No.  The FreeRunner works on any GSM network.  I own a Neo 1973, though I 
never used it as my primary phone, as T-Mobile coverage where I am at is too 
spotty. The only other GSM provider is AT&T, who I'd prefer to avoid on the 
principle that they screwed the public once and will likely do it again ASAP.

Still, if you are with or can get good service from a GSM provider in the USA, 
the FreeRunner will work fine, and it's as open source as you get.
