There's the Nexus S that comes unlocked however.

 

If not, then I'd say the best solution is to buy an unlock code from a third party. It's alot cheaper then the 50$+ price that the carriers will charge you.

If you buy the phone from Fido at full price, have a Fido account in good standing and wait 90 days, they will unlock it for $50 extra.
