Unlocked iPhone 4S launches in U.S., international launch in Hong Kong, South Korea, and more

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/styles/560w560h/public/images/stories/2011/10/iphone-4S-hero.jpg" alt="iPhone 4S review" title=iPhone 4S review" width="560" height="373" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-79936" />

Apple's iPhone 4S is now available factory unlocked in the U.S. from Apple.com. Why it took until November when countries like Canada and the UK got unlocked models at launch, who knows? But if you've been waiting to go contract and SIM-lock free, now's your chance! (Reminder: Only the GSM/AT&T version is available unlocked, not the CDMA/Verizon/Sprint version).

Apple has also launched the iPhone 4S in 13 more countries, namely Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Romania and South Korea.

Will Apple unlock your iPhone for a fee? If not, is there a way to unlock without jailbreaking?

I thought i read somewhere on here that all iphone 4s's were the same, both gsm and cdma, how would an unlocked one be only gsm?
