Of, if it's actully required to do the job, tell the employer they need to pay for it, making it their phone. If they won't, get a job a a place that isn't abusive.
There are always
options. Not always better
options, but better is a matter of opinion. If having an unlocked phone really
matters to you, there are
options. Move to a place with more competition, get a job with an employer who will handle the phone, whatever. If it isn't that important to you, then it isn't that important to you
