yes, unlocked phone is pricey, and not normal-user friendly. Its almost an attitude rather than a necessary for most users.
But, still, few user would think about buy a phone that require them to switch network. In this case, extra $200 and freedom of picking and choosing ur networks might not be that bad, consider u have to pay $500(phone)+service termination fee (up to $200)+cingular activation fee $36.
the last two phones i bought were unlocked, and i'm thinking of getting another (rizr).
I would never buy locked phone.
I can maybe understand carriers locking those cheap $100 and less phones. But if I am spending $500 or $1000 I think phone should be unlocked. Buying locked phone is like buying TV that works with only one cable provider.
So carriers: why not remove phone subsidy and instead reduce price of plans?
