    Then when you get your phone you will have to go through the activation process and you are all set to go.

    Some of the other sites are reporting that it must be obtained from the carrier. Hope that's not true.

    If you bought it unlocked through the Apple Canada website, then no it will not come with a SIM card. At least that is what the apple store says. At least according to the apple website:


    About the unlocked iPhone.

    The unlocked iPhone includes all the features of iPhone but without a contract commitment. You can activate and use it on the supported GSM wireless network of your choice. The unlocked iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 will not work with CDMA-based carriers. An unlocked iPhone 5 may not support LTE networks in all other countries; contact service providers for details.
    If you dont want a multiyear service contract or if you prefer to use a local carrier when traveling abroad, the unlocked iPhone is the best choice. It arrives without a SIM card, so youll need an active SIM card from any supported GSM carrier worldwide. To start using it, simply insert the SIM card into the slot on your iPhone and turn it on by pressing and holding the On/Off button for a few seconds. Then follow the onscreen instructions to set up your iPhone.

    Or this above, but that should be obvious if you buy an unlocked device.

    Thats the only way you can buy them from the apple website in Canada. Because the original poster said he was on Rogers, I just assumed thats what he was buying.

    Sort of. Apple was trying to push a software based virtual SIM card.
