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.
