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 AresLin


You still have to pay the $50 to Rogers for them to unlock it for you. That is the policy. You can look around and see if anyone can unlock it for a cheap price.

Is the unlocking done remotely or at a rogers store?

Hello jsalvacruz


You can go into any Rogers plus store or call in. Its better doing it at the store tho. After the give you the unlocking, you will need to plug in your phone to iTunes and restore it for the unlock to be accepted. At times it will just tell you to plug into iTunes and it will work. All Roger does is send your IMEI number to Apples white list and it unless via iTunes when plugged in.


So both store or over the phone.

I could really use some help.

I recently upgraded my iPhone 4 to a 5s and ended up selling my 4 to someone on Kijiji.

He's trying to get it unlocked since his provider is Bell but Rogers is telling him that I would need to add him to my account as someone who can make changes to it before they'd unlock the phone.

I don't feel comfortable doing this and was wondering if there's another way he can get it unlocked?

I don't mind authorizing the Rogers rep that he has permission to unlock my old phone however putting him on my account as someone who can make changes seems extreme to me.

Hello afxwinter


All you need to do is if the IMEI number of the iPhone 4 is on your account still for 90 days or more, you can go with him to any Rogers location and have them white list the iPhone. White list means the phone can be unlocked via iTunes when its plugged in and Apple will be notified about it. The white list is from Apple. So go with the buyer to a Rogers store and have them do it for u.


I would not suggest doing what the rep said. This can cause issues and fraud. Please do not follow what the rep told u..
