Differences between iPhone SE Models (A1662, A1723, A1724)

The Apple iPhone SE has been officially available now. It might have the same design as the iPhone 5S, however, there are some significant upgrades inside. We have a more powerful CPU, GPU, more RAM, longer battery life and 12MP iSight camera. The iPhone SE is an attractive choice for big-phone haters because they will be able to use the phone comfortably with one hand now.

The phone was originally launched in March 2016 with 16 GB and 64 GB of storage configurations. Then, the storage was upgraded to 32GB and 128GB one year later.

Before hitting an Apple Store, you should be aware that the iPhone SE comes in several model numbers and they support different cellular and wireless networks. Therefore, there is a chance that you won’t be able to use the phone in some other countries. The model number can be found on the box or on the back of your iPhone. In the case of iPhone SE, it can be A1662, A1723 or A1724. Let’s check out the differences.

Is the MLLV2LL/A model A1662 considered a sim free unlocked version that will work on any GSM or CDMA network?

MLLV2LL/A is NOT unlocked; as noted above, this is a T-Mobile assigned device, but it should still work for most US networks if is does not have a subsidy lock.

I’m Indian user then which model is preferable for me

Go ahead with model number A1723 (Sprint)

I’am suggesting this to you because this supports more LTE bands which would be highly compatiable in India (Including top networks like AirTel, Vodafone, Idea, Reliance Jio, Etc)

This model is currently available in India

Want to trade in and wonder if it was worth anything

So will the A1723 (global version) bought, say in Asia (other than China), work in the USA as well?

Yes, this also will work with most US networks, so long as it does not have a subsidy lock.

How and where can i buy SE sim free model 1723?

On US online store

Unfortunately Apple US website has some restrictions in giving choice to users in selecting a model number.

I tried contacting Apple support several times and they could not help me out 🙁

But, you have an option of buying the A1723 model.

All you have to do is order for an unlocked version of phone through Apple US website and choose picking it up from Apple store.

Ask your friends who is in US to pick the phone from Apple store on behalf of you and while picking up the phone, ask them to ask for model #A1723 instead of A1662.

You can also buy a Apple gift card and send it to your friend via email and ask them to buy the phone bearing model #A1723 directly from the Apple store.

Let me know the color and capacity you are looking for so I can provide you the exact part number of the model #A1723

I asked my cousins in Seattle, Washington to buy me an iPhone SE Sim-free. When i asked them to check the model it is A1662. Can i use it here in the Philippines?

Please respond to this message, i have the same question. Thanks

Yes, A1662 works globally but not on all network bands.

It is safe to buy A1723 becuase it supports more LTE bands.

As you all aware, more LTE bands means faster Internet Access :))

Absolutely you can use the A1662 in Philippines.

A1662 support is for usa only. pls check the website of apple.com/iphone/LTE

I have an A1662 MLMD2LL/A. 2 questions:
:: will it work well in the UK and EU?
:: is there a reason the model number in my phone settings says NLMD2LL/A?

I also have the same issue.my iphone model start with NLM. What that.

Yes it will if its unlocked

Dont worry about the part number as long as you got correct model no

For the model iPhone SE A1724 exclusively sold in China it says “the only difference is that it doesn’t support CDMA EV‑DO Rev. A (800, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)”

What does that mean? If I buy the phone in China model iPhone SE A1724, what will I lose? not having CDMA EV-DO…. If I leave China and move to Europe, will I have connection problems?

Should I wait and buy it in Hong-kong instead ?

better wait to buy in hkg. europe are using GSM, as HKG. while china is CDMA

Why does my apple se model a1723
Doesn’t have an Applepay?

Viraj Ashtekar says

Will the Model A1662 work in INDIA ??

Yes it will… But do not expect your phone to support all LTE bands in India

I will be in New York next month. I am going to buy model A1723 (sim free) at AppleStore.
I know that model for Sprint (CDMA). What limitations does A1723 have for using in Europe by GSM, LTE or CDMA (lock etc).
If It has limitations how can I solve this problem in official way.
Thank you.

1) Is there any difference between the “Sprint” MLM32LL/A and “Canada” MLLP2VC/A. These are both iPhone SE A1723, 16GB, in silver.

2) Is there any confirmed way of buying a A1723 model in the US, that isn’t network locked? I was in an Apple Store in the US recently, and they were willing to sell me the “Sprint” model, but I now realise that it might have been locked to Sprint. I need the phone to work in Australia, on Telstra.

Manish Mediratta says

Dear all, Hello! MLMF2LL/A is Verizon one.. Will it work for else GSM networks like AT&T or overseas for any GSM 4G players?

I have a similar question. I have an MLMF2LL/A for Verizon but am switching to T-Mobile. Will it work as well as the T-Mobile model or will there be some service drops?

Does the A1662 model work with China’s 4G network?

Can I unlock a serial number MLLL2LL/A to use it out of the United States?

I have a model MLMF2LL/A which stated above is a Verizon phone. This phone had no sim card.
Will it work with AT&T or only Verizon

K Phillips says

I have an AT&T Model 1662. It is unlocked. will it operate with full functionality on any network? I am planning on going to Japan. I would like to get the full use out of it while I am there.

Mine is actually a model NLY32LL/A. What does that indicate?

NLY32LL/A. It’s a replacement unit given under warranty. You should only have that model number if you got it through apple care or second hand. It can be used like any other iPhone SE

I’m close to purchase a 64 GB version of iPhone SE in Romania.
the shop has 4 versions listed with these P/Ns: MLXP2RR/A, MLXQ2RR/A, MLM72RR/A & MLM62RR/A.

are those still some breed of A1723 or should I get worried afterwards?

I HAVE A iPhone SE A1723 MLM32LL/A. Sprint is my carrier but I am not under contract. Can you tell me what carriers this phone will work with? I am looking for a no contract/prepaid plan. I have done some extensive research and I still am gathering conflicting information as to what carriers this phone will work on. Can you please help me

Can the A1724 be used in West Africa Ghana?

So will 64GB Silver SIM-free MLME2LL/A work on Sprint? It is factory unlocked.

Can I use the A1662 in Spain? It’s lacking the LTE 7, I don’t know how much that would affect me.

Mataa Mafelomale says

Did you deliberately leave out the 128gb?

There was no 32GB and 128GB configuration at launch. The 128GB was released 1 year later and I’ve added new models to the list.

What iPhone model will be compatible for using in Peru. If I was to use SIM card.

Andrew Hunter says

What about the iPhone SE A1723 MP872J/A?

If you take a barely-compatible version of this phone to a major city centre in a foreign country, your odds of getting good signal strength are still on your side. If you are heading to a small town or village, take the effort to get the right version!
My wife uses a A1723 iPhone SE (unlocked and handed down from a relative’s Rogers LTE / UMTS / GSM plan after the relative got a new iPhone XR), but it still works on my wife’s Telus LTE / HSPA+ network (mostly bands 2 & 5 instead of 2 & 4). Home signal strength locally is Fair, but in Las Vegas it gets 4 bars wall-to-wall, roaming on AT&T.
Meanwhile my own handed down phone from Venezuela (bought on Craigslist) also gets “fair” signal on the same Telus network at home, and 4 bars wall-to-wall signal in Las Vegas, but mine roams onto T-Mobile there instead.
When we took the same phones to a Telus covered border town (Niagara Falls), both barely-compatible phones often tried to roam onto USA networks (even walking past a US Customs pre-clearance room at the Toronto Airport tried to roam), and had to be set to “Home Only” to avoid roaming charges even several miles from the border there.

Всем известно, что существуют два вида продукции и называем мы их — «серый» и «белый» товар. Особенно это касается самых известных и популярных брендов, таких как Apple. В этой статье мы детально разберемся в этом вопросе. Вы узнаете, как не стать жертвой мошенников и недобросовестных продавцов, а также, как отличить «серый» iPhone от «белого».

Для начала выясним что есть что.

Что такое «Серый» iPhone.

Простыми словами, это iPhone, которые нелегально попадают в Россию. Такие смартфоны не предназначены для нашей страны.

Что такое «Белый» iPhone.

Это легально ввезенные в Россию смартфоны Apple, прошедшие таможенный контроль и имеющие сертификацию Росстандарт.

Далее, разобравшись в понятиях, мы расскажем вам, как такие смартфоны можно самостоятельно определить.

Как определить «Белый» и «Серый» iPhone.

Необычно низкая цена. Магазин MacTime регулярно проводит интересные акции и конкурсы, которые очень выгодные и по ним есть возможность приобрести Айфон по более низкой цене. Но, даже тогда, «Серый» смартфон стоит дешевле.

Наличие следующих знаков на коробке:

РСТ – Росстандарт – говорит о том, что телефон «Белый»;

Знак Росстандарта

ЕАС – Евразийский союз – так же говорит о том, что Айфон «Белый».

Знак ЕАС

В меню операционной системы iOS есть Русский язык.

Документация в коробке на Русском языке. Если это не так, или текст на документации напечатан не качественно, то значит в ваших руках либо «Серый», либо поддельный Айфон.

Гарантия на iPhone не меньше 12 месяцев. На сайте Apple, по серийному номеру можно это определить. Сам серийный номер вы найдете в меню Настройки > Основные > Об этом устройстве.

Сервисное обслуживание

Проверка права на обслуживание и поддержку

Проверьте своё устройство на гарантию от Apple. Для этого перейдите по ссылке. Далее введите серийный номер в соответствующее поле, затем введите капчу и нажмите «Продолжить».

В артикуле/модели iPhone должны содержатся следующие две последние латинский буквы перед слэш: RR, RP, RS, RU. Их наличие говорит о том, что смартфон производился для России. Вот пример артикула для Apple iPhone X 256GB (серый космос) для России – MQAF2RU/A.
