Using US Sim to unlock device?

I requested and received an unlock code from Rogers  for an S6(speedy and painless service using the chat function, was much appreciated). I have a great affiliate plan through my wife's employer so don't plan on leaving anytime soon but

I will be travelling to Florida soon and planned on picking up a pre-paid SIM when I arrive in lieu of paying roaming charges. Does anyone know if a SIM from say AT&T or T-Mobile will work to unlock? Or should I borrow a friends non-Rogers SIM and do the unlock before I go?

Thanks for any help.

Hello @Willhound,


Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums Robot Happy!


I don't see why a US SIM wouldn't work in this scenario. Unlocking an Android device requires a non-Rogers SIM card. But if you want to save yourself a hassle of any issues coming up while you're on vacation than you may as well complete the unlock process while you're still here?

Have a good time!
