factory unlocked iPhones?

I was told this morning that all THE 5s iphone and the newest are unlocked from the factory. In addition, to use the phone, you get just a sim card by the carrier that you want to use and you leave. I asked the question originally because I'm looking at used 5s "." I asked a salesman if it has been unlocked. the answer I got was as above. then, is it correct or should I be worried that a 5s could still be attached to a carrier?

This is false.

    I am going to Japan November 2016 and plan to buy unlocked (no sim) iphone to use in my country (Thailand) 7.

  • Factory unlocked iPhone 6 works only with T-Mobile sorta

    I bought my iPhone 6 from Apple directly and I'm trying to sell it. I used three subsidiaries of different att and never had a problem. I have recently put up for sale and had someone with tmobile who wanted to buy it. I put the sim in the phone did a quick flash of logo Apple then asked me to the initial setting. Before, I even pressed no button Choose wifi or cell for the installation, he showed with LTE service. I then chose wifi and it says please wait while allowing or something similar. After that, it says SIMcard not supported, blah blah, a bunch of other things on sim not taken in charge. While demonstrating that he was getting service perfectly. So I took her sim and tried in my other iPhone 6 Plus factory unlocked to and he did exactly the same thing.

  • Factory unlocked iphone 6s gives error sim not supported

    Hey guys

    I recently bought a new iphone unlocked factory 6 sec New York, and he has not used in the States. Now I'm back in my country Pakistan, and it does not recognize the sim card I inserted even if it supports an iphone officially. It gives the same error as below as in the phone itself. Care of apple, I called and they said to restore and update hard resetting, which, after hitting a few tests, does not always work.

    would be really grateful for the help

    Thank you

  • Buy an unlocked iPhone factory 5s

    I want to buy an iPhone 'unlocked factory' 5 s to use it in other countries (in America).

    How can I buy it online from the apple.com site?

    The Amazon sites and eBay sell refurbished who is actually damaged or without work.

    I bought one and it did not work properly, so I had to go back to the seller.

    Thank you

    There is no way to buy a factory unlocked iPhone from apple.com 5s that Apple no longer sells it on apple.com. You can buy through 3 parties, but it's all that much as you can no longer buy an iPhone 5 c.

  • unlocked iPhone, but ask for the activation of the SIM

    I bought an iPhone 6 from the UK as a factory unlocked. I have never had any problem with any carrier other whatsoever. Recently, I restored (also tried in DFU mode) iOS phone and on the restoration, he asked for activation and said that my SIM card was "invalid". I tried with several SIM cards and yet no progress. At the same time, I checked the IMEI and it showed that it was locked to O2 UK, I spoke to O2 and they said that the phone is unlocked. Since then, I have restarted the phone and tried again, but made no progress. Is there something that I am missing? Can someone help me?

    I would appreciate your help as I was without a phone for 2 days.
