Sure, buy an unlocked version. All carrier branded units will not be bootloader unlockable. I have read that 3 branded in the UK has the ability to unlock the bootloader but the safest bet is non-carrier branded.

I can confirm that in Norway at least Telenor is allowing unlocking of the bootloader. Word I have heard is that here, none of the carriers lock their bootloaders, or at least with the Z2 none of them are removing the ability to unlock.
