Speculation: iPhone SIM-Free? Not in this life time

Why wouldn’t Apple sell an iPhone SIM free? Many people around the world would not wait a second before placing an order to get the iPhone. But according to the rumors that I have read lately, part of Apple’s agreement with the Telecom companies (i.e. Orange France, O2 England, and Vodaphone in Germany) is to receive a 10% of the revenue from those who would buy an iPhone. So for Apple, the revenue potential is not only coming from the expensive hardware (I paid, I know) but also from its usage.

If you think about this, this is a brilliant move. So why allowing iPhone SIM free were Apple cannot collect? This is why, in my opinion, there would not be an iPhone SIM free, and this is also the reason why Apple is chasing those who claim they have unlocked the iPhone.
