yep will need unlocking. Fleabay's your best bet, the i607 ( at&t version with no wifi or front camera) used to cost me $5 to unlock.
you get an 8 digit code. quite a complex unlock process on the i607 - never done an i600 - but the vendor usually send a sheet of emailed instructions. You have to change band to auto and other stuff or it will only search for the original network etc.
