Unlock a very old nokia gsm phone

I have an old nokia 6086 phone, purchased in 2008, so it's out of subsidy long time ago...

 

Do I still need to pay 50$ to unlock this phone? the phone costs much less and I want to give it to my father who is not interested in smartphones.

 

Thanks!

Hi @jgmc,

 

A hardware issue will prevent us from unlocking your device. We apologize for the inconvenience. We maintain a database of device unlock codes to support the requests of our customers. Devices carried prior to 2009 have been removed from our database as part of our hardware discontinuation process, resulting in us not being able to provide unlock codes on these particular wireless devices.

Hello @jgmc

Unfortunately yes you would need to lay the $50 unlocking fee to unlock your device by Rogers. This rule was set by the CRTC.

I would check around and see if you can get it any cheaper.
