We know that at least three Pakistani mobile phone companies will be putting iPhone 6 and 6 plus on sale for their customers from December 11th, 2014, the news is that these iPhones will be unlocked and not tied to any specific network.
Since there’s no subsidy offered for the iPhones, or in lay-man’s language iPhone 6 and 6 plus will come without any contract, these smartphones are going to be unlocked and would be able to run on any network.
Irfan Wahab Khab, Chief Marketing Officer of Telenor Pakistan, during a press briefing this week confirmed that iPhone smartphones that his company will be selling from December 11th will be unlocked. As per sources, same is the case with Ufone and Mobilink.
Mobile phone companies, however, may offer incentives to those who will stick to their network. Such incentives might include free 3G data plus voice and SMS bundles for certain duration.
Not to mention, mobile phone companies will also offer warranties (through distributor) and other after-sale services for iPhone purchasers.
It maybe recalled that Ufone has started pre-registration for iPhone and iPhone 6, while Mobilink and Telenor has announced that it will start taking pre-orders from customers from December 5th, 2014. Shipping will start from December 11th, 2014.
