So sad. Your boy “Lionel at Dell” has tweeted to let you know that just because you paid full-retail price for a Dell Streak — $549 — that doesn’t mean you can take it to any network you want. The tweet reads:

Lots of folks are asking about the $549 version of #dellstreak. To be clear, it will not be unlocked. It is SIM-locked to AT&T.

There were hopes that since Dell, a third-party manufacturer, was also selling the phone via its online store paying $549 might score you an unlocked version. But alas… not. Anyone disappointed by this, or was it what you were expecting?
