Best Buy iPhones

Is Apple the only place to purchase unlocked iPhones? I mean you have the option to buy the iPhone at full cost but you have to choose one of the three networks. I thought if you bought the phone at retail its unlocked?

Re: Best Buy iPhones

Good morning!

Thank you for reaching out to us here on the forums.  

At this time the only way to purchase a new iPhone unlocked without a carrier is through Apple directly.  

 

Thanks,

Since Tracfone was acquired by Verizon, they now have a policy that says you can unlock your phone in as little as 60 days. You could try that. Total Wireless and Simple Mobile are all part of Tracfone. You would be on their plan for 60 days and then get the unlock.

Re: Best Buy iPhones

Hey, there is the latest model by iPhone like iPhone 13 and iPhone 14, but if you don't want to spend too much money on that then you can go with the refurbished or second-hand mobile phone, as they are cheaper option than buying new one.
