Though no pricing details have yet been released for any version of the iPhone 4S from Airtel or Aircel, but we can expect that to be around the estimated iPhone 4S prices which we reported about a couple of days ago.

It remains to be seen if they bring all the 3 versions that is the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB iPhone 4S and what price tag does these devices gets as it’s coming from both the carriers and if one has to stand out in the fierce competition and keeping in mind what kind of customers to target for this launch to be successful.

Finally after many days in the waiting, Apple has finally started offering Unlocked iPhone 4S for the United States Online Stores along with the roll- out of the next phase of countries in the iPhone 4S roll-out yesterday.

The 16GB version of the unlocked iPhone 4S would cost  $649 while the 32GB and the 64GB version of the iPhone 4S would cost $749 and $849 respectively. All the phones are now being listed with 1-2 weeks of shipping time.

So those who don’t want to go with the standard 2 years contract with a specific carrier can now get the phone for the above mentioned price and can use it over any GSM network, though one have to keep in mind that these phones wouldn’t work with the CDMA carriers but only for the GSM Wireless networks.
