CRTC bans locked phones and carrier unlocking fees as of December 1st 2017

Hey guys!

So the CRTC made a ruling which all carriers MUST unlock all devices for free that are locked as of December 1st 2017. Any devices bought from the carriers that day forward must be unlocked for free as well upon buying it or doing a upgrade.

Just want to hear everyone's thoughts on this! I like the idea as it's not easy for someone to pay $50 for a unlocking fee and shouldn't be needed to begin with.

Let's stay on topic and please do not detail this thread. This is meant for the unlocking of devices. Thanks! 🙂

Just to expand, as i think i understand what your saying.

Can you just pay $20 a month (the tab part) rather than the 110?

No, not a monthly basis.

 

The only way to really avoid paying the regular monthly bill, would be to as Meowmix said, pay off the full balance of the tab out in one go, then you can cancel.

Just a reminder that this policy comes into effect tomorrow. Do not get ripped off by rogers.

That is very easy, just call them, give them the IMEI of your phone, and they will provide you an unlock code just like that.
