    Depends - do you want to root and ROM? Do you want to be able to switch carriers? Do you want to be able to use it in Europe? Do you want carrier bloat on it?

    You have to make 3 lists - international, Canada and totally unlocked.

    Then add pros and cons to each list and you'll see which is your best option.

    If all you're going to do is use it in Canada as it comes, plus any non-rooted apps you're going to add, buy a legitimate phone the cheapest way you can. You won't gain anything out of paying for additional bands or for having an unlocked phone.

    I left your email as it seems it is your prefered method to hear back. I did break the link so it is readable by a human, but not scraper sites. You wouldn't want spammers grabbing your address and filling your inbox with worthless emails. That is why it is generally a good idea not to post it on a public forum like this. If you have any questions, click my username and send me a PM.

    Ps. I did the same in the other place you posted it.;)

    There's a small handful posted here:

    To be honest, it's not a bad camera, just not the best. If you have plenty of light, it works well. In low light, it's pretty unusable.

    I would recommend GSM unless you know your not going to switch carriers and the carrier you want it on is CDMA like me with Boost Mobile.
