I like the European model...

You buy a phone, you decide how to use it. If you buy as part of an X month contract, then the phone is yours at the end of that period and the provider is obliged to unlock it (for free).

This sounds like a good reason to buy a phone elsewhere and get a SIM-only deal for airtime.
