The unlocked models are listed as “Shipping in November” on Apple’s online store. Which means we will only be able to order them after a few weeks. Note that the unlocked iPhones only work with supported GSM carriers around the world (In India, Airtel & Vodafone are supported, however, iPhone works with all GSM carriers in India). CDMA only works when iPhone is purchased with a CDMA carrier contract. This means that you won’t be able to buy an unlocked iPhone 4S and use it on Reliance or Tata Indicom’s network in India.
Unlocked iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS are already available at a reduced price.
UPDATE: Unlocked iPhone 4S is available in many other countries where government regulations mandate sale of unlocked model in addition to subsidized ones. These are countries like Canada, Australia and UK. Grab them from there if you have any sources there! (Thanks Shubham!)
