What is a Apple iPad 4 9.7" (2012) (16GB White) SIM-free phone?

A SIM is the small microchip which contains information such as your settings and personal data, including contacts and photos etc. Without a SIM card, your handset is an empty shell waiting to be activated. A SIM effectively powers your handset.
Most mobile phone contracts include both a handset and a SIM, which covers your connectivity, calls, texts and mobile data. However, it is possible to separate the SIM and the handset and go for either a handset deal or SIM-free deal (which are effectively the same thing) or buy the Apple iPad 4 9.7" (2012) (16GB White) handset up front and outright.

What are the benefits of buying a Apple iPad 4 9.7" (2012) (16GB White) SIM-free phone?
Buying a Apple iPad 4 9.7" (2012) (16GB White) SIM-free phone is overall much cheaper than the other, often costly, mobile contract options. Plus, you'll have more flexibility with your phone plan, as generally your phone won't be locked to a specific network. This means you're free to shop around different networks to buy a SIM, and you can change your SIM more often. (It is, however, important you check the small print of your handset and check it isn't dependent on a specific SIM card.)
A SIM-free handset means you're going to need a SIM to go with it.

Generally, you should be free to buy a Apple iPad 4 9.7" (2012) (16GB White) SIM-free handset from any network such as EE, O2 and Vodafone, but this is not a given. Don't forget to read the small print when you buy a handset.
Unlocked Apple iPad 4 9.7" (2012) (16GB White) SIM-free phones?
