Unlocked iPhones available online! June 14, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in iPhone.

Ars Technica‘s Infinite Loop reports that a company called Pure Mobile is selling what seems to be unlocked 4GB and 8GB iPhones on its website, usable outside of the AT&T service and ostensibly outside the US too.

This is what everyone outside the United States has been hoping for, although I didn’t think it’d happen this soon, and this openly. Being an online store, someone from, say, Manila could conceivably order one. Certainly Apple and AT&T wouldn’t let this through and undermine all the exclusivity it has been cultivating all these months, would they?

No pricing has yet been announced by Pure Mobile (although it has been revealed on TWIT that an unsubsidized unit bought outside of the subscription package will cost about US$999 for the 4GB model), save for the shipping rates, which are US$29 for Priority and US$19 for Economy. Too good to be true. Methinks the page’ll be pulled soon, so take a look already before it disappears.
