To Buy Unlocked or to Not Buy Unlocked?
This is something I have been debating heavily over the past couple days. When Apple announced you could buy an unlocked device from them for the full price, at least in Canada, I really do not know what I should do. Help me decide what to get. I will be getting a 32gb black version either way.

Ya. The thing is. How long do I want to be with Rogers for. And I don't see the point of really getting it unlocked as I will upgrade each year, and by this time in a couple years, completely free of my robbers contract. I think I will just use my upgrade and get it for whatever that price may be.

I'm gonna buy unlocked too will help with resale and means I can sell after a year if I want to or when the nest one is out
a quick question - how will I get iPhone updates if I buy unlocked, will I get them direct from apple or do I have to tell my carrier I am using an iPhone on their network

Man. Why is this so hard. I can't come to a decision. The problem is I don't feel like paying 800 bucks for a phone. But yet, love the idea of unlocked. I think I will hold out until next years version to go unlocked. Then I will be 2 years through my Rogers contract and can buy out of it for a lower price.

sittin on the fence hurts
I'm of two minds on this, I have bought my last two iPhones for full price because I don't have a data plan on my account. I'm 90% of my day in Wifi so don't see why I need to pay extra for something I wont use that often. However whether I buy the unlocked or carrier phone I wont be switching from Fido, been with them for over 10 years. So either way I buy the phone I'm going to be paying my bill at the end of the month for the next 3 years and beyond so why not get something out of the deal? Why not get them to subsidize the phone?
