SOME contrast found a list of countries selling the iPhone 4 officially unlocked. The countries include: Saudi Arabia, Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, Greece, Hong Kong, Italy, Luxemburg, Macau, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates.
Mishary from SOME contrast was wondering why France was not on the list. My answer is this: This list on Apple’s site includes all the countries/companies with an official iPhone release. Saudi Arabia has no checkbox under “Locked to carrier” so the iPhone is not locked. France have a checkbox under “Locked to carrier” but there is a checkbox under “Carrier offers authorized unlocking”. So basically if you buy an iPhone 4 in France then you need to ask the carrier to unlock it for you.

Another interesting thing I found out is that the iPhone sold on Apple’s Hong Kong Online Store is the cheapest world wide! Wish there was an Aramex Shop & Ship for Hong Kong.
