You still need to hook it up to iTunes, I believe.
Not when I got my iPhone 4 unlocked about a year ago? Don't even have iTunes installed.

Called telus a few days ago and they unlocked mine for free. You guys should just give them a call and if you get someone nice they will hook you up I guess. Winking Face

Bought a new iPhone 8 plus from Telus in early November. Turns out it's already unlocked.

Telus phone, activated on Public Mobile but works on Rogers and Fido network too. Didn't have to even get it unlocked.

If you have an old locked phone and you are no longer with the original provider, you may not get it unlocked. I chatted with CRTC this morning and I was told that the phone has to be active in the carrier's network to get it unlocked for free. I am not sure whether you have to have active wireless service with the exact carrier or with its related brands (such as Telus/Koodo/PM).
What if you have an old phone you've upgraded from but stayed with the original carrier. I have a 5S for example from Bell, and went to the 7 (still with Bell). I understand I can get the 7 unlocked, but how about the 5S?

Don't know about iPads. My LG G pad is locked to Fido.
Have a Fido locked tablet. Anyone have luck with getting Robbers & Sons to unlock devices?

I have a Koodo phone that I currently use with Public Mobile. I messaged one of the Public Mobile mods and they asked for my IMEI, phone number, and public mobile account number. Got the unlock code a few minutes later.

Just a related question. If Koodo says they have unlocked your iphone after calling in how do you confirm this.
Is their a setting in the iphone you can check?
I want to use my iphone with a US sim when travelling but want to confirm it is unlocked.

They don't unlock it, they give you a code. And just put in a friends sims on a different network to test.

Not with iPhones. There are no codes with iPhones. When you power up an iPhone with a new SIM the iPhone connects to an Apple server and asks what it's lock status is. The server responds and tells the iPhone what SIMs it is locked to (if any).

Unlocking your phone just changes a setting in the Apple server.
