Why the term “fully unlocked iPhone” is somewhat misleading

We don’t really know how this term came about, but we suspect that it has something to do with this unfortunate fact: Just because an iPhone is unlocked, it doesn’t mean that it will work on every network. As a matter of fact, we wrote an article all about whether unlocked iPhones work on every network.
