Currently the unlocked 8GB iPhone 3GS is already being sold in Canada for $549 CAD ($532 US). Soon Canada will be getting the unlocked iPhone 4 sets from Apple, news that Apple has now confirmed.
In case you are unfamiliar with the term ‘unlocked’ it means that Apple will not be restricting the Canadian iPhone 4 owners to a specific service carrier. Instead, owners will be free to use their handset with whichever cellphone carrier they see fit. Of course this carrier-free package will come with a price.
Apple revealed the price of the unlocked iPhone 4: the 16 GB version will cost Canadians 659 of their dollars whereas the 32 GB version will cost $779 CAD. That is $639 and $755 US respectively.
Whether a microSIM will be included or not has not been confirmed; if bought separately, the SIMs will cost owners around $5 to $10 CAD.
