no.

 

wont work in canada

 

my advice: sell it and use the money to buy a factory unlocked GSM/3G Iphone and pop in your existing rogers sim.

Hello sirliberty

You can unlock it BUT it wont be factory unlocked. Factory unlocked means its been unlocked by Apple.

No you can NOT use it with a GSM sim card. This is because its a CDMA phone & it does not accept GSM sim cards nor does it have a sim card slot.

If you want, sell it on Kijiji or Craigslist. You can also sell it at any cellphone store / fle market. see if they can do a trade for a GSM version.

You can get it unlocked but that would not be a factory unlock, as factory unlock means device unlocked by the manufacturer itself. You can't use a gsm card as your iphone is cdma so your phone might not be having a card slot.
