I'm wanting to buy the iphone 5 in the USA for use in South Africa, but have to know if it has been "unlocked" for South Africa yet. It is being launched in this country on 15 or 16 December 2012.
There is no such thing as "unlocking for a country".
Devices are either carrier locked or unlocked.
Purchase the device in the country it will be used in.
Warranty is NOT International.
Check your local online Apple store to see if the unlocked iPhone is available in your country.
