    Can anyone whose managed to get to the US Apple Store tell me if there were unlocked iPhone 5's available, or do you have to select a carrier and a tariff?

    Hoping to get an unlocked iPhone 5 for use in the UK.

    Thanks

    The unlocked phones are NOT being sold at this time - no pre-orders. According to TheVerge, they won't be available on launch day (9/21) either... prices were released tho. $649, $749, $849)

    Thanks Fausty, I had heard that but was ever hopeful.

    Can anyone remember how long it was before unlocked 4S's were available through the US Apple Store? My US colleague is coming to the UK on 10/8/12 so was hoping to have it delivered by then so he can bring it... I know, wishful thinking.

    If I remember correctly (could be an issue ) it was something like 4-5 weeks... I remember the phone pre-order was early October and I think the unlocked phones were available around first week in November...
