Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

If you want Rogersto unlock it,you must meetcertain criteria and you must pay $50. The criteria include:

1.No contract on phone remaining
2.your account is in good standing
3.phone is in your device history(if you bought it from them it alreadyis)

Those are the policies. If you hate them then no ones fault seeing as Bell and Telus and Virgin have the same policy.

Nope, Telus policy differs in one key, but very critical way (your first point). Telus will unlock iPhones after 90 days on account, so you could still have as much as 33 months remaining on your contract and they will unlock the phone upon request for $50.

 

With Rogers you need to either pay your subsidy off, upgrade to a new phone or wait until you have a 3 year old dinosaur to unlock.

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

Well either way tho this is the Policy Rogers has. You can not override it or no one else at Rogers can. It sucks but as many other threads on here have said, this is the only way from Rogers to get a unlock code.

Also another way from Rogers will be that you need to show them you are leaving the country ( moving away) & they will unlock it for you. This method can only work if you show them you are really leaving.

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

You guys can unlock your iPhone4 through remote unlocking method. It is the safest, easiest and affordable method to unlock any iPhone.

I called the number, yes, they do that, it cost $50 the only catch the phone it self has to be 3 years old, it has nothing to do with your account and whether or not you are on the contact. So today a 3 years old iphone would be a 3GS... why would I want to unlock that?

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

Seriously, Rogers are brutal.  I am so upset with them, and I tell anyone that asks me about Rogers service what has happened to me.

 

Be really careful if you buy a phone from someone.  Rogers have a really backward retention policy and it totally screws people over.  

 

I bought a phone from someone after my 3G was nearly dead.  I got an iPhone 4s and had 6 months left on my contract.  I wanted a nice phone so that when my contract was over I could leave Rogers and go elseswere that is cheaper with hopefully better customer service.  It turns out that the phone I bought was sold to a customer at a subsidies price and that contract was still live.  Now I own the phone, but Rogers wont unlock it.

 

I understand what Rogers are trying to do, but their method is totally backwards.  If they need to lock the phone to a contract, it should be to a specific number so unaware people don't fall into this trap.

 

In addition the unclocking staff member was a pompus know it all and after being on the phone with them for 45 minutes I still am with Rogers.

 

Do yourself a favor, don't sign with Rogers.  Maybe if they loose enough customers they will ammend their retention policy.
