Hello @maktity

Unfortunately you would need to contact Rogers by phone & having them unlock it for you. The phone MUST be on a active Rogers wireless account for more then 90 days if bought on a contract in order for them to unlock it & its a $50 charge.

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

I'd like to know which unlocked iPhone 6 bought at a U.S. Apple store will work with Rogers fully.

 

The two models listed as unlocked models you can buy on Apple.com are A1586 and A1549. 

 

The A1586 appears to be a superset of the A1549 in terms of bands it supports, yet for some reason

 

Apple lists Rogers only supporting the A1549 on https://www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/

 

and Apple Canada lists both on https://www.apple.com/ca/iphone-6/specs/

Hello @ablatt
As far as i know,
A1549 will support LTE fully.
A1586 "may not" support LTE fully.

BUT Both apple version should support LTE.
AND both apple versions will work on Roger Network.
Using Unlocked "grey-market" phones isn't garunteed for full LTE max, your basic calls shouldn't be a problem.

@Meowmix might want to give you his input as well on this...
(or anyone else in the community!)

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

Hi Everyone,

Looking to unlock an iphone 5s that is currently locked with Bell. Has anyone had any unlocking experience with an online site. If so/not, can anyone recommend the best and cheapest method available?

 

Thanks,

B

Hello @bitznbytes

Unfortunately we can't list any sites which are third party on the forums due that this is a Rogers forum. Although I do know a few sites which cost is not a issue and the unlocking code is given to u within 24hrs. Have u tried contacting Bell?

Not yet but am in the process. Would like to chat with you elsewhere on a reliable but cheap online unlocking service?

Re: Unlocking iPhone Thread

Hello @yeeunson

Sadly Rogers can not unlock your device as you are not in Canada & the IMEI number is not connected to a Rogers Wireless account.

You can either go into a third party cellphone store & have them unlock it or check a online site which may offer it.
