via a ebay user for $6 today.I decided to do it before the carriers try to put a stop or something and for $6 why not give it a go.

    I didn't know it was so cheap to do this. I'm gonna unlock my 64GB 4S then sell it. Thanks for the info. By the way...the phone doesn't have to be currently activated, does it?

    That's pretty cool. I don't know why I'd need to unlock it since I am obligated to stick with ATT for two years. I guess it would be good if I was going to Europe though.

    I bought the unlock for my 4S. I already submitted my IMEI# and now I'm just waiting for the email telling me I'm unlocked. Also went and swapped out the phone today under warranty and got a new cable under warranty, too.

    I should be able to bank when I sell this phone now. Unlocked 64GB 4S, basically brand new. Brand new OEM headphones, brand new USB cable. Original box. Can't wait to put it on Craigslist now!

    So what happens if you have to swap your iPhone 5 for a warranty issue. Do you lose your unlock since it's phone specific?

    This was so easy and fast ! I pay gladly again just not to call AT&T and wait on hold and talk for almost 1 hour
    and then again wait until they finally send you days later the e-mail

    Is it possible to buy a factory unlocked iPhone from Apple in NYC? My Dad is going to NY on Friday and I would like him to buy me an unlocked iPhone 5.

    Or does anyone know a certain store/shop that sells contract-free Verizon iPhone 5s, for instance, or factory unlocked ones?

    Thank you very much.

    I heard if you buy a att iPhone at full price all you have to do is take it home and do the restore and you bill be greeted with the "congratulations your iPhone is u locked screen".

    all Verizon iPhone 5 are unlocked (they bought LTE spectrum under the provision they can not lock it)
    unless you are using LTE you should be better of with the Verizon version

    What phone did you used to get ?
    best is to do the night ordering since the store don't stock that well
    iPhone 5 is available in limited quantities. Buy it at your favorite Apple Retail Store or choose in-store pickup when you buy online between 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m.​
