The iPhone 4S has been available on pre-order since October 7 and in stores since last Friday, October 14. These models are available for purchase on contract but Apple promised unlocked iPhone 4S devices starting November.
Turns out that some Apple Stores in America are reportedly already selling unlocked Apple-phones, according to information published by 9to5mac. The activation is done via iTunes when the device is plugged in, at which time a “Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked!” message is displayed. Such an unlocked iPhone allegedly connected to T-Mobile’s EDGE network via an O2 SIM-card on roaming but the phone itself contained a removable AT&T microSIM card.
