Apple begins selling SIM-free iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the US

Apple begins selling SIM-free iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the US

About a month after launching the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus internationally through various contract and carrier-financing options, Apple has begun selling the SIM-free iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on its US online store.

The SIM-free iPhone works on any carrier in the world, assuming that the iPhone supports the wireless bands of the carrier. You’ll not be tied to any agreement or condition, and can use the device on the carrier of your choice — at full retail price.

Apple on the iPhone 7 network compatibility:

AT&T and T-Mobile

The iPhone for AT&T and T-Mobile does not support CDMA and will not work on Sprint or Verizon Wireless. It will use 3G cellular technology for voice services and either 3G or 4G LTE cellular technology for data services. However, the iPhone for AT&T and T-Mobile can roam internationally on many GSM carriers around the world.

Sprint, Verizon Wireless, and SIM-free

If Sprint or Verizon Wireless is your wireless carrier, your iPhone will work on AT&T and T-Mobile once activated. The SIM-free iPhone will work with any carrier. An iPhone activated on Sprint or Verizon Wireless, and the SIM-free iPhone, also have the ability to roam internationally on GSM networks.

International Roaming

All iPhone models are world phones, so you can use them almost anywhere. Which means you can roam internationally on GSM networks in over 200 countries around the world, whether you are a GSM or CDMA network customer. Availability of LTE data varies in some countries and depends on carrier support for certain LTE radio frequencies.  For details on LTE network support, please see www.apple.com/iphone/LTE.

As far as the availability is concerned, the iPhone 7 ships faster than the Plus, though the Jet Black variant has longer shipping time in either size. The iPhone 7 starts at $649, while the iPhone 7 Plus at $769.
