    Nope, they wont let you leave the store without paying for a contract.

    You have to sign a contract in order to purchase an iphone. There's no way around it.

    If you can get your hands on an iphone and it is unlocked similar to the first generation ones then you should have no problem using it in Canada. It'll just function as if it were a regular phone. There may be a third-party app available to block data or you could probably call your service provider and ask them to do it.
