    Are you getting the phone from AT&T for 200? In order for the subsidized price of $200 you have to sign a 2 year contract with att.:confused: So there is no point of unlocking.:confused: I think the cheapest att plan is 70 a month.

    If you currently have a plan with another provider like tmobile, you could buy an iphone off ebay or something, unlock it, and use tmobile.

    If you need a new contract and think the iPhone contracts are okay then go ahead. If you can find a cheaper contract, it might be worth it to buy an iPhone off ebay, which will cost you upto 2 or 3 times as much, but then save money in the long run with the cheaper contract.

    o ok. i am not sure then.

    I know that here in the US you must sign a contract to get the phone for $200, and its probably the same there. All unlocking does is allows the phone to be used on other networks. If you use Rogers or Fido you dont need to unlock
