    So far, I know of:

    $567.50 [BACKORDERED] - Negri Electronics (HTC 8X Windows Phone 8 (Unlocked) (Blue))
    $625 - eBay (HTC 8X Blue (Factory Unlocked) Windows Phone 8, Dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon | eBay)

    I'm going to bid on a few on eBay, but does anyone know of a cheap, but reliable, place to get the 8X?

    Keep doing what you're doing. Check Amazon, NewEgg, GSM Nation, MobileCityOnline...etc... That what I do to get the best price on an unlocked GSM phone from a reliable vendor. You're on the right track

    Have you checked Clove? I ordered my Black 8X with them 10 days ago and received it in 4 days. They are based on the UK and the phone really made its way to Mexico in no time :D

    Orange.ro has the 8X (blue only) for about $570. Orange.co.uk might have it as well.

    I paid 379 for mine and got 10 credit thrown in. So 369 for the handset. Which is damn cheap I think, for the UK anyway. That was at a Phones4U shop in town.

    Sorry, I'm in the U.S. and am looking to use it on T-Mobile (their $30 plan).
    I will be travelling to Canada next month, and abroad during the summer. Might be doing an exchange program too, so having an unlocked phone is really important. Is there a difference between UK version vs. US vs. any other ones in terms of connecting to the networks in the USA? If there's anything I should watch out for, that'd be great too!

    Thanks for everyone's replies so far!

    If you are buying an imported phone make sure you find out the origin of the phone. My HTC 7 Trophy is from Germany and my Samsung Galaxy S2 is from Greece. Whenever I up date either phone it goes back to it's native language. If you got an import from asia or the middle east it maybe real hard to figure out how to get it back to English.

    Some people will flash their imported phone to a different country code. I haven't done that because there is always the chance of bricking your phone when you flash it.

    The negri device won't work on TMO's 3g, you need to make sure it supports the 1700 band under the 3g label.

    You may actually want to go with the rogers Lumia 920. It's pentaband I've heard, and I think you can get it unlocked on Negri for ~700. You're going to be paying a lot regardless, though. If you aren't keen on 3g then you're fine with the negri one.

    Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 (Rogers) (Unlocked) (Black) this will work everywhere in the world, except Japan I believe.

    You may also want to check and see if the Ebay one is 1700 for 3g as well. They don't have the UMTS bands lists.

    You may just want to call Tmobile, tell them your story, and ask them if you buy an off contract TMO device if they can give you the unlock code.
