As expected, Apple has started selling the unlocked version of the iPhone 5. The unlocked iPhone 5 is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities for $649, $749 and $849, respectively. For US customers, the unlocked version of the handset is compatible with any domestic or international GSM network. Since it is not tied to a carrier, the unlocked iPhone 5 does not ship with a nanoSIM, so you will have to supply your own.
Customers can buy the unlocked iPhone 5 at Apple’s online store. Just visit the iPhone 5 ordering page, choose your capacity and then scroll to the bottom of the screen. Click on the link that says “Or get iPhone unlocked and contract-free” to open the option for the unlocked iPhone 5.
