    Considering Apple is going to be selling unlocked devices contract-free in the US starting in November, I think that the market for unlocked devices in the US will take a bit of a hit. That said, Apple is claiming that the unlocked/contract-free device in the US will be GSM only and will not work on Verizon or Sprint. I'm curious about this, I was planning to wait and buy one contract free so that if the 5 was released in June/July of next year, I could buy it at the discounted price, but if the unlocked version is somehow blocked by MEID or similar from joining Sprint or Verizon's network, that may color my decision.

    I can't imagine that Apple would make a separate model iPhone 4S specifically without the CDMA chip, so I'm very interested in the first teardown that comes for the 4S to determine whether it's got the dual-mode baseband in it.

    Ooh I didnt know that! Do you think the 4GS may have a dual mode baseband? That'd be interesting. It'll be cool if they make a dual sim card iPhone so I wont need 2 iPhones for personal and business lines. Carring 2 iPhones is pretty unconfortable.

    I know for a fact that the 4GS for AT&T and the 4GS for Verizon & Sprint are the same 'model' phone, but since they haven't been released yet, I don't know if this is just internal naming and that the CDMA will be a different device than the GSM, or whether they all include the dual-mode baseband and one of the chips is just 'locked down' in some way or another. Should know shortly, my wife has one arriving on the 14th, so.

    Sprint phones might be locked to the sim unless you pay some extra dollar. But not just to the sim, you wont be able to replace it O_O
