Unlocking iPhone Thread

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

Hello alaabasset


This has been asked many times on here. If you search the forums, you will see how to do it.


Anyways if this is a Rogers iPhone 4S and you havr the phone on a Rogers account, you can unlock it via Rogers for $50. This is the only official way you can unlock it. Contact Rogers and see what they can do.


If this is NOT a Rogers phone, then you will need to have that phone on the carrier its with and unlock it officially with them.

Sadly Rogers stopped the emails. They only provide service vis phone calls and online via the Rogers Live Chat.


Are you still with Rogers but just visiting Egypt? If so, just wait until you come back. IF you live in Egypt and have a Rogers locked phone, then you are out of luck. The phone must be attached on a Rogers account to be unlocked from them.

Well, so if someone can send me an activated rogers sim card on pay as you go -for example- and then i attach it to my iphone, then call them to unlock it, will this work??

No this will not work. You can ONLY unlock it via Rogers if you bought the phone outright from Rogers OR have the phone attached on a montly plan with Rogers. Pay as you go will NOT work.


All in all, you can not do anything unless the phone is attached on a Rogers account meaning month to month or contract and if you bought the phone straight from Rogers.
