iPhones sold by SingTel will not be carrier-locked

Chua Hian Hou wrote, according to an interview with a SingTel boss:

Buyers, though, will have to sign up for a SingTel subscription, although the phone can be used on any mobile network in Singapore, unlike in the United States where iPhones are ‘locked’ to only work with one operator.

Does this mean those who want to use both official apps from the App Store and a network other than AT&T in the States would find the Singaporean iPhones more appealing?

  1. It’s be awesome if that were true… right now 1st gen iPhones are making a killing on eBay because they can be unlocked, unliked the 2nd gens that have yet to be released. :)
