Rumor : Unlocked iPhone 4 to hit U.S. this weekend

The Apple rumor mill is grinding away already this week, with a report that an unlocked iPhone 4 will become an option for U.S. customers in Apple stores on Wednesday.

The rumor comes courtesy of Twitter user @chronicwire, who apparently set up the account about a week ago and quickly started tweeting all kinds of purported iPhone leaks and rumors.

The latest is that four specific models the MC603 (16GB, black) MC604 (16GB, white) MC605 (32GB, black) and MC606 (32GB, white) have already landed unlocked and retail-ready on U.S. shores.

I've seen reports claiming that @chronicwire is a "well-known source" and that the unlocked iPhone rumor is considered "certain," but haven't been able to divine the basis for either, especially for a source that apparently materialized from thin air a week ago.

It should also be noted that @chronicwire has been changing his or her story lately, intitially reporting that Apple would be announcing a MacBook Air refresh for back to school on Wednesday.

Nonetheless, the notion of an unlocked iPhone being sold in Apple stores isn't unprecedented.
