Best option for iPhone 5 on Bell Mobility?
One listed recently seem for Rogers / Telus.
Is there something special about Bell?
eBay is cheapest unless you are a client of Bell which is $50 plus taxes

Is there someone on eBay that is good & cheaper? Otherwise, like saying go look on the internet.

Use sellers eBay feedback as your guide.

As for cheap, the going rate is usually what eBay is offering.

Can anybody recommend a place/website to unlock an iPhone 4S locked to Telus for cheap? Most places charge $75 and the cheapest I found so far is $55... Any better deals out there? Thx.

I know but I'm not a Telus customer. So, I guess I need to go with some third party unlocker...

If I bought a brand new locked Rogers iPhone 6 , can a friend who has been on Rogers for a while now call in and unlock my phone for me? How does the 90 days policy apply in this case?

IMEI of the phone has to be active on the Rogers system for 90 days. New phones will not have touched the Rogers system yet.

Sometimes you can get someone nice who will do it before 90 days - just say you'll be travelling and would like it unlocked.

Yes four or five days ago Rogers closed the loophole. Nor surprising considering it was listed in the RFD hot deals section.

Looks like Protech Parts had to close down their online shop after last week's Rogers/Fido fiasco....
