I'll be heading down to Chicago next month, and I was wondering if there was a way to get a cheap iPhone down there and have it unlocked for use in Canada on Zoomer.

I've heard you can get cheap prepaid ones, but they cannot be unlocked?

It depends on what you consider cheap.

T-Mobile has a free phone promotion if you buy a $150 reload card. The free phones include,

LG Aristo™
Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime
ZTE Avid Trio
Coolpad Catalyst
Coolpad Defiant
T-Mobile® REVVL®

https://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/web-to-retail

AT&T has a $350 6s. https://www.att.com/cellphones/iphone/i ... sku8700285

AT&T requires you to have six months of service before they will unlock the phone for you.

T-Mobile will unlock the phone as long as you use the reload card on your T-Mobile number the device is associated with.

You could look on craigslist for a Verizon-issued phone. All are unlocked .. it's a question of bands that your Canadian carriers access. All my phones are iPhones that I bought through Verizon on various promos that they carried (without early termination fees attached).
