Default Unlocking a 8700C for use on Rogers in Toronto

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking at buying an 8700C from the states, which is locked to work on the Cingular network. I prefer the look of this model over my current 8700r with Rogers. Where is a good place to purchase one and once purchased, is it true that if I get it unlocked that it willonly function as a phone and not work for data services? I was told that further configuration would be required to be able to use data services and that it is a complex operation and you need software to do it.
