These unsubsidized contractless devices come without a microSIM card. Buyers will need to get a microSIM card from their GSM carrier. Apple confirms that the unlocked iPhone 4 can work with microSIM cards provided by carriers outside of the U.S.

Apple does not disclose which GSM carrier’s 3G network the unlocked iPhone 4 is turned for (AT&T or T-Mobile).
