Ok so I have been reading a ton about the new iphone trying to figure out if it would suit me and my needs. I travel alot overseas and when I heard that the 4s would be a world phone I was stoked. But then reading today I noticed that all carriers would be locking the sim card slot to not allow local sims overseas, forcing you to use the expensive international roaming plans.
My question is if anyone knows if jailbreaking the phone (when it happens) will bypass this and allow me to use it how I need to, with local sim cards. This is a deciding factor for me and this phone so I'm crossing my fingers it will work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Is it not an option to buy directly from the Apple Store unlocked? As far as I'm aware you can do this from November in the US. I travel a lot too therefore I opted to order both my iPhone 4 last year and now my iPhone 4S direct from Apple.
