    The Nexus One IS unlocked, if you buy it for full price of $530.

    Its asking if you want AT&T or T-Mobile SUBSIDIZED versions, which come with a contract.

    Select the unlocked full price one that doesn't have the cellphone providers next to it!

    they're were 3 options tho.
    1 - tmob $530
    2 - att $530
    3 - tmob contract $179 (cant do that as not in usa)

    there were signal spec differences between 1 & 2

    They are ALL unlocked. The difference between the T-Mobile and at&t versions is there are two sets of 3g frequencies between the two versions. If your carrier is a GSM carrier, I'm assuming it is in the UK, find out what frequencies they use for 3g. Most likely it will be the at&t version if it's either of the two.

    Since you aren't getting a contract with an American provider, disregard the subsidized prices. Even if you got a subsidized phone its still unlocked, but the discount comes from signing a contract, the phone is the exact same if you get a contract or not.

    If your carrier uses different bands for 3g than either version, it doesn't matter which one you get, you just wont have 3g.
