Canadians finally free from three-year contracts, data overages capped at $50

Starting December 2, 2013, Canadian carrier customers will be able to break it up after two instead of the usual three years without a penalty. Moreover, data overage charges can't be more than $50 a month with local consumption, or $100 when roaming abroad, letting you avoid those bill shocks we've all heard about...

I like the unlock after 90 day part. Wish we had something like that here in Merica'

we do have an option here in America. Sprint offers their international phones to be unlocked after 90 days. As long as your bill is up standing And no late fees.

Phones can be unlocked after 90 days. That's probably the thing I would be excited about considering I buy all my phones off contact. Congratulations Canada!

Here's the problem I find. If you decide to unlock your phone, the carrier will charge you to unlock it. If you buy the phone at full price without any subsidy, I would like for the carrier to provide the phone unlocked instead of having me to ask for it to be unlocked. They should require that all non-subsidised phones to be automatically unlocked.
