I can confirm that rogers will also not unlock an iphone even if I the contract is transferred to someone else
and I longer am with them, basically you have a $500 paperweight or you have to by another plan through rogers.
I feel this unlocking policy was a good thing for rogers to retain existing customers. I have been dealing rogers over the years and i am extremely dissatisfied with their customer service, but they are huge company an deal with thousands of calls every day so i see the reality of what it is.
I can confirm that rogers will unlock iphones but just a meowmix has stated certain conditions have to be met. They unlocked an iphone 3g for me and confirmed that another iphone 3g was whitelisted. I have a mature contract right now up for renewal in may 2012 some time. My account is in good standing. And the last condition is that there has to be no outstanding contract on the phone in question. I will try to get there unlocking department to unlock an iphone 4 that i just recently purchased off of kijiji but i have a feeling that this phone is tied to a contract. Maybe i can get apple to unlock it because i have a bill of sale.
They did unlock an iphone 4 32g for me 2 days ago. I told them the situation (phone bought off kijiji, no idea of history of phone)
So i told him that this phone might be tied to a contract and that would be the only limiting factor that would not allow for unlocking
under their policy. He told me it has more to do with the how your account stands with rogers. And they did unlock it (via IMEI Whitelisting)
1. My contract with rogers is a mature 3 year contract. Up for renewal.
2. My account is in good standing. No outstanding balance.

To those who have phones locked to Rogers who live overseas: Just wanted to clarify something for you. The issue at hand is that Rogers needs a reliable way to collect the $50 for the unlock.
If you want to unlock a phone, you need an account with Rogers and the phone needs to be off-contract. Why? Cause they need an account to bill the $50 to.
1) Sign up for a Rogers account. You can sign up for 1 day and get pay as you go if you want. You just need an account. Phone in and pay $50 which will be billed to the account and you're good. You do need Canadian ID or a Canadian SIN to get a Rogers account, which is probably a barrier in most of these cases.
2) Find somebody else with an account and get them to phone in for you. Anybody with a Rogers account can unlock ANY iphone locked to Rogers as long as the contract is over and paid up, and they pay $50.
Forget to correct one other misconception: You do not need to be the original owner of the phone. You just need to have a Rogers account. Rogers confirmed this for me a few minutes ago by phone. However, if the contract originally attached to that phone is still active, or if the original owner cancelled early but never paid the ECF, then no dice.
