    I need advice, is it worth it to buy an iPhone 5 unlocked and paying full price?

    Apple Canada is not selling Unlocked phones at the stores, only selling it online and the wait it 3-4 weeks!

    I am not eligible to upgrade unless I pay $280 early upgrade fee, phone costs $179 and I will then be locked for another 3 years without a new phone.

    I don't want to renew for another 3 years just yet, so I have 2 options.

    Buying an Unlocked phone through Apple Online and wait a month...
    Buying the phone LOCKED to Rogers and pay full price to avoid renewing my contract and no new phone for almost 3 years! But this way, I can get the new phone tomorrow if the Apple store still has some available!!

    By the way, I have the iPhone 4

    Rumors that the VZW iPhone 5 is sim unlocked out of the box (although not LTE compatible with AT&T, Rogers, Bell, Telus...)

    If you have the spare money to buy the unlocked iPhone 5, why not? If you ever need to travel, you can go pre-paid.
