Hi,

 

We'll be travelling to the Philippines for a few weeks shortly and I was wondering whether it is possible to get my iPhone 4 unlocked so that I can use it there with a local carrier?

 

Thanks

You guys can unlock your iPhone4 through remote unlocking method. It is the safest, easiest and affordable method to unlock any iPhone.

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

I called the number, yes, they do that, it cost $50 the only catch the phone it self has to be 3 years old, it has nothing to do with your account and whether or not you are on the contact. So today a 3 years old iphone would be a 3GS... why would I want to unlock that?

Seriously, Rogers are brutal.  I am so upset with them, and I tell anyone that asks me about Rogers service what has happened to me.

 

Be really careful if you buy a phone from someone.  Rogers have a really backward retention policy and it totally screws people over.  

 

I bought a phone from someone after my 3G was nearly dead.  I got an iPhone 4s and had 6 months left on my contract.  I wanted a nice phone so that when my contract was over I could leave Rogers and go elseswere that is cheaper with hopefully better customer service.  It turns out that the phone I bought was sold to a customer at a subsidies price and that contract was still live.  Now I own the phone, but Rogers wont unlock it.

 

I understand what Rogers are trying to do, but their method is totally backwards.  If they need to lock the phone to a contract, it should be to a specific number so unaware people don't fall into this trap.

 

In addition the unclocking staff member was a pompus know it all and after being on the phone with them for 45 minutes I still am with Rogers.

 

Do yourself a favor, don't sign with Rogers.  Maybe if they loose enough customers they will ammend their retention policy.

@kipper007 I can understand why you would be uset as you bought a locked phone.. But say they did unlock as you have tried then everyone who buys a locked iPhone can pretend they sold it to you and have you unlock it right away instead of waiting out their contract?

But yes the locking policy is weird and hard to understand. If I am under contract why not unlock my phone for me? Except maybe greed trying to get as much money out of me as possible when I travel..

The other problem is who wants a phone after 3 yrs anyways? Pretty much ready to replace my 3gs.. Would I even be able to get $50 for it if I tried to sell it after I unlock it?

It would be possilble if you remove network restriction set on your Iphone. For this, you need unique unlock code to remove lock on  your sim. Once it is free from lock, it can be used on any network available so that it would save you a lot from roaming. If you wish, PM me and I will recommend one to you.  Where you get unlock code at an affordable price and it is very easy and safe unlocking your phone there.

Here is the truth/fact/reality :

 

I have an iPhone 4, off-contract with rogers. I just moved with Bell for business reasons, so I just called Rogers few minutes ago and asked for unlock my phone. The friendly women told me this is very simple, for 49.95$ they will unlock it inside of 1-2 business days, then bill it on my account even it is already closed.

 

Note that my iPhone was off-contract and fully paid since time ago....

 

I'll keep you updated when I got my Bell signal on my phone 😉

Thats just it.  Rogers has no problem unlocking the phone for someone, IF that person outright owns the phone (either by buying it outright at first, or via paying it off, etc.

 

The problem is, that many people want/try to do this, before their contract is over, which technicaly rogers has still paid for part of that phone for you (till your contract is over).

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

At min i would remove your imei number from here.. not good to give out to other people.

IF its a rogers phone.. and its still locked.. as long as you OWN the phone, there was no contract left, etc on it, you can contact them, and pay $50 to have it unlocked.

do you have their email to contact unlocking iphone4

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

This would not be something you can do over the phone, you would have to call in and talk to customer support.

@KidTechnology if you plan to stay with Rogers you don't need to unlock the phone.

Hi, I'm wondering if I port my number from Rogers to another carrier will I still be able to call Rogers to unlock my Iphone 4 that I have with them? I'm thinking of going with the 5 with another carrier.

 

Thanks
