Earlier this morning, Apple began selling unlocked versions of the 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4 for $649 and $749 respectively. It's a steep price to pay for a phone that's otherwise heavily subsidized by wireless carriers (a 16GB model has a retail sticker price of $199.99 at Verizon), but hey, freedom isn't free. What's the upside of this GSM-only supported phone that requires you to buy an active micro-SIM card from a wireless carrier? It's not the greatest thing in the world but bloggers are pointing out some benefits.
