Unlocked iPhone 5 Now Available in U.S.

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Apple fans have long awaited the availability of the unlocked iPhone 5 in the United States (Okay, not really that long. The device was just made available in September…).

On Friday, their wishes were fulfilled with the popular tech giant making the unlocked product available via its online website.

“The unlocked iPhone includes all the features of iPhone but without a wireless contract commitment. You can activate and use iPhone on the supported GSM wireless network of your choice, such as AT&T in the United States. The unlocked iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 will not work with CDMA-based carriers such as Verizon Wireless or Sprint,” explains the tech provider.

The offering is ideal for those traveling abroad or others who prefer not to commit to wireless contracts. In the U.S., the unlocked iPhone 5 is notably compatible with mobile carrier AT&T. The unrestricted mobile device had already been made available in Canada.
