[Mobile] Bell Mobile now unlocks iPhones for $75 + HST

Just received word from Bell Executive offices that they now unlock iPhones as long as the account is in good standing and the phone is currently not in a contract. Eg. You had an iPhone 4 and upgraded to a 5 on a new 3 year contract, then you can pay $75+HST and have your old iPhone 4 unlocked.

Very late to the game and more expensive than the others.

Wow, what a ripoff...

With iPhones, all is required is that they send an unlock request to apple, and then you perform the unlock yourself by restoring your phone....

I thought the government said they have to provide the code free of charge once the phone is out of contract?

To the other user: Where can you get it done for $10?

Any good flea-markets in the Toronto area?

Try the Pacific Mall on Steeles. Lots of shops that'll do it for a lot less than what Bell charges.

While I agree the carrier has a right to charge a premium fee for convenience, $75 seems quite excessive.

TELUS has been unlocking iPhones for months for $50.
