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.
You should move countries to get a better phone deal?
