If you bought it from a Rogers store or retailer, no, it is NOT unlocked. If you want an unlocked S3, you have to buy it from a third party reseller (ie amazon.com/.ca, expansys, etc.). Any phone you purchase from a phone company will be locked to that company, regardless if you pay full price or not. Plus, you get stuck with all of their bloatware, and the phone gets updated whenever they feel like releasing the updates.

If you're paying that price, I would get an unlocked unbranded phone. You'll get updates faster, like way faster..
