Is everybody over the fact that Apple didn't announce an iPhone 5? Did it not bother you in the first place? Great, let's move on, because today's the day you can put your pre-order in, assuming iOS is what floats your boat. Undecided on a wireless carrier? Well hey, if your pockets run deep enough, you don't have to have to make a commitment, provided you can hold out until November.

As you go through the pre-order page, Apple reveals that unlocked iPhone 4S devices will ship out sometime next month. Pricing is a good chunk higher when you sidestep signing a two-year contract -- $649 for 16GB, $749 for 32GB, and $849 for 64GB -- but at least you have the option, right? There is, however, one caveat:

"The unlocked iPhone works only on supported GSM networks, such as AT&T in the U.S. When you travel internationally, you can also use a micro-SIM card from a local GSM carrier. The unlocked iPhone 4 will not work with CDMA carriers such as Verizon Wireless or Sprint," Apple says.

For everyone else not opting for an unlocked model, the Phone 4S will deliver October 14th. Pricing is $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB, and $399 for 64GB, all with two-year service agreements and qualifying data plan.

So the unlocked ones will be the only ones that support roaming? http://www.tested.com/news/network-hopping-wont-work-without-an-unlocked-iphone-4s/2989/
