I was wondering if rogers will unlock phone no long on contract.
I have an iphone 3G and a galaxy captivate that i want to have permanently unlocked. I am btw aware of the jailbreak soft unlock provided on the iphone 3g.

I'm not entirely against it but just because of the fact that it is not legit you don't know who you are giving your $5 to, for starters. Second, it raises costs for providers who must build these losses into their prices. Not to mention, who is going to take your complaint if it doesn't work?
Anyway, it's just easier to buy an unlocked phone outright and save all the hassle from the get go.
Face it. Rogers will unlock a phone for $50 because the CRTC says they HAVE to. It's the law and all carriers have colluded to charge the same price. The service takes seconds to perform and the $50 is pure profit, basically a deterrent for people wishing to leave Rogers after their contract is done and the phone paid for. Because of this gouging, there are third party services that claim they can do it for less. But you take your chances with these. Obviously, it makes no sense to unlock a $50 phone, but it might to unlock a $500 phone.
