You can easily get a Sipura SIP adapter that is unlocked. I bought
a Sipura SPA-2000 off ebay for $60 a couple months ago, and it has worked
great (actually, I understand that several of the Linksys SIP adapters
are using the Sipura IP internally). If you insist on a Linksys adapter,
I've seen the unlocked versions (-NA) selling on ebay frequently
