MetrobyT-mobile has iPhone 11 for $100 plus tax and $60 for first month plan. If you keep the service for 3 months you get a $50 gift card but Metro CSR says you get the gift card only if you stay on the $60 plan (otherwise you can downgrade to the $30 plan.)
All of my iPhones from Metro have unlocked automatically after 6 months plus ~1 week.
This is despite only paying for first month then putting in sock drawer. You can immediately unlock these by using the "white sim" available on eBay.
