Last summer I purchased (for full price) an iphone 4 16gig, I called roger today to see if I could get it unlocked for the $50 fee and they told me only iphones which had a Rogers contract attached to them are elegible to be unlocked ie you had a contract which has matured. This is jsut unacceptable paying almost a 1000 dollars for a phone and it still being locked to Rogers.
Anyone get there purchased iphone 4 unlocked by Rogers?
Borat are you sure your phone is actually locked? Did you buy it from an Apple store or from a Rogers store? Paying full price for a locked phone would be bad news...
Call back and try to talk to someone else.. It doesn't sound right.
and i'm new to this whole unlocking feature, could anyone sum it up for me?.. I have an assumption, but rather find out what it really is.. lol
I just tried this. You must be an existing customer for this to be allowed. Which seems entirely counter-intuitive to me. So plan ahead folks... unlock your phones before you leave Rogers otherwise you're screwed (like me). So basically I paid out my full contract and the phone and I still can't use it.
Sigh... exactly the type of business practice why I left Rogers in the first place and completely ending any possibility I would ever go back. Now I'm working on getting my wife out.
Seriously, folks. Try a different carrier. The level of respect you get from other places will make you wonder why you didn't leave Rogers earlier.
I have a feeling that they cant unlock the device because they need an account to bill the $50 unlocking charge to. One option I have heard that supposedly works is if you open a prepaid wireless line and load $50 onto it. That way Rogers has a way of getting the $50 and assuming the device fits the other criteria (end of contract or bought outright) then there shouldnt be a problem.
I currently have an iPhone 4, and if I get the next iPhone thats coming out, is there any way to unlock the iPhone 4 after I have the new iPhone?
