Like I said the guy was a scammer.
You never have to give up your phone.
If you ever need it unlocked there are plenty of trustworthy websites if you don't want to do it local.
They just charge ridiculous amounts and since I am cheap I won't pay it.
Phones shouldn't be locked in the first place it's just plain stupid.
I would never buy a locked phone. Google is awesome with the Nexus series which come unlocked and also with no bloatware. Then again with Android you can root and unlock any phone.
Shame the CRTC didn't force these guys to make unlocks free.
If we want to unlock our Rogers Iphones that (for example) have finished their contract, can we take it into an apple store or RogersPlus store to have it unlocked?
If so, how long does it take? is there a cost?
