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?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
@fmalik87 if you are the original purchaser of the phone and your contract has elapsed then you can call rogers and have them unlock it.
If you are not the original owner or you have not finished your contract you are out of luck with rogers but you can always try jailbreaking or there are some services online that you can pay to have your phone unlocked.
@ Chris. suppose if other person gifted iphone to friend. after gifted who is the owner. if he has iphone BOX , Iphone each & every thing so he is the owner of the iphone.
this is my point of view. if you agree so like...
for example : in future i will gift any thing so offcouse you are owner...
i am waiting for your response....
@fmalik87 I agree you are the new owner but Rogers needs the person who's account the phone was purchased on so they can see if the subsidies have been paid back. Carriers pay around I think $450 to apple for the iPhone and then sign the users up on a contract at a certain $ amount in order to re-coup that $450. Then they expect that $450 to be paid back over 3 yrs (in the case of rogers). They don't care what happens to the phone next as long as the original owner is still paying their contract. This is why they need the original owner to call in to get it unlocked as they verify if the $450 has been paid off yet or not.
Rogers always needs money, you money.
Look around. In other countries you can by a phone with 3 deferent providers together and switch them how do you want.
There is no future for company as Rogers with all this locking, charging and “service”
I just can't beleive this.
They're now offering iPhone 4S for 0$ on a 3 year contract and yet they want me to pay 350$ or so after 2 years contract done (on 3 year plan) for unlocking iPhone 4 (even through I have bought iPhone 4S earlier this year).
This is ridiculous and they don't care about customers at all.
They (and most companies) charge $50 to unlock (I won't go I to the rights and wrongs of them doing this)
To unlock the phone, the contract or hardware subsidy on it, must be fully paid off, that is likely where the rest of the 300 is potentially coming from.
SO Rogers is changing their policy for unlocking the device. The same old policy is still in affect BUT you are able to unlock the device 90 days AFTER activating the device on the Rogers network.
Do you know how this would affect the users who gave away their cell phones?
To be more specific, here is the thing: I bought my phone at Rogers, and after purchasing new phone I gave away the first one as a gift. The person who owns that phone now is living outside Canada.
Is it posible for me to unlock that phone without actualy bringing the phone to Rogers and only paying the 50$+ amount?
@pashoni just having the imei is probably enough. You should call rogers and try to unlock it. I mean they aren't at your house to see you have the actual phone in your hand.. (Now the phone being out of the country seems pretty useless Thats the part I don't understand..)
Phone is out of the country because I have gave it to my cousin as a gift. At the time being, we didn't knew that the baseband 04.11.08 isn't unlockable, so he got stuck with an ipod touch instead of the iphone.
I saw that Rogers unlocking policy starts from March, and I will use that opportunity to unlock phone for my cousin, so he can have fully functional iphone.
Thank you for your responses
If the phone *was* on the account and the phone since upgraded can the previous phone be unlocked?
i.e. Had an iPhone 4 on an account, upgraded to iPhone 5 and signed new contract. Old iPhone 4 is therefore no longer restricted.
I want to unlock my Iphone 5 that I bought from Rogers.
Can anyone guide me that what is the procedure to unlock it and what are the fees...???
Thanks in advance.
Good day. Help please. I bought the iPhone 4 on ebay.com. But it is worth referencing the Canadian operator Rogers. How can I be? Seller is not responsible. Nor any data on the phone I do not know except number. Thanks.
PS. I'm from Russia
