You Can Now Purchase an Unlocked iPhone X Without Carrier Activation From the Apple Online Store

Posted November 20, 2017 at 12:17am by iClarified
Apple is now giving customers the option of purchasing a full price, unlocked, and unactivated iPhone X from the online Apple Store.

This means you can order a Verizon iPhone X with a Qualcomm LTE modem rather than AT&T or T-Mobile iPhone X that uses the slower Intel modem.

You Can Now Purchase an Unlocked iPhone X Without Carrier Activation From the Apple Online Store


Previously, it was possible to order an unactivated iPhone from Best Buy; however, the company was charging an additional $100 fee over and above the full price of the device. After customers complained about the outrageous fee, the company pulled the option entirely rather than sell the device at the full price and lose out on some bounty payments from carriers.

To purchase an unactivated iPhone, select your desired model then choose a one-time payment. After clicking the blue continue button you'll be brought to a page where you can select your carrier activation option. Or, you can just click the link below.

They pay exhausting amounts for these devices. I would say it time to invest in bitcoin. Will be over 12,000 .by Christmas . Better investment then 10 phones.

Nope, different models famalam! A1901 - AT&T/T-Mobile is only GSM, Intel Chip PMB9948 . A1865 - Verizon/Sprint Model is has both GSM+CDMA, which has the faster Broadcom Chip MDM9656. (Considered a Global iPhone)

Now that’s stupid for real because I’m sure they are the same phones simply just unlocking them using remote unlock service. It’s all a scam.

Not exactly, this are Apple unlock able with warranty all over the world which also work on all frequencies tax free and no cell providers 2 years plan, I'm ordering 12 pieces to start with 3- 128GB Silver, 3- 128GB black, 3- 256GB Silver and 3- 256GB black. Reason: No Apple Store in my country and Apple just got to selling the iPhone 8 last week here so the 10 will probably start selling here in a couple of months, in the meantime people are smuggling the 10 paying to unlock them and making a ton of $$$$ selling them. A 128GB iPhone 10 sells for $2.200 plus, a GB256 goes for minimum $3,300 and it's impossible to keep up with demand, the problem is passing them trough the Airport security so either you take the risk or the best way is paying $100 to 4 people on the airplane to pass them for you because 2 phones are legal tax free per person even if it's a baby so a family is the best and everyone wins. So I spend about $13,009 and within a few days I get back $33,000 but it's more like $35,000 or more because it's unbelievable what people will do to get one right now by outbidding others and I get a free vacation in Hawaii. Already done it 2 month ago with the new iPad Pros 5- 256GB 10.5 inch, 5- 256GB 12.9 inches, 5- 512GB 10.5 inches and 5- 512GB 12.9 inches, 10 Apple Pencils and 10 Smart covers with keyboards, after expenses and a week vacation in Hawaii I still made over $30,000 but that's over because the new iPad Pros are selling here now to, they arrived with the iPhone 8's and Cell Providers are the original importers for Apple products, the Apple Watch 3 should be here within a week so the only money maker that left is the iPhone 10 and I internet to use it now that Apple are finally selling the unlocked ones.
