Hi, I have a question regarding unlocking iPhone. I am planning to buy an iPhone 5 on a 3 year contrsct plan. At the same time, I travel a lot on business and I plan to ask Rogers to unlock my iPhone so that I can use another SIM card when I am out of country. I know that AT&T in the US does it, not sure about Rogers. Let me know if this is something Rogers would do.

That is the wrong information you have gotten. You need to pay a $50 + tax unlocking fee inorder to unlock your device. I would call back & inform a manager that she is giving false information.
If that was the way she explained it, then how come all Rogers iPhones are locked to Rogers & Rogers asking for a $50 unlocking fee? The rep simply lied & gave the wrong information.
You can go to your local Rogers store, ask them to unlock your phone. The IMEI number must be on a Rogers active wireless account. Then if the phone has been on the account for more then 90 days, you can unlock it at the store for a one time payment of $50.
Here it is straight from Rogers :
"What are the restrictions?
When you purchase a wireless device on a new or existing Rogers account at full price, you are eligible to unlock it immediately.
For those customers who are under a term commitment, we have made some changes to our device unlocking policy to give you more flexibility in the way you use your wireless device. In March 2013, we’ll be changing our policy so that you no longer have to wait until you complete your full term commitment – you can unlock 90 days after activating your device on the Rogers network. We’re also making it even easier for you to have your phone unlocked by bringing it to any of our Rogers retail stores.
How much will it cost?
You can unlock your device for $50 plus applicable taxes.
Update March 6th, 6pm: Hi everybody. We’re happy to announce that our new unlocking policy will be implemented effective March 28th."
Rogers will unlock your phone if you clarify for their policy / rule. This is there policy:
1. The phone must be bought outright and be activated on a Rogers account.
2. If the phone is bought on a term you may get the phone unlocked after 90 days from phone's activation date, you need not wait till the term expires. ***
3. The unlocking fee is $50 if Rogers decides to unlock it for you.
If you do not meet this, they will not unlock the phone for you.
*** UPDATE ***
So if I don't "finish" my 3 year term with them, they won't unlock it? It does not make any sense. Can somebody confirm this?
It does make sense. if u dont believe me, here are a few sites / threads will show you the info i am giving you as well. It is correct & not lying or anything. You can also search on Google and see the same exact answer as well.. This started last year & it is the same exact unlocking policy till this day until Rogers changes it.
To have a device unlocked, a customer must:
