I am facing a choice regarding choosing a provider and telephone in Toronto, ON.

What I want is and Android phone with the possibility of upgrading it to Android 2.2.

I can either buy an unlocked phone myself or take a subsides one from the provider. Depending on what are the advantages of the first option such as the possibility to negotiate a better plan, no long-terms contracts etc.

Now the options (and questions are):

1. I can buy Nexus One unlocked from Google store, but the issue will be which provider to chose? Would I be able to have a nice voice and data plan without signing a 3 years contract? Do they all sell a SIM-Card only if you come to them with yout own phone? I know that in Bell you need to buy a phone anyway! In case it is a prepaid (pay-as-you-go), do they have reasonable price for data? And again, the question is which provider?

2. Or I can go for Motorola Milestone, locked from Telus, but would it be possible to upgrade it to Android 2.2?

3. Any other Android 2.2 enabled (or with a confirmed possibility to upgrade) subsidised phones from any other provider?

I would really appreciate your ideas with this regard…
