    The factory unlocked version has been available since preorders went live. The T-Mobile version is factory unlocked and will work on any GSM carrier in the US and overseas. It will also work with Verizon, however, you would have to activate a SIM using a Verizon phone first and then transfer it to the T-Mobile iPhone as Verizon will not activate any iPhone on their network that isn't supported by them, even if it is capable of using their network. The Verizon iPhone that I have is unlocked right out of the box and was also available at launch, although you would either have to have service with Verizon to get it from them, or purchase it at full retail directly from a Apple Store. I'm using my Verizon iPhone 6 with T-Mobile and my 6 Plus with AT&T and both devices run fine on another carriers network.

    Look at the difference at check out on the 5S. You get two choices of unlocked and contract free at check out. Is the sim the only difference? Or some settings are set for T-Mobile? Thanks.

    In the 6, if you just take the SIM out of the T-Mobile one and put in any other GSM compatible SIM, it will work. The only difference between the "Unlocked" and T-Mobile version is the Unlocked doesn't come with a SIM card

    The thing about Verizon is their voice network falls back to CDMA technology... And why devices OEMed for other GSM networks will not be activated by Verizon... Verizon will only activate devices that are OEMed for use on their network, including the CDMA voice network. yes, Verizon iPhones(5 and above) can be used on other networks...but devices OEMed for GSM carriers can't be used on Verizon.

    LTE will work on the Verizon model on any carrier, but the T-Mobile and AT&T will have LTE on any GSM carrier. The Sprint phone, as far as I know, can only be used on Sprint.

    I wish people would listen when we tell them that any version you buy at full price is considered unlocked. I don't know how many times I've said this before.

    Different bands supported. New one is similar to the Sprint version, supports more bands so will work in more places then T-Mobile model.
