 All telco are the same in the world.
 If you get a locked phone with contract,the phone cost will be cheaper.
 You just cannot use other network SIM cards,roaming are expensive.

You can most definitely purchase an AT&T-locked one, provided that you plan on keeping the phone with AT&T and have no intentions of switching over to another GSM carrier. If that is not the case, I would strongly recommend purchasing the unlocked model even if it is significantly more expensive.
