Hi, I have a iphone 4 (Rogers carrier) and I use the Pay As You Go prepaid option (for about 3 months). I was just wondering if it was possible to unlock my cell phone when I don't have a monthly plan/contract.
Hi my phone is already out of contract and im here in the philippines. i wasnt unable to use local network here they said i need to unlock my phone and get like a code inorder for me to unlock the phone. Kindly advice.
Unfortunately the only way Rogers will unlock your device is if its a Rogers locked device & you or someone has a Rogers wireless account with the device IMEI number added into the account for more 90 or more.
Your only option at this point is to unlock it via third party unlocking sites or stores in the city you are in.
I am just experiencing the same thing even though the phone was owned by a previous customer Rogers still won't provide the unlock code untill I am with them for 90 days as well. It's a typical money grab by a short sighted company who's fails to understand that if they were decent and accomodating I probably would stay with them as a carrier however now I will just use the cheapest montly plan they have and wait the 90 days. Then goodbye Rogers and hello anyone that they don't own.
Those are the rules tho. You need to have the IMEI number on YOUR Rogers wireless account for 90 days or more. Remember the IMEI number of the phone can be still listed on the first buyers account & they could have reported stolen while you are trying to unlock it. Many securities & other things play a roll here.
Actually Bell has the same 90 days rule & so does Telus.. If you search on Google or their sites, you will see it on their websites. So its not only Rogers. Its most if not all carriers have this rule. They have the 90 day policy in affect due to the CRTC ruling.
Blame the CRTC not Rogers.
