Lumia Unlock code

How is the procedure to request an unlock code via Rogers? I have a Lumia 635 prepaid (pay as you go), and I would like to unlock it. The websites I have tried to do so do not work. Thanks.

Hello Tds

If you bought the device outright from Rogers. You can contact them and have them give u the unlocking code for $50 but this device MUST be locked to Rogers. If its locked to another carrier, Rogers will NOT unlock it.

Hi Meowmix,

 

I bought the cellphone from the Bestbuy website, and it is locked to Rogers (prepaid). I am going to do what you mention above. Thank you for the information.

Hello Tds

Then you should be able to contact Rogers & have them give you the unlocking code for $50.

Re: Lumia Unlock code

Why would you pay Rogers $50 when you can get unlocking codes online,,,Search them and you can get one as cheap as $6.  Kijiji has people that will give  you a code as well

Hi Michael, 

 

I have tried three different well known websites for that segment. The common claim is that there is no code for the IMEI in their database (It is said to happen with certain percentage of new cellphones).  Therefore, unlocking it by Rogers may be the alternative.  I will be posting about my experience after contacting Rogers in the afternoon. Thank you for the suggestion.

Re: Lumia Unlock code
