Apple fans from the United States have a big reason to be happy, as starting from today, they will be able to buy a SIM-free iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Until now, this option was available only in Europe, but US-based customers have from now on access to it too.
Two-year contract? No, thanks!
So, customers can now choose their own wireless carrier, without entering into a two-year contract, according to money.cnn.com. I don’t know about you guys, but this options sounded way better every time I got a new phone. It’s true, a SIM-free iPhone 6 will cost more, but it will come with a couple of advantages.
Besides the liberty of choosing any carrier you want, it’s perfect for when you’re traveling, as you can use a local SIM and avoid expensive roaming fees.
Liberty has a price, though
As for the prices, a SIM-free iPhone 6 with a storage capacity of just 16 GB will cost you $650, while its bigger brother, the 6 Plus, with the same capacity, starts from $750. If you’re one of those users who likes to keep a lot of stuff on a cellphone, you can go for ‘bigger’ versions, but each storage bump will cost you an extra $100. To be more specific, the $128 models have a price tag of $850, respectively $950.
So, what do you think about this option? Will you pick a SIM-free iPhone when it’s time for a new phone or do you prefer the classic way, and pay $200 and sign a two-year contract, alongside a monthly fee? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
