While U.S. consumers continue to be annoyed with AT&T’s iPhone monopoly, folks in Canada have reason to cheer. Rogers, and its budget subsidiary, Fido have announced a plan where their current customers can unlock iPhones for just $50 CAD.
This deal is only for existing Rogers/Fido customers who own a device not currently under contract. Customers simply need to pay the $50 and restore their iPhone to its original state via iTunes. By doing so, the device becomes unlocked.
According to iPhoneinCanada, users must:
- Have an account in good standing
- Have paid the un-subsidized / no term cost for the device at least 30 days prior OR have finished their Commitment Period (contract)
- Unlock a device which is listed in their equipment history (no grey market devices)
- Pay a $50 unlocking fee plus applicable taxes (note: prepaid customers must have a $50 plus the applicable taxes, balance on their account)
I’m not sure how many Canadians might be interested in this offer, but it might be worth checking out.
