Well you have to buy a phone to get a plan.

The contract only says that you will give us 2 years of your money and we (the carrier) will give you a subsidized phone.

If you buy a phone at msrp, you only need them to start a plan for you. meaning you CAN unlock it because the phone you have is not subsidized.

I am not sure if you can start with an open normal contract with buying the phone out right with a new contract.

But who would drop that kind of money

The phone is ours but we can't modify it to use it on another carrier.
I gotcha

Yeah, a privilege I bought and paid for and should be able to do whatever the hell I want with.

Its like buying a Tacoma from one dealer and not being able to trade it in at another.

You can't usually be sued or fined over technical details you don't know. Thus, to be enforceable, I suspect the carrier would have to advise you (prior to purchase) of the phone's locked condition and any prohibition they might have about modifications. Further, my phone (purchased outright - $200) was purchased prior to the law, so that might also impact enforceability. Otherwise, I could probably sue the carrier for selling me a defective phone.
