Hello,

I signed up for this deal and today received LG G4 phone. Question to people who received phones from Zoomer - are these phones locked? How can I find out if the phone is unlocked (I do not have other carrier SIM cards)? I would prefer not to start this phone as I am planning to sell it, like for a 100$ or so.
On the box I see it says that phone was manufactured 08/2016.

Stupid question, but:

If I sign up with Zoomer, and then a week later Fido calls me with an amazing win-back offer, is there a "cool off" period within which I can cancel Zoomer and send back their phone?

There may be some hidden service code to display that info

Usually 30 days, less than 10 mins talk time and no mobile data usage (like 150KB or something...)

Do I have to pay to ship the phone back?

I signed up for an LG G4 and a P10 Lite about a week ago. The process to sign up wasn't great, but the experience has been positive as a whole. I received the phones the next business day. Porting out from Virgin took just 10 minutes and the CSR was very friendly. Also, unlock code stickers were stuck on the box.

I live in Montreal, Quebec. With Zoomer, I've been getting full bars outdoors and most of the time indoors. Virgin/Bell signal was slightly better where I live, but I'm fine with compromising given the great value. Besides, I have no complaints about call quality or network speed. My current phone is the bottleneck not their network lol

If you're in Montreal, both G4 and P10 Lite have good resale value and can sell very quickly on Kijiji. I sold my G4 for $210 and selling the P10 Lite for $300. I got about 6-7 people asking about both phones within 1 day of posting. Highly depends on area though, but P10 Lite is not bad for reselling in my area.

Zoomer also give you a return label with the phones. I think it's free to return.

What was bad about the sign up process? You call in, give them your info, and sign up.

It wasn't smooth for me. Long story short, they required a deposit for some obscure reason that's not related to my credit score. I had a post about that here. I was a bit annoyed, but went with it anyway since the deal is good.

Porting a landline number may take longer time.

Found unlock code on order summary.
