How To Find Out Whether Your iPhone Is SU Or FU

Find out whether your iPhone Is SU or FU. In overall, based on the carriers, the iPhone is categorized into two main models which are iPhone SU and FU. What is iPhone SU and iPhone FU?

In this post, I will try to explain briefly about the two models of iPhone to clear the different between each of the iPhone so you will understand the difference.

iPhone SU

What is iPhone SU? SU is abbreviation of Software Unlock which means the iPhone is bonded with contract by a certain operator. If you buy this iPhone's model then you will automatically use the SIM card of the operator. For example, if your device is AT&T based iPhone thus you have signed the contract with AT&T to use all the services the carrier is offering.

And that means you can not use another SIM card, unless you unlock your iPhone first, therefore this model is cheaper because of the contract. In other word iPhone SU is a locked device.

iPhone FU

What is iPhone FU? FU means Factory Unlock, differs from SU, this model is free from any contracts from any carriers. You can use any SIM card for your iPhone FU. But it's more expensive since there is no contract attached to it.

If you are a traveler, then iPhone FU is your best option.
