SIM-free iPhone 5s prices
Now you can buy the iPhone 5s in either gray, gold, or silver in either 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB variants. The new unlocked pricing will run you $649, $749, or $849, respectively.

The unlocked model will let you insert a nano-SIM of your choosing. You still have the option of shipping your unlocked model with a T-Mobile nano-SIM preinstalled which you can then activate for use on T-Mobile’s network.

A SIM-free version of the iPhone 5c has been available since its launch in September. Many international countries have had availability of the fully unlocked iPhone 5s for several weeks.
