Submission + - Orange's Apple deal to bear unlocked iPhones (

An anonymous reader writes: Orange will indeed offer Apple's iPhone on France, but the most interesting aspect of the two firms' partnership will be the availability, for the first time, of officially unlocked handsets. French law prevents carriers from tying handsets exclusively to their networks — consumers have to be able to move to a different network provider and take their phones with them. The upshot is that Orange will sell a locked iPhone for 399 alongside an unlocked model for a price that's yet to be specified by either party.
