Re: BS.

Can one buy an iPhone 5, right now, unlocked? For any network? Now THAT is the issue. There are 3 types of phones.
Nope.
Go to the apple webstore. You have to pick a phone, then a carrier. Can one get an iPhone 5 unlocked? Notice that they made three types? scary...

Maybe I'm missing something, but you can buy an unlocked iPhone 5 right now...
»store.apple.com/ca/browse/home/s ··· /iphone5

I was only asked about color and size. Now, due to current demand, it'll take some time to arrive at your place, but the purchase will be finished. Then again, you can always change your country setting on the Apple website or within iTunes to say...Hong Kong. From there, you can buy the phone as well.

Anyway, I'd skip this model due to chipped paint and purple flares in pictures.

That's the Canadian store. You can't get them on the US site.

I was just there and saw unlocked, now I don't. Maybe it was the Canadian site I was on but since I typed apple.com not sure how I would have gone to Canadian site.

It probably was the Canadian site somehow. The US unlocked iPhones have gone for the same as the contract-free phones, which start at $649.
