Well it took less than a day for Sprint to back off on that clearly poor decision, and tonight put up a blog post explaining that it had chosen to remove the limitation based on "customer feedback."

Where do I shop for unlocked phones?

46
unlocked phones

I like the idea of buying an unlocked phone, but where can I find them?

That's a pretty common question we hear anytime we talk about unlocked phones. It's understandable, considering the carrier phone dominated model we use here in the United States. While some of us — the people who spend time reading about smartphones on the Internet — know where to look when we want to buy a phone without involving AT&T or Verizon or any other service provider, most people go to their carrier's store (or a third party vendor for their carrier like Best Buy) when they want to purchase their new phone.

That works for a lot of people. I'm always talking about the reasons you would want to buy an unlocked phone, but a lot of us aren't planning on switching carriers any time soon, and want the convenience of walking into a retail shop with money, and walking out with a new phone. That's cool — do what works best for you. But if you're wanting to go unlocked, and need some pointers about where to find your next, we're here to help.
