Apple Begins Sales Of Unlocked SIM-Free iPhone X In The US

Online orders for an unlocked iPhone X are delivering on December 13th-about a week out.

As 9to5Mac reported yesterday, Apple is now offering the option to buy the tenth-anniversary handset without a carrier.

To get a SIM-free variant of the iPhone X, buyers can head over to Apple's website and choose to make a one-time payment of $999 for the 64GB version or $1,149 for the 256GB version of the phone. You'll either have to pay for the device in full up front, or entertain special financing through Apple, which won't charge interest if you pay the phone off in 18 months.

The iPhone X earned an "excellent" rating in PCMag's review, nabbing props for its "updated design", "powerful processor", "excellent screen", "first-of-its-kind augmented reality front camera", and-of course-its ability to create animoji.

Is Elon Musk's story about sending a auto to Mars fake news?
He wants to land at least two of the spacecraft on Mars in 2022 carrying equipment - and then ones transporting people in 2024. Musk says that the first Falcon Heavy's payload will be his midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity song in it.

"SIM-free" means your iPhone doesn't ship with a carrier SIM card.

The threat of backorders and shipping delays have dogged the iPhone X since before the phone even launched.

If you selected an iPhone for T-Mobile, it will come with the appropriate nano-SIM, but you'll need to contact T-Mobile or visit an Apple Store to activate your iPhone.

Apple is now selling an unlocked version of its iPhone X that isn't tethered to a specific carrier like Verizon or AT&T.
