If you want an unlocked iPhone 5 that’s not attached to any contract-selling carriers, you’re in for a rude awakening: they will run you between $649 and $849.
According to PC Mag, Apple will be selling unlocked iPhone 5 handsets on their website in both black and white color options, as well as in GSM and CDMA.
You’ll be able to order unlocked iPhone 5 devices starting at $649 for the 16GB model, $749 for the 32GB model, and $849 for the 64GB model. No exact date has been specified for the unlocked models just yet. However, PC Mag speculates that Apple will roll out the unlocked models after Apple finishes their worldwide launch of the iPhone 5.
