Unlocked iPhone 4 Rumoured to Hit US Stores this week

There seems to be some good news doing the rounds for the US iPhone users. The rumour generated as a result of a tweet by @chronicwire, who apparently set up the account recently, enlists four specific models -the MC603 (16GB, black) MC604 (16GB, white) MC605 (32GB, black) and MC606 (32GB, white) which will be available unlocked in US stores within 2 days. The company has been supplying unlocked iPhones in a few countries over the past few years as is made compulsory by the law. Even though this will be the first time for American stores selling the unlocked version, if the rumour is true, the iPhones would work on GSM carriers. There is a word of caution for those who already started thinking of dumping their iPhones for the new unlocked version as the expected price is quite high. The subvention in prices till now was because of its pact with a carrier like AT&T. Unlocking the iPhone would remove this subsidy and possibly make the set cost as much as $600 as compared to the present $199 just like what the case was when iPhones were first launched in the market. Also, the next series of iPhones is expected to be released shortly. This could greatly distress the tech savvy for paying such a heavy price for a lower model. Interchanging to T-Mobile apart from AT&T would not be beneficial too as they both restrict the use of 3G making web browsing slow.

Unlocked iPhone 4

The news is not expected to create a stir among the common folks unless they are among those who need switching SIM cards on a regular basis because of their travelling obligation. Though it will be welcomed by international travellers who will now be able to easily switch SIMS and use their unlocked iPhones with local carriers outside America.


Get Ready to Experience the 4G Connectivity on next iphone

You will be amazed to hear about the new iphone with brand new 4G experience but only for AT&T’s users.  Well, it is big news for AT&T’s iphone 5 users but not for Verizon users as they would not be able to experience the increased speed. This can be understood from the fact that the AT&T iphone 5 users can experience download speed ranging from 5-10 Mbps. However, for Verizon users, the speed remains 1 Mbps. Rethemeier gives the information about this next iphone. But no one knows exactly about its launching date. Some even call it a rumour and this rumour has made its place in the market a few weeks before.

iPhone 5

iphone 5 with 4G is a kind of new advent which we all are waiting for.  It offers a tremendous downloading speed and will work in other networks as well. However, some people claims that iphone 5 is just an advanced version of iphone 4 and just consider it is a slight revision of the previous successful set. Apple is now expected to launch any new iphone before September at WWDC. Instead of launching of new iphone hardware, WWDC 2011 will host software launch and three software namely iOS 5, Mac OS X Lion and Apple’s new iCloud service are on their way of launch in the market very soon.  This news has been confirmed by Apple and this launch will bring a big revolution in the software industry as well and it is really big news for iphone users. The launching of iphone 5 is indeed big news for which we have our fingers crossed and it will launch soon after this big launch. It will be great to use the new iphone and new software.

iPad 2 3G sold unlocked in US

Despite the fact that the first-gen iPad 3G was sold unlocked when it was launched in the US, there were confusions between people on whether or not Apple will sell it unlocked again. Good news for the people those are staying in United States as earlier today, @MuscleNerd confirmed that the 3G model is already carrier unlocked and those who are planning to buy need not have to worry about getting it unlocked.

Here is a screenshot of iPad 2 3G running on T-mobile network:

Twitter post by MuscleNerds:

“Confirming iPad2 is carrier unlocked: http://is.gd/PAwtPX (same BB as iPhone…unlock status is in per-device “seczone”)

The iPad2 unlock status was completely expected, just confirming it for those who want to use T-Mobile instead of AT&T. Doesn’t apply to i4.”

Stay tuned for more information on iPad 2.
