Question bringing a (legally) unlocked iPhone to NL

Hi, and apologies for using English,

My wife and I will be living in Amsterdam from January to July of 2011. If we want to have iPhone 4's while we're there, what is our best option?

1) Buy a new pair of iPhone 4s from (or another carrier) with a 1-year contract? Then break the contract after 7 months, and bring the phones back to the USA and try to jailbreak/unlock them so we can then use the phones with T-Mobile.usa...


2) Buy a new pair of legally unlocked iPhones from Canada, bring them with us to NL, and get a SIM from a Dutch carrier that gives us phone and data on a month-to-month basis. Then bring the phones back home and use with AT&T or whoever.

If we try #2, what carrier do you recommend?

Definitely option 2! Also, in two weeks time all dutch carriers will be selling iphones and iPhone plans. There is an overview on this very website, i'll see if i can find it.
It's in dutch obviously, but you can use Google translate or some service like that.

Edit: and here it is!

My advise would be to buy them in Canada. They're cheap there. And they are unlocked.

If you buy a dutch iPhone it'll be locked. And T-Mobile, for example, charges 70 euros after 6 months for an official unlock.
I'm not even sure if you will be able to sign a contract...

And if you have a chance, bring an extra iPhone 4. I would like one ;-)

Option 2 (no warranty issues)

for 6 months you cant sign a contract with a provider here. So I would say use Vodafone Prepaid, internet cost €9.50 a month and then also the minutes charged for calling and sending sms.
