There was a lot of confusion amongst Apple employees at my nearest Apple store regarding the unlocked iPhone 5s. Not a single Apple genius knew that T-Mobile iPhone 5s when bought at full price is in fact unlocked for global GSM use. I was kind of a guinea pig when I challenged the Apple genius into saying Apple’s website clearly states iPhone 5s model A1533 is unlocked for global use. It works with any GSM carriers including AT&T and T-Mobile with full LTE access no less! That is the number …

Until recently, unlocking the iPhone has been a great deal. Having covered the iPhone since the original iPhone was unveiled, I know how much of a pain unlocking the iPhone can be. It required heavy technical skills at first followed by user friendly tools. It would require jailbreaking the device first and then unlocking using ultrasn0w. I don’t even want to start about the ugly Gevey SIMs! Not anymore. With the iPhone exclusivity contract between Apple and AT&T expired, things got better. Unlocking the device to use on T-Mobile, Prepaid …

Apple is finally letting you buy a factory unlocked iPhone 4S directly from their website. I believe this is a much better deal if you are not eligible for an upgrade and are looking for a good resale value when you are ready for the next best iPhone! I would buy it online for some cashback and the convenience of the iPhone being shipped to our doorstep.

There is a catch though – it is a world phone but limited to GSM worldwide.
How about some cashback?

When it comes to iPhone purchases, not many …

All you have to do is :
