With Fido's new plan structure, it is promoting users to use their Standard Plan with BYOD to get a 10% price reduction. I've giving some thought to it and decide the best value as a mobile consumer is to go m2m and BYOD to get the lowest monthly price.
And then it hit me.
Where do I buy a uncarrier brand new unlocked phone?
Many phone companies do not sell their phone through their website, instead opt for carriers to do the work of selling them through a contract, even if you decide to buy a phone outright, the phone is still either locked, (need to pay to unlock) or modded by the carrier.
I know where to buy iphones/Nexus/sony at retail.
But what about Nokia/Samsung/Motorola/LG/HTC in canada? Where can I get these brands unlocked, with factory warrenty? I don't want to go through ebay/craiglist/grey market stores if I want a valid warrenty.

OFF the top of my head the UK cost to unlock a phone Converts to LESS Than $50 CAN
