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?
No it doesn't just get it unlocked pop your SIM card In and restore in iTunes you should see the picture I posted above.

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!

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.​
