iPhone 4

In case you didn’t know, Apple now sells unlock and contract-free iPhone here in the U.S. You can get a contract-free and unlock iPhone 4 by ordering it on Apple.com or by visiting an Apple Store and pick it up from there. Buying an unlock and contact-free from Apple here in the U.S can have its negative and positive reasons.

Good reasons to buy an iPhone without contract & unlock from Apple:

  • You will be able to use the phone on any GSM carrier, saving money on carrier plans
  • Take it outside the country
  • Sell it, and it cost more than a locked-on-contract iPhone
  • Still have warranty from Apple
Reasons why getting the iPhone 4 on a contract is worth:
  • It cheaper; the iPhone 4 (16GB) cost you $200 on a two-year contract, while it will cost you $649.00 contract-free
  • Unlock iPhone here in the U.S is limited to EDGE(2G) speed only; 3G won’t work on T-Mobile or other GSM carrier
  • Officially supported carrier will help setting up the phone with their network, or solve any problems
  • Unsupported carriers won’t offer you much help if you have any problem with their network
  • Receive early upgrade, allowing you to buy the latest iPhone model (like iPhone 5) cheaper
Unlock iPhone 4 without contract prices:
  • iPhone 4 – Unlocked (GSM) – 16GB Black cost $649
  • iPhone 4 – Unlocked (GSM) – 32GB Black cost $749
So think which method of having an iPhone is best for you before making a decision on getting it.
