RE: Unlocking iPhone Thread

question for meowmix,

 

if i buy an iphone 5c off someone on usedvictoria which is locked by Rogers, how can i get it unlocked? Does the device itself have to be older than 90 days before Rogers can unlock it?

Also if the iPhone 5c was to be used on Fido, does it need to be unlocked?

 

Thanks

Hello ruri


You will need to contact Rogers, have them add the IMEI number on yout account and then ask for it to be unlocked.

Yes it does. U will need to contact fido about that. U need a Fido account for it.

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

Hello, I am in Italy with an Iphone 4S locked from Rogers. I left Canada in august 2011, never been able to use this phone.

How can I have it unlocked?

I don't think Rogers can have any wish to keep it lock after more then two years...

 

Apparently there is a way to do it because someone offer the service (but for about 200$!!!).

 

Thank you very much

Hello matteobar

The only way Rogers will do it is if u are in Canada and if u have a Rogers wireless account active. They don't unlock phones if ur in another country even tho the phone is locked to Rogers.

Dear Rogers Staff,

 

I purchased my iphone from a rogers user and when i updated to the latest software the phone was locked to your network i have the imei number thats how i knew it was purchased from your end i have no idea about the purchasing details of this iphone , so i was enquiring about whether i am eligible for unlocking it for free or not.

 

Best Regards,

For them to unlock the phone, it needs to be on a rogers account, etc.

If you dont have this... unfortunately your best bet for unlocking it would be via a 3rd party site.

Hello thephantom75


The only way Rogers will unlock their devices is if u live in Canada and the IMEI number is connected to a Rogers wireless account. If u bought the phone outright even then u would need to be in Canada to do it.

Sadly u can only unlock it via Online or a store where u live which unlocks devices and see if they can do it. Rogers Sadly can not do nothing right now:(

Hello Waheedsimon

No one on here can help u. Especially on Christmas.. If you need a unlock code from Rogers, the device u have must be attached to a Rogers account. ( IMEI number must be on a Rogers wireless account) and or if u bought it full price.

The unlocking fee is $50 still from Rogers unless the lowered it but that can be discussed with the rep. Give them a call or visit one of their locations tomorrow.
