When buying an iphone from apple is it factory unlocked?

1 Answer from the Community

  • Best Answer:

    It depends, you can purchase your New iPhone with a pre-selected carrier such as AT&T, Sprint or Verizon Wireless, or you can purchase it unlocked that will allow you to use it with most GSM based carriers, but not with CDMA based carriers. To be factory unlocked, you should purchase an unlocked iPhone, that option it's just below the capacity choosing option or directly in an Apple Retail Store
